Considerate Constructors Scheme expands to offer registration to professional services

The Considerate Constructors Scheme - the organisation established to improve the image of construction - has expanded to offer professional service organisations the opportunity to register with the Scheme.

Eligible organisations providing professional services to the construction industry, such as architects, engineering consultancies, surveyors, accountants and lawyers, are now able to join the 7,000 plus construction sites, companies, suppliers and clients of construction projects who register with the Scheme each year.

Professional services account for around 11% (£186 billion) of the UK’s Gross Value Added and employ around 13% (4.6 million) of the UK’s population.*

This exciting development comes at the request of those already registered with the Scheme to ensure their entire supply chain is part of the Scheme, as well as an increasing number of professional service organisations wishing to be part of the Scheme to help improve their standards in considerate construction.

Edward Hardy, Chief Executive of the Considerate Constructors Scheme said: “We are delighted to welcome eligible professional service organisations to the Scheme. This is a significant development for our entire construction industry, as professional services form an integral part of the industry’s supply chain.

“The impact such organisations can have in becoming part of the Considerate Constructors Scheme to improve their standards will no doubt have a significant influence on improving the overall image of our industry.”

About the Considerate Constructors Scheme
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a not for profit, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image.

Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice. The Code commits those registered with the Scheme to care about appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value their workforce.

The Scheme monitors any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole.

The Scheme provides the Best Practice Hub, a comprehensive online resource showcasing best practice in the construction industry. The Best Practice Hub hosts a wealth of tips, expertise, guidance and case studies to help constructors learn from their peers and raise industry standards.
