‘Image of Construction’ taking place on 11th September in central London, is designed for anyone in the construction industry who would like to learn more about best practice in considerate construction.
The free event will allow visitors the opportunity to attend practical workshops and presentations for guidance on how to raise standards both on and off site and meet representatives from a range of external organisations specialising in key industry issues.
Topics being covered include: tackling illegal working and modern slavery in construction; improving mental health; recruiting the next generation; and reducing the environmental impact of air pollution.
Now in its sixth year, the Image of Construction event is run by the Considerate Construction Scheme (CCS), a non-profit-making, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image.
The organisation believes that everyone involved in construction has an important role and responsibility to be a better, more considerate organisation for the benefit of their workforce, the local community and environment.
Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “The Scheme is very proud to announce the sixth Image of Construction event. This is an essential event for anyone involved and committed to improving their performance in considerate construction and the image and reputation of our industry. Attendees are provided with an exclusive opportunity to meet external organisations who can help them to improve their performance in being a considerate constructor and work to even higher standards; this applies to every organisation involved whether a contractor, sub-contractor, supplier, professional or client.”
Commenting about CITB’s Headline Partnership of Image of Construction, CITB’s Industry Relations Director Mark Noonan said: “Improving the image of British construction is a vital step to attracting the talent we need in years to come. That’s why we are proud to support the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Image of Construction event, which does so much to spread knowledge and understanding of considerate construction to raise standards and demonstrate what an exciting sector this is.”
