Excellent CCS audit marks for McAvoy’s Oasis Academy site

We’re delighted to have received a Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) score of 42/45, after an audit at our Oasis Academy site in Bristol. The site team were commended for being highly committed to the CCS code of Conduct, as well as:

  • Demonstrating from the outset that our works have as low an impact as reasonably possible on the surrounding environment and local population.
  • Our site team engaging with the surrounding local impacted community and building strong relationships with local groups such as Men’s Shed and Help Bristol’s Homeless.
  • Our leading carbon reduction processes across all our operations which is clearly defined in our Carbon Reduction Strategy
  • The Health & Safety procedures, training programmes and occupational health support.

This achievement not only showcases our unwavering commitment to delivering high-quality buildings but also highlights our dedication to making a positive impact on the communities we serve.

The creation of the temporary school, by McAvoy, will allow the DfE to provide immediate school places for pupils in the area whilst a permanent school – Oasis Academy Temple Quarter – is under construction, with an estimated completion date of summer 2025.

The scheme, located on Spring Street, will include the creation of a single storey 1,069m2 school building for 180 pupils, with another storey being added in year 2 to accommodate a further 180 pupils. Innovative internal design features include a science lab, art classroom and a specialist kitchen unit.

The school buildings will utilise the very latest in precision manufacturing techniques and further reinforces McAvoy’s credentials for high quality, fast delivery, and sustainability in the education sector.
