Roman House has won the title of Britain's most considerate construction site.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme Awards recognise the highest levels of care shown towards the general public, site staff and the environment.

Edward Hardy, Chief Executive of the CCS, said: "With exceptional site scores and a glowing report, Berkeley has displayed extraordinary commitment to the Scheme's Code of Considerate Practice. The work at Roman House is a fantastic example to the industry and truly deserves this highest award. Winning 36 awards in total this year proves Berkeley's commitment to considerate construction. Many congratulations to everyone involved with the site."

Berkeley acquired the site in 2010 and work started during the summer of 2012. The site is framed by a landscaped garden complete with a surviving fragment of the Roman London Wall. This intimate space is considered one of the City's best-kept secrets.

Rob Perrins, Managing Director of the Berkeley Group, commented: "The team at Roman House ran the site with exceptional cleanliness and presentation and showed real imagination in their approach. Site workers received visits from an occupational nurse every two months and they trialled hi-vis jackets with built-in back support. Over 20 tonnes of wood was donated to a community recycling project. They helped disadvantaged local teenagers learn about construction and worked in partnership with Shelter and Street Elite. This was a fantastic effort from everyone in Berkeley Homes (South East London)."
