Demand for collaboration sees

launch of Ultra Sites

The Considerate Constructors

Scheme - the national Scheme

which is designed to improve

the image of construction - has

launched Ultra Sites, a new level

of attainment to raise industry

standards and collaboration

amongst clients, contractors,

subcontractors and suppliers.

The concept of Ultra Sites was

developed in collaboration with

Canary Wharf Contractors Ltd,

which requested the Scheme to

help create better collaboration

across the industry. Ultra Sites

are currently being piloted by

a consortium of some of the

country’s leading construction

organisations comprising: Canary

Wharf Contractors Ltd; Galliford

Try Partnerships; Land Securities;

Mulalley; Rydon; and The Berkeley

Group Holdings plc.

The prestigious status of being

an Ultra Site is awarded to those

sites that take considerate

construction to the highest level.

This is achieved by stipulating

that a number of suppliers and

subcontractors engaged with a

site are also to be registered with

the Scheme - helping to further

extend the benefits of membership

for many suppliers that may not

typically register with the Scheme.

They are the sites which represent

the pinnacle of achievement in

exceeding the Scheme’s Code of

Considerate Practice. Ultra Sites

will receive regular monitoring

and must commit to operating at

the very highest standards across

the Scheme’s Code of Considerate

Practice.
