This page is intended to offer support and guidance to all registered sites, companies and suppliers, to help them adhere to the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme has developed a new online resource hosting a wealth of best practice tips, expertise, guidance and case studies to help constructors raise industry standards.
Created in accordance with the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice, this unique database, available to anyone and free of charge, will detail best practice initiatives either already in place or currently being developed throughout the UK construction industry.
The Scheme has produced a number of resources and materials which offer guidance to companies in documenting procedures or plans which help to demonstrate to others that you are a considerate constructor. They can be downloaded and edited to suit your needs along with adding your company’s branding to keep for your records.
Please note that the documents are to be used as a guide only and do not cover all laws and regulations with which a contractor has to comply with under legislation.
The Scheme’s Monitors’ Checklist is used by the Scheme’s Monitors to assess the performance of registered sites, companies and suppliers against the Code of Considerate Practice.
