Ardmore Construction, the main contractor at Bramshott Place Village in Liphook, has just been awarded a prestigious Bronze certificate of ‘Performance Beyond Compliance’ under the Considerate Constructors scheme.
The scheme, which was launched in 1997, has an overall remit to improve the image of the construction industry as far as its activities impact on the environment, its workforce, and the general public. Contractors who sign up to the scheme are monitored against a Code of Practice, which is designed to encourage working methods that go way beyond the acceptable minimum.
Essentially it means that companies wishing to be recognised as Considerate Constructors have to be ‘good neighbours’, carefully managing noise, mess, safety and their effect on the environment.
Andrew Maull, Project Manager for Ardmore Construction, commented that some aspects had to be especially carefully considered at Bramshott Place Village, where all of the residents are over 55. As many of the homes are already occupied, this means minimising noise, especially early in the morning. “Most of the residents wake up fairly late, so we don’t start up noisy machinery at 7.30 in the morning,” he said. “We’re also very active on clearing up mud and dirt. Even the smallest stone gets picked up. What it really means is being respectful to people and their properties. We’re building next to their homes and we make a point of listening to their needs.”
Ardmore Construction’s ‘Performance Beyond Compliance’ rating meant that they had to score four or more points in all eight categories of the site code, a total which means their performance is well above average and worthy of congratulation. As work continues apace at Bramshott Place Village, and more of the cottages and apartments are sold, having a Considerate Constructor on site is of vital importance.
Phase 1 of Bramshott Place Village is now complete, with Ardmore Construction hard at work on Phase 2. The Village is an outstanding living environment, offering a lifestyle with increasing appeal for the independent, busy over 55s, who like the idea of a community of like-minded neighbours, with convenient facilities, and a little extra security in the form of a call system connecting all properties to the village manager’s office.
Prices range from £290,000 to £325,000 for the apartments and from £440,000 to £525,000 for the cottages. Further information about the homes available for sale at Bramshott Place Village is available from the sales office on 01428 722800, or by visiting www.bramshottplace.co.uk
