The Considerate Constructors Scheme to host awards ceremony recognising the UK’s most considerate companies and suppliers of 2016
Considerate firms are set to be recognised in a ceremony later this month. The 2016 National Awards will be hosts at the Four Seasons hotel on 10-11 November and is the first year suppliers will be eligible to win a National Award.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme, which was founded in 1997 to aid the construction sector improve its image, registered some 900 companies and suppliers in the past year. The scheme allows firms to register voluntarily, after which they must then abide by a specific Code of Considerate Practice relating to respecting the community, protecting the environment, ensuring safety, and valuing the workforce.
Suppliers were able to register for the scheme for the first time in 2014 and this year is the first year they are eligible for the award.
Celebration of considerate practice
Considerate Constructors Scheme Executive Chairman Isabel Martinson said: “The Awards celebrate the phenomenal efforts being made to improve the image of the industry for the benefit of the public, the workforce and the environment.
“It is particularly exciting this year to be awarding, for the first time, the significant contribution that suppliers are making. As the industry knows, suppliers perform a vital role in the construction process, and have a significant responsibility to behave in a considerate manner at all times to ensure they portray a positive image of the industry they represent.”
Chief Executive of the National Federation of Builders Richard Beresford and, Chairman of TrustMark Liz Male will announce whether each winning company has received a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award for their achievements.
There will also be Runner-up Awards and winners for the coveted ‘Most Considerate Company’ and ‘Most Considerate Supplier’ Awards.
