We are proud to announce that we are now officially approved members of the Considerate Constructors Sceheme, with effect from today. To be accredited with this our work has been monitored and scored on various merits to make sure we meet certain criteria of quality, appearance and respect to the community.
So what is the Considerate Constructors Scheme? The Considerate Constructors Scheme is the national initiative set up by the construction industry to improve its image. Any work that could be construed by the general public as 'construction' can be registered with the Scheme.
Sites, companies and suppliers that register with the Scheme are monitored against a five-point Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage performance beyond statutory requirements. The Code consists of the following five sections:
Care about Appearance - Ensuring that the external appearance of sites enhances the image of the industry.
Being organised, clean and tidy. Enhancing the appearance of facilities, stored materials, vehicles and plant and raising the image of the workforce
by their appearance.
We scored "Excellent" on Care about appearance.
Respect the Community - Informing, respecting and showing courtesy to those affected by the work,
