The Considerate Constructors Scheme is the national initiative set up by the construction industry to improve its image. Construction sites and companies that register with the Scheme are monitored against a Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.
The Scheme is concerned about any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment. The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a self-financing, independent organisation owned by the Construction Umbrella Bodies (Holdings) Ltd which is made up of CPA and the Construction Industry Council.
