Nathan is the right kind of neighbour

In C G Fry & Son’s latest industry award, site manager Nathan Pyett has been judged just the kind of operator you’d like to have working next door.

At the 2011 Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards in London he was presented with a bronze award.

It was in recognition of the care taken by Frys at the company’s small development of new homes at Salway Ash, where Nathan was manager. He is now in charge of a Frys’ Balidon Square development at Yeovil.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a national initiative set up by the building industry to reward concern for the environment, workforce, site neighbours and the general public. Awards this year were presented for the highest-scoring 7.5 per cent of sites selected from over 8,500 eligible projects completed in 2010.

Nathan, 40, has been with Frys ever since leaving school. He joined the firm as an apprentice carpenter at 17, and became a site manager just four years later at the age of 21.

He said: “I’m really chuffed with this award, because it’s national recognition for the trouble the team have taken to be as considerate as they can.

“The site at Salway Ash was a small one, with neighbours on both sides, and it’s important to do everything you can to minimise any nuisance.

“It means things like keeping the site tidy and the road clean, making sure there is no loud noise from radios and so on, keeping the neighbours in touch with what’s going on and making sure they have no concerns.”
