At Whitescape, we are passionate about running our sites safely, smartly and with consideration for all. So we’re proud to receive our first Considerate Constructors award, recognising Performance Beyond Compliance at our Supported Living Project in Reading.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non-profit-making, independent organisation, founded in 1997 by the construction industry to enhance the image of building sites in general, and to improve their impact on the public, the workforce and the environment.

Construction sites, companies and suppliers who voluntarily register with the Scheme agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements. CCS monitors visit sites and give them scores for five key factors: caring about appearance, respecting the community, protecting the environment, securing everyone’s safety and valuing the workforce.

We’re delighted that Justin Lamport and his team at our Supported Living site in Reading scored 7 (very good) or above on each of these five factors, on the CCS Monitor’s last visit. This has earned us the Performance Beyond Compliance award, which we are really proud of.  A score of 5 indicates the basic level of compliance, so anything higher shows we’re ‘going the extra mile’.

This is a well recognised and respected scheme, very much in line with Whitescape’s own focus on doing things the right way for customers and other stakeholders. Congratulations to everyone on site – a great team effort.
