Considerate constructor scheme
Barlow construction has been a member of the considerate constructor scheme since 2013. We wanted to improve the image of the construction industry that is visible to the general public. The construction industry is now innovative and new which is what we at Barlow Construction wanted to portray to out communities that we work in. We erect fencing to keep all site materials stored safely. We keep surrounding areas clean and tidy by providing litter pickers.
We help out communities by providing to local charities from cake sales contributing to help make our environment a safer place to live and work; all of these things make us a considerate constructor. We are monitored throughout the year to ensure we carry our our vision of considerate constructor, we do this by adhering to the schemes code of practice.
