The Scheme helps us to focus

on any project’s impact on the

surrounding area and reinforces

our approach to how we interact

with passers-by, local workers,

businesses and enterprise owners

around the project. Our sole

approach to all of our projects is to

‘leave behind only footprints’. This

Scheme aligns with our ethos.

Erith’s Managing Director

(Demolition) David Darsey

commented: “Valued schemes

such as the CCS provide a positive

benchmark for all organisations

within the sector to achieve.

It provides a platform to strive

towards continuous improvement

in all of our operations - a value

that is embedded into our own

philosophy. Achieving this standard

in our projects is important to us as

a progressive organisation and we

envisage this to continue for years

to come.”

Mr Styles said: “Through the

encouragement of the Considerate

Constructors Scheme, recognition

of innovation and setting

challenging goals set, we believe

the wider community has benefited

and will continue to benefit from

the increased awareness for safety,

welfare and the communities

we visit.

“The CCS’s

Best Practice Hub

is an

excellent and valuable new forum

and is a vast source of relevant

information for the industry.”
