SCHEME NEWS

In the morning of ITIOC, the

Scheme gathered together senior

industry representatives from its

58 Associate Members , 42 Client Partners

and

Company Partners

to

discuss how to further improve the

industry’s image.

The meeting was opened by

Scheme Chairman, Mike Petter, who

welcomed everyone to this unique

gathering, announcing the latest

Associate Members and Client

Partners.

Scheme Chief Executive Edward

Hardy then presented an overview

of current Scheme developments

and future plans, outlining how the

Scheme had received 88,226 Site

Registrations in total, with 8430

registering in the last year alone.

With regards to Company and

Scheme meets with its valued

Members and Partners

Supplier Registrations, there had

been 3090 Company Registrations

and re-registrations to date, and

22 Supplier Registrations since

its inception in 2014. Edward

also highlighted various Scheme

activities during 2015 such as

the on-going success of the

Best Practice Hub, the proposed

Building Social Value review and

the Ultra Site trials.

Part of the meeting involved the

Scheme asking the delegates to

give feedback on a number of

its proposed developments and

initiatives by voting.

One of the questions asked the

group whether the Scheme should

cover one subject as a theme each

year from the Scheme’s Code,

rather than a number of different

topics.

The majority of respondents agreed

and this has been actioned by the

Scheme which is due to launch an

annual theme in 2017, starting with

Construction’s First Impressions

– an in depth exploration of

appearance.

Another suggestion which received

overwhelming support was the

Scheme’s proposed ‘Unsung

Heroes’ initiative and this will be

implemented in 2016 to recognise

the dedication and consideration of

exceptional individuals at ground

level in construction.

Another highly-rated Scheme

initiative was its Beacon Sites

concept which will enable

exceptionally considerate sites to

throw open their doors for others

in the industry to see their high-

scoring practices first hand.

Voters also supported the Scheme’s

Building Social Value service which

provides registered sites and

companies with a report detailing

their social value credentials to

share with the public and clients.

Commenting on this unique event,

Edward Hardy said: “This meeting

was a golden opportunity for us

to move the industry forward

and discuss how we can improve

its image in partnership with the

leading lights of the construction

industry.”
