The Considerate Constructors Scheme last week launched its new company registration initiative, which will allow construction companies and not just their sites, to sign up to the organisation’s national scheme.
Company registration provides a new alternative to the site registration option, which it has been running for 11 years. Site registration only permits registration on a site by site basis and can only accommodate sites lasting longer than six weeks.
Company Registration will now allow construction industry companies with an annual turnover of up to £2.5M to register, with registration covering all their sites and can also be used by companies with an annual turnover of over £2.5M to cover their sites with a duration less than six weeks.
Considerate Constructors Scheme chief executive Edward Hardy said: “With company registration now in place, any type and size of construction activity in the UK can sign up to the nationally recognised Considerate Constructors Scheme and benefit from all the advantages that registration brings. We look forward to welcoming a whole new raft of construction companies to the scheme.
Scheme monitors will visit both the companies’ offices and sites and will provide advice on how companies can improve, as well as writing a report on the company and its sites. Registered firms will also appear on a searchable database on the scheme’s website and awards will be given to the highest performing.
