Considerate Constructors Scheme – the scores are in!

Following our Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) assessment last week, we are delighted to announce that we have scored 44 out of 50. This is two points higher than last year and equates to 4.5 stars out of 5.

The overall score is based on the performance of our registered sites across the network.

We scored ‘exceptional’ in a number of categories, including Appearance, Community, Safety and Workforce. This truly demonstrates our dedication as a business to being a considerate constructor.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the CCS audits throughout the year and we should all be proud of this excellent score.
