This voluntary scheme was launched in 1997. The scheme aims to improve the image of construction with its Code of Considerate Practice. As members of the CCS, we recently underwent a Performance Compliance Assessment. As a result,  our sports pitch construction, health and safety, community engagement and environmental practices are rated “very good” to “excellent”.
