The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) is an initiative that aims to improve the image of the construction industry.  The CCS commits those projects registered to enhance their appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and care for the workforce. More details can be found on their web site


Our own Sustainability Challenge endorses the five key areas of CCS and ensures all of our projects are working to the standards expected by the Considerate Contractors Scheme.
