Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive, Edward Hardy.

The Scheme’s Chief Executive Edward Hardy commented: “This competition offers a tremendous opportunity for those registered with the Scheme to collaborate with local schools and community groups to provide colourful and creative works of art across hoardings. Construction site hoardings are the ‘shop window’ of the industry, and it is excellent to see, through this competition, so many hoardings being used to communicate really important messages across our communities.

All entries receive congratulatory medals, certificates and fun packs as well as trophy and banner. There is also a special Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition brochure displaying all of the entries.
