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
