Latest CCS visit shows continued high standards
Horizon’s latest Considerate Constructor Scheme visit shows continued high standards with scores of very good/ excellent across the board.
The Considerate Constructor Scheme was established to raise standards in the construction industry. Registered companies are visited annually and monitored against a Code of Practice. An assessment is carried out of the company’s approach to five core principles - Care about Appearance, Respect the Community, Protect the Environment, Care about Safety, and Value their Workforce – both at the office and on site. Against each principle, Horizon scored 7/8 out of 9 (very good/ excellent) for both the virtual office visit and a site visit with an 8/9 (excellent/ exceptional) for ‘Care about Safety’ at the office visit.
The site assessment took place on an RG Group project, a Tesco store in Oxford, where Horizon is removing contaminated concrete slabs as part of a redevelopment. Feedback from Considerate Constructor Scheme stated: “This is a demanding project with work having to be carried within the operating Tesco store, access restrictions and being located on a main route into Oxford. The team have risen to these challenges, setting out the site in a very professional manner.”
Ben Ives, Managing Director, Horizon Environmental says: “We are committed to high standards in all areas of our business and are delighted to receive recognition of this in our assessments. Well done to the team in Kent and Oxford. We will take the feedback from the assessor’s report and look to improve our scores further for our next assessment.”
Another Horizon site will be assessed later this year before the company is given a final star rating for 2021. Following Horizon’s initial Considerate Constructor Scheme visit in July 2020, the company was rated four-star on a scale of one to five.
