THE Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) has announced it is expanding to offer professional service organisations the opportunity to register with the Scheme.
Eligible organisations providing professional services to the construction industry, such as architects, engineering consultancies, surveyors, accountants and lawyers, are now able to join the thousands of construction sites, companies, suppliers and clients of construction projects who register with the Scheme each year.
The CCS confirmed the development comes at the request of those already registered to ensure their entire supply chain is part of the Scheme.
Edward Hardy, chief executive of the CCS said, “We are delighted to welcome eligible professional service organisations to the Scheme. This is a significant development for our entire construction industry, as professional services form an integral part of the industry’s supply chain. The impact such organisations can have in becoming part of the Considerate Constructors Scheme to improve their standards will no doubt have a significant influence on improving the overall image of our industry.”
