September 2015

Issue 38

Leading housebuilding and construction group Galliford Try has spoken of the many

benefits of registering its projects with the Scheme for over 16 years.

The FTSE-250 indexed firm

registered its first project with

the Scheme in September 1999

and has now surpassed its 1000th

registration, notching up 1047

considerate sites to date.

Galliford Try cemented its

partnership with the Scheme by

becoming an Associate Member

in June 2007, in recognition of its

large number of high performing

registrations, and its desire to help

the Scheme achieve its aim.

Commenting on the benefits

of registering with the Scheme,

Galliford Try’s UK Information

Manager Sarah Cowell said: “It has

been an informed and positive

experience that promotes best

practice, and enables company

representatives to engage and

discuss industry performance with

healthy competition.

“Galliford Try is committed to

continuous improvement and will

utilise industry-led affiliations that

enable them to achieve business

continuity and progress.

“The Considerate Constructors

Scheme provides a guidance which

is assisted with the implementation

of our own core strategies and in

line with government legislation.”

She added: “The attainment of

good scores enables us to achieve

regulatory objectives with BREEAM

and the like. Our client base values

our commitment to the CCS Code

of Considerate Practice and the

achievements we make through

measuring best practice.”

The Galliford Try group prides itself

on delivering industry-leading

performance in constructing a

sustainable future.

Its hybrid model of housebuilding

and construction businesses -

reinforced by its vast experience

and unmatched competencies

in regeneration, facilities

management and PPP investments,

- enables it to undertake the most

complex of projects.

Its 2014 Silver Award-winning

Blackwall Lane project in

Greenwich, London, comprising

of three sites including 71 flats,

commercial units, a further 51 flats,

five houses and 11 terraced houses,

was highly praised by the Scheme

Monitor, David Cowperthwaite.

He said: “The project team have

maintained the highest standards

with this project. External

appearance is excellent and

continues on site, which is well

organised.

“Community relations are

established with numerous events

already held and with more

planned. CCS is further promoted

to both workforce and public with

films and web links.”

He continued: “First class

environmental procedures in

place which are reinforced with

a Sustainability Route Map. Full

welfare facilities are established and

apprentice and work experience

opportunities implemented with

a new apprentice scheme and The

Academy website.”

Commenting on how registering

with the Scheme has benefited

Galliford Try, Sarah Cowell said: “The

Scheme helps us to structure our

core strategies and best practice

via the external measures the CCS

offers.

Our association with the

Scheme is an informed and

positive experience says
