Construction firm Jerram Falkus' Burford Close project, currently building six bungalows for older occupants, received an 'outstanding' Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) report score as part of its ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) audit.
Set to be completed and handed over to Barking and Dagenham Council this spring, the Burford Close scheme scored 36 out of 50 points for its site cleanliness, environmental consideration and staff welfare; the council had set a target of 27 points for the developer to meet.
In a statement, Jerram Falkus said: "We are currently seeing 40% of our supply chain comprised of local businesses and labourers; this is further evidence of our commitment to social value through our project operations in the borough of Barking and Dagenham."
