Willmott Dixon is asking its top-tier supply chain partners to register with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).
All of Willmott Dixon’s Category A supply chain partners, are being encouraged to join its new Category A Plus programme and the company is keen that suppliers who do also register with the Scheme. The move is intended to ensure its main supply partners are dedicated to achieving the highest standards of considerate construction.
Membership means that the CCS can work with Willmott Dixon’s supply chain partners to encourage best practice in consideration to their workforce, the local environment and those communities impacted by their construction activities.
The initiative forms part of Willmott Dixon’s “Better Together” programme introduced earlier this year, where its largest suppliers move to the newly created Category A Plus standard as part of a strategy to work with fewer suppliers to strengthen relationships.
Steve Watson, National Supply Chain Director at Willmott Dixon said: “We believe that CCS is a truly unique scheme and something we have benefitted from hugely over the years. Introducing this to our supply chain was the next natural step in our journey. The Considerate Constructors Scheme will enable us to work with a like-minded supply chain that cares about the image of construction, the communities we work within and most importantly want to strive to become better in all that we do together.”
Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy commented: “We are pleased to see an ever-increasing number of Willmott Dixon’s supply chain partners register with the Scheme and enjoy the many benefits it brings in driving best practice throughout their organisation. Being a considerate constructor is about the entire supply chain; from the client to the principal contractor, subcontractors and beyond.”
