Top team builds success.

THEconstruction company behind a new Hartlepool retirement village has won a top award for the high standards maintained on site and its communication with residents.

The site team for Castleoak, a specialist in the design and construction of care homes and retirement villages, scooped a Considerate Constructors scheme national award for the development off Merlin Way, Hartfields.

Castleoak is transforming unused land at Hartfields into 242 apartments and cottages for older people on behalf of the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust (JRHT) which is working in partnership with Hartlepool Council, North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Trust and Hartlepool Primary Care Trust.

The site is scheduled for completion in February 2009.

The team was praised for its communication with the community and also for its high levels of waste reduction and recycling.

Under the scheme, developers register their sites for regular inspection. Frommore than 6,500 across the UK, Castleoak was one of just 472 firms who received an award.

Castleoak's regional operations director, John Johnson, said: "Making sure we run a safe, clean site and respecting the communities we work in are priorities for Castleoak and it's great that these values are recognised by the construction industry."

Nigel Ingram, of the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, added: "I'm thrilled for Castleoak. The team at the Hartlepool site has been a beacon for others to follow in their approach, attitude and commitment."
