Considerate Constructors Scheme
Galliford Try has imbedded the six principle pillars of sustainability into our strategic business plan. We have formed a sustainability route map from these pillars and data recorded from our KPI’s to implement bench marks from 2013 as a base line. We have incorporated the government’s legislation along with GT data and we have created a timeline to 2025. This route map outlines our bench marks from essential KPI’s, a transparent view for where the company is heading and needs to be to achieve its calculated targets. These six pillars Health & Safety, Our People, Customers, Environment & Climate Change, Community and Supply chain all feature heavily in the CCS Code. The pillars are our fundamental drivers that achieve all round continued success and they also form the very virtues that comply with the CCS code and checklist.
As an Associate Member of the CCS, Galliford Try must register all of its sites that are over a 6 week programme as part of the CCS T&C’s at pre-demolition stage. To ensure we support our project teams and comply with the CCS code we have structured a working champions group built up of members of staff from around the GT divisions. The champions are made up of Skills and training coordinators, public liaison officers, contract managers, management trainees, sustainability managers and assistant site managers, all of whom have an invested interest in the wider delivery of our projects. When brought together they provide an array of skill sets and these skills complemented with our project teams deliver projects in the most sustainable and economical way.
Sustainability is broken up into three criteria; Economic, Social and Environmental, a term ‘Triple Bottom Line’ is often used when referring to the core values of sustainability. Galliford Try’s six pillars are divisions of the ‘Triple Bottom Line’. In business, we measure these divisions to establish feasibilities and set targets against baselines obtained from our KPI’s. These indicators are essential to business performance and future progression and profitability. Throughout the duration of the project we work to deliver a site specific CCS action plan which will be adjusted during the course of the project as we reach our targets and progress. The CCS code of best practice gives us guidance but the real core achievements are the innovations and initiatives the project teams produce.
Community involvement and engagement from festival street parties to local employment, work experience, charity and volunteering days, education with demonstrations, presentations and career talks, we look to engage everyone including hard to reach groups, long term unemployed, youngsters and special needs. We are an equal opportunities employer and accredited with Disability Confident Employer Status.
