The winners of this years Considerate Constructors scheme 2016 are soon to be announced, with top performing registered companies and suppliers ready to celebrate success at this years event.

Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the scheme and agree to abide by the code of practice, which includes caring about appearance, respecting the community, protecting the environment, ensuring safety and valuing the workforce.

Around 900 companies and suppliers have registered for the scheme in the last 12 months. Supplier Registration was introduced in 2014 and this year’s awards mark the first year that suppliers will be eligible to win a National Award.

The Scheme will be hosting the 2016 National Awards on 10th and 11th November, at the Four Seasons hotel on Park Lane.

Richard Beresford, Chief Executive of the National Federation of Builders, and Liz Male, Chairman of TrustMark will be announcing 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.

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.”
