2011 Media Lunch

The 8th annual Media Lunch took place on 8th February at the Ivy restaurant in London, where members of the press joined the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Directors and management to discuss the Scheme’s progress.

At the lunch, the Scheme’s Chairman, Robert Biggs, told the gathered journalists about Scheme developments during 2010 – including the unexpected 20% increase in site registrations resulting in the Scheme’s best ever year and the recent registration of the 50,000th site.

John Spanswick, Chairman of Bovis Lend Lease, then spoke about the links between the Scheme and the construction industry. He talked about how the CCS has positively influenced the industry over the past 13 years and how this gradual progression will hopefully see the end to the notorious ‘Cowboy Builders’ who create the most damage as to how the industry is perceived by the general public.

All those who attended received press information about the upcoming 2011 National Site Awards as well as details of the new Site Code of Considerate Practice for 2011 and the revised Site Registration Monitors’ Checklist which were both introduced earlier this year.
