Environmental Behaviours

A sustainable Thameslink Programme

Thameslink Programme undertook works in a variety of sensitive locations from Bedford to Brighton through central London locations such as London Bridge. It was important to our sustainable development vision that we employed high standards of environmental protection and engaged and respected our communities to minimise any negative impacts from our works.

Being a Considerate Constructor

The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) is a non-profit-making, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image. In 2016 Thameslink Programme was awarded two Gold and one Silver Award under the Considerate Constructors Scheme recognising the outstanding efforts of our teams and suppliers in employing best practice and improving the image of the construction industry.

The awards went to our London Bridge Station redevelopment project (Costain), our Bermondsey Dive Under project (Skanska) and our New Cross Gate project (Balfour Beatty Rail). Our London Bridge and Track project teams were also awarded ‘exceptional’ scores under the Considerate Constructors Scheme demonstrating their commitment to the highest level of achievement.
