Started in 1997, the Considerate Constructors Scheme was set up by the construction industry to improve its image.

The Scheme is a non-profit-making, independent organisation founded by the industry, recommended by local authorities, the government, main contractors and major industry clients.

Every year thousands of sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and are monitored against the Code of Considerate Practice, which has been instrumental in many of the improvements enjoyed today.

More information about the Scheme can be found on its website, www.ccscheme.org.uk
