Registrations continue to rise
The Scheme is pleased to report that registration numbers for 2013 are currently outperforming 2012's as the industry remains committed to improving the image of construction.
The Scheme is currently experiencing an 8% increase when compared to the number of registrations received in 2012. The number of Site Registrations received this year has continued to outperform those in 2012 with only May this year experiencing a slight decrease, with 704 registrations versus 710. In April 2013, the Scheme achieved an outstanding 20% increase with 744 registrations versus 2012's 622, and June experienced a 10% rise with 669 compared to 607. July this year received 746 registrations against 2012's 650 – a 15% increase and a number that makes this July the best performing ever since the Scheme began.
These numbers represent a great achievement not only for the Scheme, but for the industry as a whole. It is evidence that even through difficult and uncertain times, the industry continues to want to make a positive change to its image and continues to see value in registering with the Scheme.
The levels of consideration shown towards communities and neighbourhoods, the industry's workforce and the environment continue to improve year on year. This is seen at the Scheme's annual National Awards, where registered sites and companies are recognised for their outstanding contribution towards improving the image of construction. The Scheme's recent 2013 National Site Awards were the biggest and best yet. The Scheme presented the industry with the highest number of awards it has ever given, further proof that not only does the industry continue to support the Scheme and its values, but that it continues to raise the benchmark and set even higher standards of consideration.
The industry's support for the Scheme and the aim of improving the image of construction has been unwavering since it began in 1997. The Scheme would to take this opportunity to thank the industry for its help and support, and look forward to a brighter, more considerate future.
