Borras awarded 2 Silver’s at the Considerate Constructors Awards
Borras London Division are celebrating after receiving recognition for 2 different schemes at the recent 2018 Considerate Constructors National Site Awards.
The Victor Churchill Building project team collecting their award
Held on April 18th at Plaisterers’ Hall, London the awards recognise extraordinary achievements in improving the image of the construction industry; measuring contractors on their consideration towards the public, environment and their workforce.
The two successful projects, both of which were awarded Silver awards and delivered by our specialist London Division, were the regeneration of Cassiobury Park in Watford and the construction of the new Victor Churchill Building at the Royal Foundation of St Katherine’s.
Completed in June 2017 on behalf of Watford Borough Council the £5.4m project at Cassiobury Park incorporated varying new build and restoration elements across the parks extensive 190 acre grounds. Construction of a new eco-friendly Hub Building and state-of-the-art paddling pools in the heart of the park formed the largest part of the scheme whilst accompanying works included the restoration of a Grade II listed bandstand, creation of a new entrance and the refurbishment of the park Café.

Works at The Royal Foundation of St Katherine’s spanned 38 weeks and saw the creation of a new two storey, 7 bed-roomed accommodation block which will serve as a retreat centre. The Foundation has been a centre of worship, hospitality and service since its founding by Queen Matilda in 1147. The present object of the charity is the advancement of the Christian religion through the provision and maintenance of a Christian conference and sanctuary centre on their site in Limehouse, London.

Borras staff were joined by clients and other members of the project teams on the day, which was one of 12 ceremonies held across the country to celebrate the awards.
Congratulations to the entire project team on two fantastically delivered schemes!
Both the Contract and Site Managers were extremely approachable and professional and always kept us fully informed of both the progress of the build and any possible impact/access issues that may have occurred. Any queries or questions that we had were fully resolved and answered at the earliest opportunity and an excellent working relationship was quickly established between Borras and the Red Cross.
