Nicholas Stephens Construction is committed in improving the image of the construction industry so we are proud members of the Considerate Constructors Scheme. This year we achieved our highest ever score of 42/50 for the project at 9-11 Kingly Street and we aim to achieve these scores across all of our sites.
Our projects managers and office staff have completed e-learning courses to make positive changes to our sites in order to maintain our high standards and further improve our image to the community and within the industry.
Within our team we have Thomas Steliou, a Assistant Quantity Surveyor, who is developing his skills with us whilst also studying at college. His experience on site and in the office is valuable to this company and we wish him every success at achieving a great result at the end of his course.
Our company is dedicated in making our roads safer for cyclists. We support and promote healthy living in a safe environment. Our actions to promote cycle safety include: training our employees on traffic management, displaying traffic safety cards on our site projects, and giving safety cards to delivery drivers to remind them of the vulnerability of cyclists. We hope that our positive involvement will aid all road users.

We are very pleased with the success of 9-11 Kingly st, in which we gained a Considerate Contractors Bronze award. Owain Lloyd the site manager did a fantastic job meeting nearly all aspects of Considers contractors criteria.
As a construction company we are very aware of the industry’s effects on the environment. This is a pressing issue in the twenty first century so we chose McGraths skip company who recycle 99% of all of our skip waste. We also work with sustainable suppliers and we track where our products come from. While we recycle on site we have also focused our waste management in our office by changing the majority of our documents to paperless as well as having recycling facilities.
We support a range of charities in order to help those in less fortunate situations. These charities include: The Lighthouse Club which helps those in the construction industry who have suffered financial and emotional difficulty, The Heart of England Forest which is a charity committed to helping reverse centuries of woodland decline by planting thousands of acres of forests within the UK, Shelter from the Storm, a London based homeless charity who collect donations (we have a clothes donation box on our 9-11 Kingly Street job) and also the Soho Arts Foundation which we have a long standing relationship with and continue to support them.
We have recently relocated to a new office block in Loughton. This move has not only increased our office space but it has also improved our working environment with an open plan design and large windows for natural light. We are very happy with the move and are especially proud of our new meeting room!
During this project we managed the alteration of a shopping centre into a large exciting commercial space. We especially love the sunlight which illuminates the building, along with the steel structure that has the potential to extend the first floor.
