Win a year's free registration with the Scheme!

To celebrate 5 years of Company Registration and the introduction of Supplier Registration, the Scheme is giving 10 companies the chance to win a year's free registration with the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

Review of ITIOC 2014

The Considerate Constructors Scheme’s ‘Improving The Image Of Construction’ (ITIOC) event ran for its second year, and was attended by over 250 industry professionals keen to learn more about considerate construction. The event took place on the 17th September at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nottingham, and was attended by the Scheme’s Associate Members, Company Partners and Client Partners. A wide range of professions, including site managers, health and safety advisers and community liaison officers, were able to attend a number of workshops held throughout the day on various topics to help them understand the requirements of the Scheme and hear from other industry organisations. The workshops that delegates could attend were: Planning for a site visit David Watson, the Scheme's Immediate Past Chairman, discussed preparation before a site visit An experienced Scheme Monitor discussed how a site should...

The Scheme celebrates its 80,000th registered site

The Scheme celebrates its 80,000th registered site

The Considerate Constructors Scheme has reached its 80,000th registered site, an important milestone in the Scheme's history, and just over a year since recognising its 70,000th. The 80,000th site belongs to Morgan Sindall’s Brampton Village Primary School site in Huntingdon, and the Managing Director for Construction East and the project team from Morgan Sindall were presented with a plaque on Friday 19th September to mark the occasion. Registering a site with the Scheme demonstrates a commitment to improving the image of construction, as all registered sites must adhere to a Code of Considerate Practice. This involves a commitment from sites registered with the Scheme to care about appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value their workforce. All registered sites are regularly monitored by an experienced industry professional to assess their performance against this Code....

The Scheme partners with The Prince’s Trust

The Scheme partners with The Prince’s Trust

The Considerate Constructors Scheme has become a partner of youth charity The Prince’s Trust to support their ‘Get Into’ programme which helps to tackle youth unemployment. The Scheme will sit on the committee of The Prince’s Trust Built Environment Leadership Group (BELG) and will specifically support the ‘Get into Construction’ programme, which helps unemployed young people gain valuable training and skills, and ultimately find employment within the construction industry. Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, training or education. Recent research by The Prince’s Trust suggests that three-quarters of business leaders in the construction sector believe a significant skills crisis will hit their firms within the next three years (79 per cent), while two fifths predict this will happen within the next 12 months (45 per cent). Three in four construction bosses surveyed...

Wernick Hire becomes first registered Supplier

Wernick Hire becomes first registered Supplier

The Considerate Constructors Scheme has welcomed Wernick Hire as its first registered supplier in its new Supplier Registration membership scheme. Introduced in June 2014 in recognition of the critical contribution suppliers make to the construction industry, Supplier Registration is for companies that provide goods and materials to the construction industry. The Wernick Group have been supplying modular and temporary buildings for over 80 years and have grown to be the largest supplier in Britain. Commenting on Wernick Hire’s registration, Mike Petter, Chairman of the Scheme said: We’re delighted to welcome Wernick Hire to the Scheme. Supplier Registration is an important step in our development as an organisation that is pushing for higher standards across the whole construction industry. Wernick Hire consistently applies high standards throughout its business and that makes them an ideal member of the Scheme. Michael Thistlethwaite,...

'Spotlight on… apprenticeships' update

'Spotlight on… apprenticeships' update

Earlier this year the Scheme shined a spotlight on apprenticeships and looked at what the industry was doing to encourage new talent into construction. 'Spotlight on... apprenticeships' introduced facts regarding apprenticeships and the benefits that many employers have gained by offering this type of work placement. There are already a number of campaigns offered throughout the UK, and many opportunities within construction, but there is still much that can be done to attract new talent into the industry. The response the Scheme received from the industry once 'Spotlight on... apprenticeships' launched was fantastic, with many sites and companies getting in touch with the Scheme to demonstrate what they are doing with apprentices. Many articles and case studies from the industry have been added to the Scheme's 'Spotlight on... apprenticeships' webpage, which you can view by clicking here. Bam shared...
