SCHEME ADVOCATES

“We are able to offset best

practice and high performance

against other objectives and

achieve recognition of beyond-

performance with awards.”

The company has demonstrated

its consistent commitment to

considerate construction by

scooping 71 CCS National Site

Awards during its association.

Sarah said that Galliford Try’s Award

successes had been as a result of

“commitment from our teams to

implement our core strategies and

deliver best practices throughout

our company and workforce

that aspire to leading industry

initiatives”.

Asked how the Scheme’s

Code of Considerate

Practice had a positive

impact on her company,

she explained: “Galliford

Try’s core strategies focus

on these categories and

utilize the CCS Code of

Considerate Practice as

an external measure to

ensure attainment of

best practice, as well as

beyond performance.

“The five-point Code

brings focus to our

activities and drives

innovation and team

initiatives to deliver

leading industry

standards.”

Outlining why Galliford Try

became an Associate Member in

2007, Sarah said: “Becoming an

Associate Member was a natural

progression for Galliford Try and

our commitment to best practice

and showcasing the strengths

and diversity of the company and

workforce to deliver our flagship

schemes.”

Asked if she would recommend the

Scheme to other organisations, she

said: “The industry would continue

to benefit with the registration of

the CCS and therefore we promote

and highlight the benefits of being

Associate Members.”

Commenting on Galliford Try’s

future partnership with the

Scheme, Sarah said that she hoped

for consistency of scoring across

all of the projects, as well as more

awards, industry-led initiatives and

participation with steering groups.

The Group employs around 4,000

staff and benefits from a strong

client base and integrated supply

chain, spanning both industries in

which it operates.
