SureSet recognised as ‘Considerate Constructors’

SureSet are proud to announce that we have been recognised as Considerate Constructors by the much sought after Considerate Constructors Scheme.

For anyone looking for a potential contractor, this kite mark means that participating contractors must adhere to a certain code of conduct. Having this recognition as a company means that we are now part of a group of contractors who are considerate to the communities that we work within and mindful of the environmental aspects that we may encounter.

The aim of the scheme

To improve the image of construction.

The construction industry has a huge impact on all our lives, with most construction work taking place in sensitive locations. If all construction sites and companies presented an image of competent management, efficiency, awareness of environmental issues and above all neighbourliness, then they would become a positive advertisement, not just for themselves but for the industry as a whole.

What?

The Code of Considerate Practice commits those sites and companies registered with the Scheme to enhance their appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and care for the workforce.

Where?

Construction sites and companies operating within the UK can register with the Scheme.

Who?

The Scheme is open to construction companies and sites of all types and size and for every type of construction activity, with many construction companies and clients automatically registering all their work as company policy.

How?

Through the monitoring of registered sites and companies, and the displaying of posters around the construction site, promoting registration with the Scheme. If passers-by wish to comment, the name and telephone number of the site manager or company contact is clearly displayed, alongside the freephone telephone number of the Scheme’s administration office. Registered companies also display a vehicle sticker or magnet, showing their unique registration number, on every company vehicle used on the public highway.

SureSet are proud to be recognised as Considerate Constructors and look forward to helping to improve that image of the industry as a whole.
