We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been awarded top marks in our recent Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) re-assessment which took place in June 2022.

Rayden Engineering Ltd has been a proud member of the CCS for the past 5 years, company ID2288 – a scheme championed by our H&S, Manager Andrew Parsons.

As part of the renewal process, we’re  audited annually against the CCS Code of Considerate Practice. And we’re proud to say that we passed our re-assessment with flying colours and are a CCS certified organisation for another 12 months.  


The CCS is an independent, Not-for-Profit organisation created by the Construction Industry to help improve its image and raise standards.

Founded in 1997, the initiative is solely financed by its members. It operates a voluntary Code of Considerate Practice, which participating companies, their construction sites, and suppliers can register with.

CCS is nationally recognised and recommended by Local Authorities, the Government, main Contractors, and major Industry Clients.

Members sign up voluntary and commit to abide by the schemes Code of Considerate Practice. This promotes respect, care and value of the local community, environment, and workers. And it’s designed to encourage the adoption of best practices to achieve this.

CCS focuses as these three key areas to define expectations, as follows:

CCS CommunityRespect the Community

Constructors must manage their impact on their neighbours and the public to support a positive experience.

CCS Environment logoCare for the Environment

Constructors must minimise their impact and enhance the natural environment.

CCS workforce logoValue the Workforce

Constructors must create a supportive, inclusive, and healthy workplace.

Our audit was completed at company head offices in Ilkeston on 26th June by Scheme Monitor, Mark Homer, who re-assessed us against a newly updated CCS Code of Considerate Practice (as briefly outlined above).

The code had been updated for 2022 and simplified to focus on 3 key areas rather than 5 previously. And we’re very pleased to say that we achieved top marks across all areas – community, environment, and workforce.

We scored a total of 37 out of 50 which classifies our overall performance as Very Good / Excellent and well within the top percentile of other UK construction companies.

We also received positive feedback from our Scheme Manager commending our policy of (where possible) recruiting locally and our close links with Derby College and the community.

“I’m delighted that we have improved on last year’s score and are demonstrating continual improvements.

We’re fully committed to being a CCS registered organisation, it’s a fantastic scheme which we wholeheartedly support. That's why we've embedded it across the whole business so it forms an important part of our Integrated Management Systems, HR, H&S and CSR strategy.”


Not one to rest on our laurels, we’re already working on trying to better our score for next year’s assessment and are aiming for a higher ranking of Excellent/Outstanding.

In preparation, the team have already enrolled on the CCS Best Practice Hub which offers a wealth of invaluable resources, advice, and e-learning modules to help us get over that final hurdle.
