SCHEME NEWS
The Scheme is delighted to announce the development of Supplier Registration, a
new type of registration which allows companies who provide goods and materials
to the industry to register with the Scheme.
Supplier Registration
Historically, the Scheme has
focused on construction sites and
companies but recognises the
valuable and vital contribution
made by those companies
supplying goods and materials
to construction sites across the
UK. They perform a vital role in
the construction process when
delivering materials to site and,
equally, they have a responsibility
to behave in a considerate manner
at all times to ensure they portray a
positive image of the industry they
represent.
The Scheme’s Code of Considerate
Practice applies equally well
to these suppliers as it does to
registered sites and companies,
but a new, bespoke Checklist
has been developed to better
reflect the specific nature of these
operations, particularly the element
of deliveries to and from sites.
The Scheme has already registered
a number of supplier companies
under Company Registration but
recent conversations with main
contractors and clients have led the
Scheme to looking more closely at
this sector to properly understand
their vital role in considerate
construction. With the option of
registering the construction site,
those who carry out work on them
and those who supply goods and
services, it ensures even more
companies in the construction
process are operating to the
highest of standards, and that the
impact of construction activity
across the project is minimised.
The Scheme hopes that suppliers
will see this as an ideal opportunity
to join sites and companies in
promoting their considerate
credentials and contributing
towards improving the image of
construction.
