The Considerate Constructors Scheme is pleased to welcome Constructionline as they become a key member of its Scheme Supporter initiative.
Scheme Supporters has been set up to formalise the relationships the Scheme has with other construction industry bodies. This will enable the Scheme to work closely with these organisations to promote best practice across the construction industry.
However, though Constructionline have only recently joined as a Scheme Supporter, the Scheme has been working with them for many years. Constructionline host a number of their 'Meet the Buyer' events each year across the UK which the Scheme participates in, raising awareness of its Company Registration initiative to the many trade contractors and main contractors who attend. To be able to meet with both buyer and supplier is a great opportunity to build relationships and promote considerate construction.
The Scheme also teamed up with Constructionline to offer its members a 10% discount on the first year of Company Registration. Constructionline understand how important it is for a contractor to demonstrate that they work to the highest of standards, and registering with the Scheme is one way in which they can do just that. Philip Prince, Sales and Marketing Director of Constructionline, notes that "joining the Scheme is a great way for firms to differentiate their business at the all-important pre-qualification stage. We recognise this on our database by giving our members the opportunity to display their Scheme membership on their Constructionline profile which is available for our buyers to see and search upon".
More recently, a meeting between the Scheme and Constructionline proved extremely productive, with both organisations planning to collaborate on a number of future projects.
Philip Prince commented:
Following the success of the Considerate Constructors Scheme's Company Registration initiative, there are now even more ways in which we can work together for the benefit of both of our members. As well as welcoming the Scheme back to our upcoming 'Meet the Buyer' events in Edinburgh, Durham and London we will also be launching a campaign to make sure that our members are aware of their discount, and how they can display their Scheme membership on their Constructionline profile to ensure they are showing up in as many buyer searches as possible.
Edward Hardy, Chief Executive of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, added:
We are extremely pleased to welcome Constructionline as a Scheme Supporter. By Constructionline allowing members to display their registration with the Scheme on their profile, it means those companies can demonstrate their commitment to working to the highest standards of consideration. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Constructionline, working closely with them on a number of new initiatives to promote a more considerate industry.
