Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition 2016 winners announced!

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is delighted to announce this year’s winners and runners-up in the Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition.

This increasingly popular competition provides the construction industry with a fantastic opportunity to engage and build relationships with communities. This year proved to be the most successful yet in the four years it has been running, with 50 sites taking part and over 2800 children across the UK designing and decorating site hoarding.

The competition encourages Scheme-registered sites, companies and suppliers to invite local communities, particularly the young, to help design and decorate their hoarding or perimeter based on a chosen theme. This provides a great opportunity to talk about important messages such as safety and wellbeing, while promoting all that is positive about the UK construction industry.

This year there was a wide range of entries based on themes such as the ‘Queen’s 90th Birthday’, ‘Science’, ‘Sports’ and ‘Under the Sea’. The amount of effort which went into each entry was incredible and it shows from all the fantastic designs that were produced. Not only do those involved learn more about construction and what an interesting and exciting industry it is to be part of, but the sites become much-admired features in their respective towns.

Edward Hardy, Chief Executive of the Scheme, commented:

“I would like to congratulate this year’s winners and runners-up. Each entry looks fantastic and is a credit to all those involved and to the industry as a whole. I would also like to thank the contractors for their enthusiasm and passion to engage with their communities and promote the very best of what our industry can do. Well done to all!”

Each entry receives congratulatory medals, certificates and goody bags as well as a trophy and a Hoarding Competition banner to proudly display on site. Winners of the competition will also receive a complimentary visit from Ivor himself! A special edition Hoarding Competition brochure listing all of this year’s entries will be published shortly.

From the 50 entries, and after much deliberation, eight winners have been selected while the remaining entries are named as runners-up.
