Considerate Constructors Scheme

Considerate Constructors Scheme

The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) aims to improve the image of construction by assessing and monitoring sites against a code of practice.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) is a national initiative established by the construction industry to improve its image by improving standards of neighbourliness. Sites registered with the scheme are independently assessed against a code of considerate practice, designed to encourage higher standards of conduct. All sites on the central section of Crossrail construction are required to register.

Crossrail contractors have again broken their record for awards received in the annual CCS National Site Awards. These recognise the best construction sites in the UK for excellent standards of consideration towards their neighbours, workforce and the environment. They are based on assessments made during 2014.

More than 9,000 sites across the UK were assessed for the scheme, with just two of these awarded the National Most Considerate Site runner up. The top one per cent receive Gold awards with others receiving Silver and Bronze awards

After four awards in 2012 and 11 in 2013, some 20 Crossrail sites received awards in 2014. In 2015 that total rose to 24.

The average score for Crossrail sites is 43 from a maximum of 50, compared with the industry average of 35. The overall performance of Crossrail sites is recognised by the level of award bestowed on them.
