“Proud to be a member of the

Scheme” – Land Securities

Britain’s leading property developer

and investment company

registered its first site with the

Scheme in 1998 – a year after the

CCS was officially launched – and

has enjoyed a close relationship

with the Scheme ever since,

becoming a Client Partner over five

years ago.

Client Partners are companies or

organisations which make an on-

going commitment to improve the

image of the construction industry

by encouraging all of their main

contractors to register with the

Scheme.

Earning itself an impressive

industry pedigree, Land Securities

owns and manages over 24 million

square feet of property from

shopping centres to offices, valued

in excess of £11.8 billion.

member of the Considerate

Constructors Scheme and believe

it is our responsibility as a Client to

set the tone of the project from the

very start by signing up.

“In fact, we make registration a

tender requirement for contractors,

so you’ll always see the badge and

posters on hoardings around our

developments.”

Land Securities has registered over

130 sites with the Scheme since

1998, pledging for 16 years to help

improve the image of construction

by abiding by the Scheme’s Code of

Considerate Practice.

One Land Securities’ project

which excelled in considerate

construction was the triple Gold

Award-winning site, The Elements,

a brand new shopping precinct and

multi-storey car park in Livingston,

West Lothian, Scotland, with works

undertaken by contractor Miller

Construction (UK) Ltd.

Praising the development’s

considerate credentials, Scheme

Monitor Ian Lawrie said: “It would

be difficult to consider any further

ways that a site could be more

neighbourly and generous to the

community.

“Relationships with neighbours,

local businesses, schools, colleges

and the general public are
