The Considerate Constructors Scheme is now international, having launched its first registered site in Ireland.
The Scheme has welcomed its first contractor to register projects in Ireland – family owned John Sisk & Son – a member of the international construction company, SISK Group.
The first registered Irish site is located at The Exchange, which forms part of the International Financial Services Centre at the heart of Dublin’s financial district.
Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “The opportunity for contractors to now register sites in Ireland is a huge step forward for the Considerate Constructors Scheme. With over 18,000 monitoring visits to UK-based sites, companies, and suppliers every year, the Scheme is highly regarded across the construction industry as a central part of instigating positive long-lasting change, for the benefit of the workforce, local communities and the environment.
“We are delighted to now be able to provide monitoring and support services to Irish-based construction sites to help raise their standards beyond statutory requirements – pushing the bar of considerate construction to a new level in Ireland.”
