The Scheme is delighted that Vastint UK has become a valued Client Partner and in doing so pledging to deliver projects with considerate construction at their very core.

“We are excited to work with Vastint UK and are looking forward to sharing our expertise, experience and mutual ambition to improve the image of construction.

“Client Partners form an absolutely crucial part of helping to raise standards across the entire supply chain of construction and we look forward to other like-minded clients joining the Scheme and recognising the many benefits it brings.”

Michiel van Soest, Development Manager and Head of Projects at Vastint UK said; “At Vastint UK, we create large-scale urban developments which balance working, living and leisure activities; places designed to be characterful, connected into their history and local context, and most of all, thoughtfully designed from the inside out. We are delighted to become a Client Partner of the Considerate Constructors Scheme. We support the Scheme’s values and believe it is important to encourage all our contractors to strive to deliver best practice in all areas of their work.”

About the Considerate Constructors Scheme

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a not-for-profit, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image. Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice. The Code commits those registered with the Scheme to care about appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value their workforce. The Scheme monitors any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole.

Companies registered with the Scheme voluntarily agree to abide by its Code of Considerate Practice. Any company of any size can register, including trade contractors and those who work within the supply chain. Companies with a turnover of more than £3.5m and managing sites with a duration of over six weeks need to register separately under the Scheme’s Site Registration. Suppliers of goods and materials of all types and sizes, including large national suppliers, regional suppliers and specialist suppliers are able to register with the Scheme at any time.

The Scheme provides the Best Practice Hub, a comprehensive online resource showcasing best practice in the construction industry. The Best Practice Hub hosts a wealth of tips, expertise, guidance and case studies to help constructors learn from their peers and raise industry standards.

In 2018, the Scheme received the prestigious ‘Women in Construction’ Award for its national ‘Spotlight on…women’ in construction campaign.
