The Considerate Constructors Scheme has launched Ultra Sites, which sets a new level of industry standards and collaboration among clients, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers. 'Ultra Site' status is awarded to sites that take considerate construction to the highest level, by stipulating that a number of suppliers and subcontractors are also to be registered with the scheme (which is currently being piloted). Ultra Sites will receive regular monitoring and must commit to operating at the highest standards across the scheme's code of considerate practice.
