Scheme launches new Milestone Awards
The Considerate Constructors Scheme has launched a new initiative aimed at recognising the number of sites that contractors and clients have registered since 1997.
The new Milestone Awards allow the Scheme to acknowledge the long-standing commitment contractors and clients have made towards improving the image of the industry. The awards demonstrate the support that those contractors and clients have shown for the Scheme since it began in 1997. Through supporting the Scheme and its aims, these contractors and clients are playing a pivotal role in driving the industry forward and setting the standard for others to follow.
Contractor and client Milestone Awards are celebrated at 100 and 500 registrations, and then at every 1000 registrations thereafter. The Scheme will regularly review the number of registrations made by contractors and clients and will contact those organisations that have reached one of the above milestones.

Commenting on the Milestone Awards, Scheme Chairman David Watson said:
The new Milestone Awards showcase the dedication of those contractors and clients that continually support the Scheme in its mission to improve the image of construction. Though registration with the Scheme is voluntary, it is heartening to see that so many companies proactively choose to register their sites in an effort to make the industry more considerate.
I would like to congratulate every contractor and client that has received a Milestone Award.
