The Considerate Constructors Scheme has launched the Construction Map to offer a single point of reference for construction activity across the UK and Ireland.
This easy to use portal provides, for the first time, anyone – whether a member of the Public, future employees, or someone already within the industry – a unique opportunity to see what is happening in the construction industry.
The Map shows thousands of ‘map pins’ which provide visitors with the ability to:
- Identify location, project name, client name and site contact details of all Scheme-Registered Sites, Ultra Sites, Companies and Suppliers.
- View details of Scheme Partners, Scheme Supporters, Professional Partners, Events and National Award winners.
- Search for Universities and other educational institutions offering construction-related courses.
Visitors to the Construction Map can search by postcode or by keyword. When the results are presented, they can simply click on pins to find out more about that project or organisation, and also see what is happening near to where they live and work.
In time, the Map will be developed to show industry training locations and industry activities – such as Open Doors and CITB events – as well as the opportunity to be able to interact with those listed and to get updates and feedback on construction activity in the UK and Ireland.
The Construction Map is also planned to be used by the construction industry to display jobs and apprenticeship opportunities, provide contact and website details on a particular project and promote success through Considerate Constructors Scheme National Award logos and Scheme star ratings. In addition, there will also be the opportunity for sites and companies to update their details directly to give up to date information about what they are doing.
