Congratulations to the team at Kendal Flood Risk Management Scheme (FRMS), which has achieved an ‘excellent’ score in its recent Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) audit. The Considerate Constructors Scheme seeks to improve the image of the construction industry, by striving to promote and achieve best practice under its Code of Considerate Practice.
The Kendal team, led by Richard Birchall, senior project manager has successfully maintained their ‘excellent’ rating for two consecutive years. They have scored the maximum 15 marks in each key area, which betters their previous, already high scores. The team has worked hard throughout their second year of construction, finding new ways to engage with the community.
The CCS report read: “The project continues to operate at the highest level. In terms of CCS the current systems and initiatives already meet the expectations of revisions in the 2022 checklist at a high level.”
It continued: “Community contact and interaction has been extensive and impressive with many local groups identified and engaged with the project. There has been contact and visits from local schools and colleges with further planned for the future phases of the project.”
The CCS report is a testament to the work at Kendal, as they stated: “An excellent project and an excellent example of considerate practice in the construction industry.”
Mark Cronshaw, VolkerStevin framework director said: “An industry leading score yet again and an incredible achievement for the entire team to be proud of. It is a fantastic external endorsement, testament to the team’s care and enthusiasm.”
Mike Harper, Environment Agency project manager, was very complimentary of the hard work at Kendal and commented: “It’s fantastic to receive scores of 45/45 in both of the Considerate Constructors Scheme audits of the Kendal Flood Risk Management Scheme. The scores and accompanying comments from the independent auditor reflect the great work that I see day in day out from the team working on the project. The finished project will deliver significant benefit to the people of Kendal, and it is great that VolkerStevin are able to undertake the significant construction work in a sensitive way and with such care for the community.”
