Considerate Constructors Scheme

The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) helps the construction industry to improve its image. We do this by supporting and encouraging the industry to raise its standards and to build trust across the communities impacted by its work.

Each year, thousands of construction sites sign-up with us. By doing so, they commit to our Code of Considerate Practice which focuses on three key areas: Respecting the community, Caring for the environment and Valuing the workforce. Our independent monitoring benchmarks how well these sites are performing in these areas.

Creating a healthy built environment for the communities impacted by construction activity, reducing the environmental impact of construction and the wellbeing of those working in the industry are a core part of our Code.

Clients of construction also work with us to improve the industry’s image, by requesting that their construction projects are signed-up to us.

We are also here for the public. Our dedicated Public Support team is here to assist anyone who has a concern or feedback about construction activity. The team liaise between contractors and the public towards finding a resolution to their concerns.

Find out more at and see which construction sites sign-up with us.
