The Interserve site team delivering the UK’s first high energy Proton Beam Therapy Centre for the NHS have achieved a Considerate Constructors Gold Award. The award was presented to the Project Manger Adrian Davidson at the ceremony held at The Lowry Hotel Manchester.

The specialist facility is being constructed within the grounds of the existing busy cancer hospital in a residential suburb of Manchester. The Monitor’s Site Report observed amongst other criteria: The Site’s high standard of appearance; level of communication with hospital staff and neighbours; participation in charity initiatives; and the careful monitoring and control of environmental impact i.e. utilising a specially designed concrete mix with recycled constituents that reduces the amount of cement and water required and cuts setting times avoiding the need to power float at night!

Mike Petter, Chairman of the Considerate Constructors Scheme said:

“It is our privilege to reward the efforts of all those involved in projects which set the bar in terms of considerate construction. We never fail to be impressed each year by the high levels of innovation and excellence evidenced throughout the industry.

Each award-winning project serves as a shining example to the industry as to what can be achieved across a range of different sized projects and in all sectors of the industry. My congratulations to all sites that have received a National Site Award.”

This award follows previous CCS successes for Procure21+ projects delivered by Interserve on The Christie site, with the Brachytherapy project also achieving CCS Gold and the Teenage and Young Adult Unit achieving a CCS Silver Award.

The project is involved as part of the Build UK Open Doors initiative taking place this June – as part of the ongoing dedication to maintain Gold status going forward.
