41 Tower Hill project team achieves an exemplary level of performance
The considerate constructor scheme (CCS) is a national initiative set up by the construction industry to raise standards in the construction industry. The code of considerate practice focuses on construction activities which impact the general public, workforce and the environment and requires those registered sites, companies and suppliers to show a commitment to care about appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value their workforce.
We are pleased to announce that the TypeTen project team at 41 Tower Hill received the maximum score of 45 following the monitoring visit assessment performance against the Considerate Constructor Scheme’s code of practice. This means that the site, company, and supply chain are all performing at the highest level in each of the five sections.
The CCS team monitors performance across five categories: Appearance, Community, Environment, Safety, and the Workforce. Comments in their monitoring reports include, “The site can be seen to be continuing to work to excellent standards when assessed with the Scheme Code of Considerate Practice and there is a commitment to work towards carbon zero construction”.
Further comments include:
- Community – excellent respect is shown for nearby business neighbours with quarterly updates produced. The site is tidy and well organised. There are opportunities for local labour and suppliers. The site is checking suppliers’ drivers and their vehicles in accordance with the CLOCS standard.
- Environment – There is a positive approach to sustainability with clear evidence for ensuring waste is reduced and recycled. Water and energy usage are monitored with measures placed to reduce water and energy consumption.
- Workforce – Fair treatment for all is ensured with the company equalities policy promoted. Training is strong and a safe environment is ensured. The support was shown for stress and mental health issues. Welfare facilities are to a very good standard with a robust cleaning regime.
