The construction industry has a huge impact on all our lives, with many construction sites in prime locations. If all sites presented an image of competent management, efficiency, awareness of local environmental issues and above all neighbourliness, then each one of them would promote the whole construction industry as caring and responsible. Every site would become a positive advertisement for the industry.
The Considerate Constructor Scheme, started in 1997, is a voluntary Code of Considerate Practice, which is adopted by participating construction companies, and everyone involved on the construction site.
The Scheme is a non profit making independent organisation founded by the industry to improve its image. The Scheme is neither grant maintained nor funded by the government and is solely financed by its registrations.
The Code commits those contractors in the Scheme to be Considerate and Good Neighbours, as well as Clean, Respectful, Safe, Environmentally conscious, Responsible and Accountable. The Scheme covers all construction activity within the UK.
Many construction companies and clients automatically register all their sites. The Scheme is open to construction companies of all types and size and for every type of construction activity.
