Terms of Client Partnership

Any company or organisation that acts as a construction industry client can be considered for Client Partnership with the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

Any company or organisation wishing to be considered should apply in writing. They may then be invited to become a Client Partner by the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Board.

No fees are payable to the Scheme by a Client Partner.

Once a company has been accepted as a Client Partner:

Client Partners will:

  • Ensure that all construction companies or projects for which they are responsible, or which fall within the remit of the Scheme, are registered with the Scheme.
  • Ensure all company employees are aware of the Client Partnership and what this means (it is recommended that key personnel attend either a Scheme Seminar or Workshop).
  • Include in all tender documents, or other documentation issued to contractors, the following wording:

‘Allow for Site or Company Registration with the Considerate Constructors Scheme, including the appropriate fee, and ensure compliance with the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice’.

  • Nominate a Board member, or another senior representative, to act as their contact for Client Partnership matters and to represent their company at Client Partners’ events.
  • Provide a link from their website to the Scheme’s website.
  • Ensure after one year of Client Partnership all sites registered, as a result of the Client Partner’s requirement, will achieve compliance and an overall average score of 32 or more points.
  • Consider all reasonable requests by a contractor to allow them to implement the Scheme.
  • Encourage membership of the Scheme’s ‘Company Registration’ initiative.

The Scheme will:

  • Publicise the Client Partner’s commitment to the Scheme.
  • Issue a Client Partnership logo for use on all marketing material and other company material.
  • Issue a Client Partnership certificate.
  • Invite Client Partners to a meeting/s.
