The Scheme’s Chief Executive Edward Hardy commented: “Massive congratulations to all winners and runners-up of this year’s Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition. This competition offers a tremendous opportunity for those registered with the Scheme to collaborate with local schools and community groups to provide colourful and creative works of art across hoardings. Construction site hoardings are the ‘shop window’ of the industry, and it is excellent to see, through this competition, so many hoardings being used to communicate really important messages across our communities.

“Thank you to all the Scheme-registered sites and companies for participating and making a real difference to the local communities impacted by construction activity. These efforts continue to help improve the image of construction, and we look forward to even more sites entering the competition in 2020 and beyond.”

All entries receive congratulatory medals, certificates and fun packs as well as trophy and banner. There is also a special Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition brochure displaying all of the entries.
