Image of Construction, the national industry event hosted by the Scheme takes place annually in September.
Everyone involved in construction has a hugely important role and responsibility to be a better, more considerate organisation for the benefit of their workforce, the local community and environment – all of which are impacted by construction activity.
Organisations exhibiting in previous years include: BOHS, CALM, CITB, CLOCS, Construction Dust Partnership, Home Office, IOSH, LGBT Network, Mates in Mind, Prostate Cancer UK, SKCIN, The Lighthouse Club, The Prince’s Trust and WISE.
In 2018 the Scheme welcomed Headline Partner, CITB. The Scheme also offered a range of other partner and exhibitor opportunities for relevant organisations wishing to showcase their considerate credentials.
- Attend practical workshops and presentations for guidance on how to raise standards both on and off site.
- Meet representatives from a range of external organisations specialising in key industry issues such as: tackling illegal working and modern slavery in construction; improving mental health; recruiting the next generation; and reducing the environmental impact of air pollution.
- Gain valuable knowledge from senior Scheme Monitors to improve performance against the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice, achieve higher scores, win national awards and help win new work.
- Network with like-minded peers from across the construction industry.
Speaking about the 2018 event, Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said:
This year’s ‘Image of Construction’ event was the biggest ever. The event provides a unique opportunity for attendees to access and network with a range of external organisations as well as with senior Scheme Monitors, who provide invaluable advice, resources and guidance to help our industry raise standards even further.
On behalf of the Scheme, I would like to thank CITB, our Headline Partner, all exhibitors, presenters and attendees for making this the most successful event to date. The overwhelming response to this year’s ‘Image of Construction’ proves how it has become a must-attend for everyone involved in being a considerate constructor. We look forward to hosting next year’s event.
CITB’s Industry Relations Director Mark Noonan said:
Improving the image of British construction is a vital step to attracting the talent we need in years to come. That’s why we are proud to support the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Image of Construction event, which does so much to spread knowledge and understanding of considerate construction to raise standards and demonstrate what an exciting sector this is. I hope as many employers as possible make it along to the event to share best practice and make change happen.
