Working for a number of prestigious clients on some of London’s most high profile projects, the McGee team is celebrating a hat trick of high scores in their latest Considerate Constructor Scheme (CCS) audits.
One of the many benefits of registering with the Scheme is being able to benchmark your considerate performance against others in the industry. Average scores on UK sites currently stand at around 35.
McGee is pleased to report that they are well and truly above average, having recently scored a total of 43 out of a possible of 50 for their sites at One Nine Elms, 20 Grosvenor Square and 7-10 Hanover Square.
The sites were judged to be operating at very high standards, taking measures well in excess of minimum compliance. The audit included recognition for industry innovation in both Health & Safety and Environmental categories.
McGee is proud of its reputation, ensuring that all works are carried out to the highest standard in safety, with as little disruption to the public and as little harm to the environment as possible; whilst also engaging with the local community with positive initiatives such as Cycle Safety events.
Commenting on the scores, McGee’s Director of Health, Safety and Environmental Services, John Hennessy, said: “We are committed to changing the perceptions of our industry and to receive these results is in acknowledgement of the efforts from everyone involved. It is testament to our proactive approach to Community Liaison and industry innovation that our efforts are being recognised by such a prestigious national scheme.”
The CCS Scheme is widely recognised within the construction industry. It encourages contractors working in the City of London to carry out their work in a safe and considerate manner.
McGee is striving to maintain these scores and hopes to achieve the same, or better, results on follow-up audits in the New Year.
