Kier Sheffield has received a certificate of compliance from the Considerate Constructors Scheme for the period of August 2012 to August 2013. This latest achievement is another endorsement for the housing element of the repairs service, which provides responsive repairs and maintenance to around 42,000 Council-owned homes.
This acknowledgement follows a number of Considerate Constructors Scheme achievements over the last 12 months.
Firstly there have been two Scheme assessments, the last of which saw full marks in two categories with an overall score of 37 points out of a possible 40 meaning the service was officially classed as ‘exceptionally good’. Secondly, Kier was praised as ‘exceptional’ and presented with two Bronze awards at the annual Considerate Constructors Scheme National Company Awards, which celebrate registered companies which have implemented the highest standards of consideration. Kier was the first company in the UK to register responsive repairs services for housing and corporate buildings and was awarded Bronze for each at this year’s ceremony.
Kier regional operations director, Phil Oades, said: “We are extremely proud to be presented with this certificate, which officially verifies that our responsive repairs team is exceptionally considerate and clearly sets the industry benchmark high for repairs and maintenance providers throughout the UK. This is testament to the hard work of every member of our team, who strive to provide the best possible repairs service every day.”
The aim of the Considerate Constructors Scheme is to improve the image of construction by assessing registered companies and sites in terms of their management, community impact, environmental awareness, health & safety, welfare of employees, and above all neighbourliness, becoming a positive advertisement for the industry and themselves.
