Zayo won gold in the Streetworks category, making 2015 the third consecutive year the company has been honoured.
The Considerate Contractor Scheme, founded by the City of London in 1987, works to encourage building and civil engineering contractors working in the City to operate in a safe and considerate manner, taking into account other users. Winners are judged on a code of good practice, which incorporates public comments. The code requires that they operate with care, cleanliness, considerateness and cooperativeness, taking into account comments from members of the public.
Leeland Pavey, chief operations officer for Zayo, says: “This award is a testament to the quality, efficiency and expertise with which Zayo runs its projects. We are thrilled to have been recognised for the third year running.”
“Zayo is no stranger to the challenges faced by construction projects, and we are always careful to take every possible precaution to ensure that customers and members of the public do not have to deal with obstructions. Zayo prides itself on delivering high-bandwidth connectivity to businesses across the U.K., U.S. and Europe and this award is an example of the commitment and dedication of our contractors.”
