Site Managers at Aldgate Place awarded for safety on site by the National House Building Confederation’s Health & Safety award.  

Barratt London is delighted to announce that our Aldgate Place development has received a national commendation for workplace safety, from the National House Building Confederation’s (NHBC) Health & Safety awards.

Russell Bond, Project Manager at Aldgate Place, is one of 54 site managers in Britain receiving accolades in the first round of awards. The NHBC’s health and safety experts inspected the development and commented that Aldgate Place has a “commitment for protecting employees and the public”.

According to NHBC’s Tom Kitchen, “construction sites have had significant reductions in injuries in the last 20 years with housebuilders putting health and safety practice high on their agenda”. Barratt London is highly committed to health and safety practices on-site, and recently hosted a health and safety seminar. The seminar was attended by various industry stakeholders who heard from Barratt London’s SHE Operations Manager, Michael Clifford, and guest speaker Jason Anker. Jason was paralysed from the waist down in 1993 due to an avoidable incident on a construction site and speaks on the emotional perspective of why health and safety on-site is incredibly important.

Aldgate Place will now compete for the regional and national safety titles on 3 July 2015.

Aldgate Place is a city-based development made up of one-bedroom suites, one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments and penthouses. The development features 463 new homes with excellent transport links and is on the doorstep of some of the Capital’s most dynamic neighbourhoods. Prices start at £730,000 for a one-bedroom apartment.
