COMPANY REGISTRATION

Case study: Rydon

Rydon Group has a long-standing association with the Considerate Constructors Scheme

and is unique in being the Scheme’s very first registered company – proudly displaying the

registration number 0001!

PLEASE TELL US A BIT ABOUT

YOUR COMPANY AND SOME

OF THE PROJECTS YOU HAVE

WORKED ON.

Rydon’s Maintenance division

provides day-to-day repairs and

maintenance to thousands of local

authority-owned homes in and

around the London area, including

Islington, Canning Town and

Brockley. Over the years, we have

steadily become one of the largest

providers of maintenance services

for social housing PFI (Private

Finance Initiative) in London.

The company was first established

in 1978 and today employs over

600 people, working from a

number of locations throughout

the country. Rydon Group’s

operations are divided across

four companies, with Rydon

Maintenance, Rydon Construction

and Rydon Homes covering

general contracting, refurbishment,

regeneration, property

maintenance and residential and

commercial property development.

Ryhurst focuses on delivering

solutions to health and community

estates’ requirements and

challenges.

We were one of the founding

companies that helped to set up

the Considerate Constructors

Scheme’s Company Registration.

Realising there was an opportunity

to assess organisations that

typically worked on smaller scale,

smaller value and shorter duration

projects, we developed a six-month

pilot using one of our contracts

with the Scheme’s CEO, Edward

Hardy. The trial was a success and

Company Registration was rolled

out across the country; the rest as

they say was history! As a result

we are able to proudly display the

Company Registration ID 0001.
