Considerate Constructors Scheme

Our site in Ledbury is registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme which is a national initiative, set up by the construction industry to improve its image. Any work that could be construed by the general public as ‘construction’ can be registered with the Scheme. Sites and companies that register with the Scheme are monitored against an eight point Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage performance beyond statutory requirements. The Code consists of the following eight sections: Considerate, Environment, Appearance, Good Neighbour, Respectful, Safety, Responsible and Accountable. When monitoring, the Scheme considers all those involved in the construction process, from the local authority and the client, to the operatives and delivery drivers.

We have recently had our 1st inspection and are extremely pleased with the result achieving a score of 37.5 out of a possible 40 points. As can been seen in the table below - it is very difficult to achieve such high marks with our site being rated well within the top 10% of sites in the UK. 

Of course we wish to continue this through the duration of the project - so if there is anyway in which you think we can improve or have suggestions how we can get involved in the community please do not hesitate to get in touch.  Our site telephone number is 01531 633 917.

Project Update 1st March 2012

March see's the Phase 1 works nearing completion with the external works complete with the exception of a new tarmac topping to provide access. The hoarding will be altered at the start of April to allow access to what Ledbury residents may remember as the old entrance to the Doctors surgery. The lift installation will commence in the next couple of weeks. The internal fit out elements will progress over the month ready to handover to HCC mid-April.
