The East End Thames View development has won silver at the Considerate Constructors Awards 2014.
The awards recognise schemes that benefit the public, developed with careful consideration on how they will affect communities, the workforce and the environment.
Around 8,500 sites were entered, with a shortlist of the top ten per cent considered. Of these, 28 companies won bronze awards, 12 won silver and six won gold.
Thomas O’Toole, project manager at Jerram Falkus Construction, the contractor for the scheme, accepted the award at a ceremony this week.
Director at the firm, William Jerram, said: “All of the site team who won silver at the awards have achieved something excellent.
"Our scheme, helped by Bob’s Energy Centre, has the first green-clad substation in the country, a green roof with bird nesting facilities, a donation of a steel container to the local allotment society and off-site car parking.
"In fact we exceeded all our section 106 requirements, with local employees running the site canteen and by attending resident meetings, to name but a few."
