Ivor Goodsite's Hoarding Competition 2014

Ivor Goodsite's Hoarding Competition 2014

After an incredible response from sites all over the UK, the Scheme is pleased to announce the winners of this year's Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition. Last year saw the launch of the competition whereby construction sites invited local schools and children's groups to participate in decorating their hoardings. Events were organised over the summer months, where children could let their imagination run wild as they decorated site hoardings based on their chosen theme. This year's competition saw the second Hoarding Competition launched in April and the Scheme has received an even bigger response than last year! The Ivor Goodsite Hoarding competition has proved to be a successful innovation for construction sites across the UK to work together with their surrounding communities, and actively involve young people who may be affected by their works. Upon entering the competition, the children were...

Changes to the Scheme's Board

Changes to the Scheme's Board

On the 1st July 2014, the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Board experienced a number of changes to its structure. The Scheme welcomed its new Chairman Mike Petter as David Watson, Chairman for the past two years, steps down from the role. David joined the Scheme as a Monitor in 2005, becoming a Director in January 2008 and Chairman in 2012. In David's time as Chairman, he's helped the Scheme introduce a number of new initiatives and celebrate many milestones including 70,000 Site Registrations and 100,000 Monitor visits. He saw in the development and launch of the new Code and Checklist in 2013 and has helped develop Supplier Registration in 2014. David’s role as Immediate Past Chairman means he will remain on the Board and continue to advise on the Scheme’s future direction for another year. Mike Petter became a Scheme...

New second visit reports

New second visit reports

Over the coming months, the Considerate Constructors Scheme will be rolling out a revised report template for second visits on registered sites. Currently the Scheme’s Monitors revisit a registered site and complete a brand new report summarising that visit. The purpose of the second report is to reflect that site’s performance at the time of the visit but also to demonstrate any changes, positive or negative, since the first visit. In many instances this means reiterating many of the same observations in the second report that appeared in the first and it was felt that this distracted from any changes witnessed. After speaking to contractors, clients and the Scheme’s Monitors, it was felt that the second report should focus more on any changes witnessed since the first visit with no need to dilute the report by reiterating comments made...

Sponsoring TeamBuild 2014

Sponsoring TeamBuild 2014

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is proud to be sponsoring this year’s TeamBuild, which is a cross-disciplinary construction competition held annually every November. Every entry is reviewed by a panel of judges made up of representatives from industry institutions, and this year the Scheme has been invited to join the panel. The Scheme has also been asked to submit a question for the competition to recognise the important role that considerate construction plays in the design and build process. The Scheme's Code of Considerate Practice asks registered sites and companies to value their workforce, which includes identifying personal development needs and promoting training. Competing in TeamBuild provides an excellent opportunity for those who enter to develop their skills and learn from their team's knowledge through practical exercises. The competition is supported and held in high regard by all the major...

CITB's Be Fair Framework

CITB's Be Fair Framework

A key requirement of the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice for registered sites, companies and suppliers is to provide a workplace where everyone is respected, treated fairly, encouraged and supported. While the Scheme has seen significant progress in this area over recent years, it is clear that much work still needs to be done and CITB has been working alongside the construction industry to develop the BeFair Framework which was launched in June 2014. Developed in partnership with Constructing Equality, this new approach aims to transform working environments across all segments of construction. It will address all forms of discrimination, negative cultures and practices to create a fair, inclusive and respectful industry for everyone. The framework accreditation is the very first of its kind and is awarded by CITB to achieving companies. It will help employers discover the business...
