The contractor delivering a flagship £19m project for Somerset County Council has scored top marks in a national initiative aimed at ensuring safe, clean, and considerate working.
Alun Griffiths, which is delivering Taunton’s M5 Junction 25 improvements, scored 43 out of a possible 50 in the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) and was awarded a certificate of excellence.
Somerset County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Cllr John Woodman said: “The team at Alun Griffiths has done a fantastic job so far in delivering the project on time and on budget – and they remain firmly on schedule to achieve this. They fully deserve these plaudits for achieving excellence as a contractor across the board, and we’re delighted to be working with the team not just on this key project but on a number of other important schemes in the county.”
Alun Griffiths Pre-Construction Director Simon Dunn added: “I’m incredibly proud of the team for this achievement. The judges recognised this has been a really challenging time and to achieve so highly in all categories while delivering to schedule has been hugely satisfying. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Somerset County Council.”
