Collaboration and Innovation Working Group

The project team work across their project to hold regular meetings with the contractor, the client and the Project Directors of their most engaged trade contractors to discuss specifically the Considerate Constructors Scheme. Not only do they consider how they can implement innovations and best practice shared on the hub, but they also research and raise ideas for potential new innovations that go above and beyond industry standard, working together to put these in place.

Collaborating with the client ensures every effort is pursued to successfully implement these where they believe could have the most benefit. Representatives from each of the key CCS categories are in attendance to ensure the outputs of these meetings benefit the local community, the environment and the health & safety of the workforce.

They discuss how their trade contractors can take on new initiatives, use and trial new equipment and technology or take part in charitable and community activities, working together to achieve this. Additionally, they encourage the whole project team to report where they see innovations in their role, ensuring that they highlight innovative ways of working at all levels of the project.

Promoting the Scheme is particularly essential to them, they ensure case studies are written and photos are collected so that they can show the work they are doing and move forward to implement these changes on other projects, thus improving the wider industry. Not only is this done via social media and the Best Practice Hub but via their clients own magazine and the contractors website.
