More Client Partners for CCS
In response to strongly growing interest from across the UK, the Considerate Constructors Scheme is increasing the number of companies who are able to join its Client Partnership group. This group is comprised of organisations that commission construction work and want to help develop understanding of the Scheme from the client’s perspective. Currently there are 11 members of the group. The involvement of clients in shaping the Scheme’s development has proved extremely positive since its introduction in 2007 and the Scheme is keen to build on this success.
The core group of original Client Partners will now be known as “Founder Client Partners”. They will work closely with the Scheme to build further links between the Scheme and industry clients with particular reference to developing information routes and materials aimed at the client sector. New members will enjoy involvement through a schedule of lunches, seminars and other events.
Businesses or organisations interested in becoming Client Partners must ensure that all the construction work that they control is registered with the Scheme and that they have a senior representative available as a contact. They must also ensure that all registered sites must achieve compliance with the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice. There is no fee currently charged for membership.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme continues to expand and has already received record numbers of registrations for the first quarter of 2010, showing an increase of 30% over 2009.
