    Supply Chain and Business Models.

    The aim
    of Ultra Sites is to achieve ever greater integration of a contractor’s supply
    chain to meet and exceed the Scheme’s Code
    of Considerate Practice. Being the highest level of attainment in consideration
    and best practice, they are the pinnacle of excellence across the construction
    industry.

    Considerate
    Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “Special congratulations
    to each award-winning Ultra Site and award-winning Supplier who have set the
    bar of considerate construction to an exceptional level. Congratulations also to
    each finalist, whose efforts in driving greater collaboration across their
    supply chain is commended.

    “Ultra
    Sites represent a real turning point for the construction industry, by
    providing a way for the industry to work more collaboratively and realise the
    benefits of this greater integration for their workforce, community and environment.
    The winners and finalists of these awards range from small scale local projects
    through to large scale regional multi billion pound projects. This clearly
    shows how the Ultra Site model can be embraced by any type of construction
    activity, no matter the size, scale or budget.

    “Thank
    you to everyone involved in making Ultra Sites such a success. We look forward
    to its continuing growth and development as the model to achieve greater
    standards in considerate construction throughout the supply chain.”
