“Exceptional level of respect is shown to the community” at Dartford

Dartford Depot welcomed monitor Diana from the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) at the end of January to assess five key performance areas: Appearance, Community, Environment, Safety and Workforce.

In this CCS third visit, Diana was pleased to announce that “it is great to see this project performing to such a high standard” with continued performance levels of two ‘excellent’ and three ‘exceptional’.

It was also noted that the “arrangements in place to secure everyone’s safety are exceptional”  along with our “appearance of being an excellent standard, with a very positive first impression created, and an exceptional level of respect is shown to the community”.

Well done to Matt and all the team at Dartford for maintaining our CCS standards.
