LATEST CONSIDERATE CONSTRUCTORS SCHEME AUDIT

2021-02-22T11:55:20+00:00

A new year and the first audit of the year. We had a site audit by video conference with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS). This was a new experience but seemed to work pretty well.

An interesting report from the Green Alliance, 'Getting The Building Blocks Right - Infrastructure priorities for a green recovery'  was published this month. Clearly, the intercession of COVID19 has had an impact on Government plans for addressing infrastructure plans to support Net Zero, but hopefully, now that a vaccine is now a realistic prospect, this is a good time to talk [...]
