The Considerate Constructors Scheme has been supporting and driving positive change in the construction industry for the past three decades. We believe the industry must be underpinned by high standards, external accountability and public trust for the benefit of all.
We have a Code of Considerate Practice which helps drive better conduct and higher standards across construction activities. The Code describes how construction teams which register their construction activity with us can operate more responsibly and respectfully. Using our practical and attainable guidelines, those running a construction site can make informed choices that help improve their standards and lessen their overall impact on the communities around them.
The Code focuses on three key areas:
Respecting the community
Caring for the environment
Valuing the workforce
These behaviours are key to improving the experience of construction for both the communities affected by works and the workforce delivering them, as well as lessening the impact of construction activities on the environment. Together they help to deliver meaningful impact that raises standards and achieves real results that build trust.
Through our dedicated Public Support team we provide a channel for anyone to contact us if they have concerns or feedback about construction activity, whether registered with the Scheme or not. Our Public Support team is here to liaise with constructors and suppliers on behalf of the public, and to help resolve issues where possible.
Clients of construction activity also engage with us to help raise industry standards and build trust by requiring their construction projects to register with the Scheme.
