Construction Project Overview

This large-scale residential apartment complex project consists of four impressive blocks within Birmingham City Centre. Winvic Construction has been awarded a Considerate Constructors Scheme Gold National Site Award for the incredible standards upheld during the project in 2023. The Winvic site team has demonstrated exceptional work standards and a strong commitment to the Considerate Constructors Scheme, positively impacting the community, environment, and workforce development in the process.

Project Highlights

The site made a strong first impression throughout 2023 with its well-managed display of project information. The project actively contributed to the local economy by prioritising employment opportunities for nearby residents. Communication with the public was transparent, utilising social media and a website for consistent updates. Environmental protection remained a key focus, with rigorous measures in place. The site offered outstanding workforce facilities, ensuring fair and equal treatment for all employees. Additionally, extensive training and development programmes promoted growth within the construction industry.

Innovations & Best Practices

The site team showcased exceptional leadership through innovations and best practice initiatives. Aiming for NetZero, the team utilised ECOPact concrete and a best practice, and Eco Crete Extra as an innovation, thereby significantly reducing carbon emissions compared to standard mixes. They further demonstrated best practices by recycling and reusing furniture, promoting resource conservation and waste reduction.

Respecting the Community

The Considerate Constructors Scheme’s messaging was prominently visible throughout the site. The project team emphasised a local focus, with a majority of the workforce residing nearby. They generously supported various charitable causes and actively engaged in community outreach. The emphasis on maintaining a clean and orderly site, along with the positive “Doing It Right” scheme, earned the company a Ceca award.

Caring for the Environment

The company’s commitment to NetZero was evident through award nominations and proactive environmental initiatives. Thorough environmental assessments were conducted specifically for this project. Noise and vibration were carefully monitored, and the company actively tracked their carbon footprint and offsets. Through continued involvement with local green spaces and exploring ways to reduce plastic use, the contractor demonstrated ongoing environmental stewardship.

Valuing the Workforce

This site prioritised a culture of respect, fair treatment, and support for all its employees. Development plans and annual reviews fostered personal growth. The company provided site-specific training and encouraged subcontractors to participate in its development schemes. An open-door policy promoted workforce feedback, and the company actively promoted careers within the industry. Directly employed staff benefited from a comprehensive package focused on health and well-being. High-quality welfare facilities received daily inspection and cleaning to ensure a comfortable work environment.

Congratulations to the team for these outstanding performance levels.
