The Scheme believes that it is well
recognised and understood by
most medium to large contractors
who register longer duration sites
and that there is little to gain by
attempting to expand further in
that market. Where the Scheme has
so far not managed to gain a strong
foothold is with trade contractors,
the smallest contractors and SMEs
running shorter duration sites. The
Scheme has also begun registering
and monitoring suppliers to
construction sites and companies.
The collaborative working ‘Ultra
Sites’ initiative is seen as the best
way to promote registration to
trade contractors and suppliers
as to achieve this status the
main contractor of an ‘Ultra Site’
is required to ensure a large
proportion, if not all, of their trade-
contractors and suppliers for that
site are separately registered with
Experience has shown that
marketing directly to SMEs is not
particularly effective, and instead,
the Scheme will target the reasons
why SMEs will register – clients,
local authorities, trade bodies etc.
The Scheme will also continue
with its efforts to influence the
highest levels of the industry and
will become further involved with
the Construction 2025 Industrial
Strategy and will work at lobbying
the government to promote
registration with the Scheme.
