Considerate Constructors Scheme
What is the scheme?
Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.
At 250 City Road we are committed to controlling our direct and indirect impacts throughout the course of our project. We do this by focusing on keeping our workforce and the public safe and well informed. We are also committed to ensuring that we have a minimal negative impact on the environment throughout the construction stage.
We do this by:
· Caring about our Appearance
· Respecting the Community
· Protecting the Environment
· Securing everyone's Safety
· Valuing our Workforce
The appearance of our site and the adjacent roads is important to us which is why we have a presentation team dedicated to ensuring that these areas are kept clean. All vehicles exiting site are wheel washed to ensure that minimal amounts of debris are taken out onto the road.
We respect our community by keeping them informed and up to date with current site activities. We operate an open door policy whereby you can come into our office and talk to us about any concerns you may have.
We protect the environment by ensuring that we monitor the use of electricity and water. We have installed Low energy lighting around our welfare compound and along our hoarding. We are always looking for new carbon offsetting initiatives to implement on site and encourage our workforce to use sustainable modes of transport.
We secure everyone's safety by making sure that our site is locked and secured overnight. We have security 24/7 who can be contacted should you wish to report any suspicious behaviour in or around our site.
We value our workforce and are committed to doing everything we can to send everyone home safe every day. We do this by promoting strict health & safety rules, providing free health check-ups and hosting awareness days which inform people about occupational health risks.
Last year our site achieved a score of 45/50 from the Considerate Constructors Scheme and we are only aiming to improve on this this year.
