Xtraspace are proud members of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, to enable us to promote best practice in the construction sector.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non- profit making, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image.
This is designed to "Safeguard " the client and is used to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.
Xtraspace believes its important to maintain our high level of standards so joined the CCS at the beginning of 2015. Since the scheme started in 1997 it has over 90,000 sites and ore than 1,000 companies have joined.
The 5 main aspects contractors are monitored on are:
- Respect of the Community
- Protection of the environment
- Securing Safety
- Value of their workforce and workmanship.
We believe this has brought us considerable benefits as we have a nationally recognised membership, we have gained a competitive edge with prospective clients by demonstrating a commitment to high standards. Xtraspace are listed on the schemes website for registered companies and suppliers. Our sites are independently assessed by experienced professionals who will advise and guide as well as benchmark performance and strive for development and improvement.
