Scheme Chairman Mike Petter

said: “The Scheme is delighted to

report that Supplier Registration

continues to go from strength

to strength since its launch last


“We are thrilled to have received

such a fantastic response from

our industry suppliers, all of

whom recognise the benefits of


“Registered suppliers gain

the prestige of belonging to

our nationally recognised and

respected Scheme, endorsed by

local authorities, the Government

and leading industry organisations.

“They also benefit from

independent company and site

assessments from our highly

experienced Monitors, giving them

an opportunity to benchmark their

performance as suppliers.”

The Scheme’s very first Supplier

UK’s largest supplier of modular

many more have followedWernick’s


Almost a year after signing up to

the Scheme, Wernick’s Lawrence

Higgins, Regional Director South,

has spoken of the value registration

with the Scheme has brought to his

ever-growing organisation.

Outlining the tangible benefits of

registration, Lawrence said: “It has

been a very positive experience,

both in understanding the CCS

criteria of ‘what good looks like’,

to what ambitions considerate

constructors should have, and what

improvements we could make to

our operation.

“There have been some really

positive improvements – eco-

awareness, cleanliness and the

importance of encouraging a

healthy workplace.”

recognise unique aspects of this

industry sector, especially in terms

of deliveries.

Now the entire operations within

any given site can be registered

with the Scheme, encouraging a

joined-up commitment to raising

industry standards throughout the

construction supply chain.

Other benefits of Supplier

Registration include receiving

Scheme branding and recognition,

company listing on the Scheme’s

website and gaining a competitive

edge with prospective clients.

The Scheme took this collaborative

approach one step further by

launching its Ultra Sites programme

earlier this year, encouraging

contractors and clients to support

the ultimate model of considerate


Ultra Sites were launched after the

Scheme’s long-term partner, Canary

Wharf Contractors Ltd, expressed

its desire to foster improved

collaboration across the industry.
