What is the CCS?
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is the national initiative set up by the construction industry to improve its image.
Construction sites and companies that register with the Scheme are monitored against a Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.
The Scheme is concerned about any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment.
Construction companies and sites registered with the Scheme strive to minimise any negative impact that construction activity may have on neighbourhoods, while leaving behind long-lasting benefits that enhance communities.
This is important. The requirement for organisations to register with an appropriate good practice scheme is a feature of the standards the Government has set out for construction procurement.
I commend the Scheme for the good work it has done for our industry, and I support their ongoing efforts in improving the image of construction.
