The Considerate Constructors Scheme is the national initiative, set up by the construction industry to improve its image. Any work that could be construed by the general public as ‘construction’ can be registered with the Scheme, providing it has a duration longer than six weeks.
When monitoring sites, the Scheme considers all those involved in the construction process, from the local authority and the client, to the operatives and delivery drivers. Sites that register with the Scheme are monitored against the eight point Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage performance beyond statutory requirements.
The three main areas that the Scheme’s Code covers are:
We will do all we can on site to reduce any negative effect we have on the environment. KierWSP will work in an environmentally conscious, sustainable manner.
Where we work is very important and has a massive impact on how we work. KierWSP strive to provide clean, appropriate facilities for all employees. Facilities should be comparable to any other working environment.
The general public
When we are working on site we will do all they can to reduce any negative impact we may have on the area in which they are working. We always aim to leave a positive impression on those that we are affecting by working c0onsideratley and leaving sites clean and tidy.
