One of the UK’s largest housebuilding firms has been recognised for working to improve the image of the construction industry…
Housebuilding firm Bellway Homes has been recognised for its commitment to considerate construction.
The firm, which has been in business for over 70 years, reached a major milestone after hitting its 500th client registration with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).
The scheme is a non-profit, independent organisation founded to improve the image of the construction industry.
Construction sites, companies, and suppliers register voluntarily with the scheme, agreeing to follow the Code of Considerate Practice. This includes respecting the community, protecting the environment, and ensuring the safety and value of the workforce.
Bellway Homes was among the first housebuilders to register with the scheme in 1998. Since then the firm has won seven Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards.
CCS chief executive Edward Hardy said: “Bellway Homes’ milestone achievement exemplifies the commitment it has made towards improving the image of the industry.
“Housebuilding continues to be one of key construction priorities for the nation and the Scheme is delighted to see that Bellway is helping to drive the housebuilding industry forward by being a considerate constructor.”
Bellway Homes’ chief executive Ted Ayres also commented stating: “This milestone is a great accolade, and testament to the professionalism of our on-site teams.
“As one of the first housebuilders to register almost 20 years ago, we have been continually supportive of the Considerate Constructors Scheme and its mission to raise standards and improve the image of the construction industry.
“At Bellway, we strive to ensure that all our sites across the country operate in a safe, secure and respectful manner, with minimum impact on surrounding environments and communities.”
