Lancelot House Receives a High Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) Score
Rigby & Rigby is proud to announce that we have been awarded an Excellent first score with the Considerate Constructors Scheme for our special project ‘Lancelot House’ located on Lancelot Place in Knightsbridge. The 17,000 sq. ft mansion features six bedrooms, two apartments, a double-height swimming pool, spa, cinema, parking for nine cars via two car stacking mechanisms, a roof terrace and a courtyard garden.
Demolition works have now been completed and as the project is located a short distance from Harrods with residential neighbours nearby, we acknowledged the importance of abiding by the Code of Considerate Practise during this time and for the length of project. Our overall score was 41/50, an excellent score, which can be visualised with a 4.5-star rating on-site. An excerpt from the Executive Summary of our score report states:
“The presentation of the site was to an excellent standard and it projects a positive image of the industry. Regular cleaning of external areas is undertaken and the floral decoration on the hoardings during the Chelsea Flower Show was well received by local residents [see news piece here].”
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non-profit-making, 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, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements. It looks across any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry overall. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the public, the workforce and the environment.
Any site, company or supplier that registers with the Scheme makes a commitment to meet the minimum requirements of the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice. To establish compliance, and recognise performance beyond compliance, Scheme Monitors visit sites, offices, depots and individual work areas, and use Checklists to confirm a score against each of the five Code headings – Appearance, Community, Environment, Safety and Workforce. Each section of the Checklist is scored out of 9 points, with a score of 5 indicating compliance.
Rigby & Rigby’s scores were received as follows:
- Care about Appearance: 9/9
- Respect the Community: 8/9
- Protect the Environment: 8/9
- Secure everyone’s Safety: 8/9
- Value their Workforce: 8/9
Leroy Smith, Project Manager at Rigby & Rigby, who looks after the project comments,
“Thanks to everyone involved for helping to achieve this excellent fist score. Although a high score to be proud of, we are now looking at ways to be more innovative onsite within the project. The team has worked hard to achieve this accreditation with CCS and it is a testament to them.”
