Homebuilder match Considerate Constructor record

Published 9 June 2014

The WDH Homebuilder team are celebrating after matching their best ever score for a first site visit by the Considerate Constructor scheme (CCS).

The team working on the five new properties on Nicholson Street, Castleford, scored 38 out of 50 – matching the best first-visit score of any previous WDH development under the Considerate Constructor scheme, for which the national average score is 35.

Nicholson Street scored particularly highly in the Appearance, Respect for Community and Value the Workforce categories, with CCS monitor David Pearson’s report describing the site as a “very neat, clean and site that is obviously well organised.”

The Homebuilder team was launched in 2012 and sees members of WDH’s own skilled local workforce build homes across the district to Level Four of the Code for Sustainable Homes. WDH is one of very few social landlords building properties using its own workforce.

Adam Green, Homebuilder Manager for WDH, said: “We’re delighted that the site has matched the best ever score for a Considerate Constructor first visit and so much credit much go to Site Manager Dean Hunter and his team for this impressive achievement.”

Nicholson Street sees the construction of the 25th property for the Homebuilder team, and the site includes the first ever timber framed home built by Homebuilder.
