Osborne: better than the average builder

Osborne achieved an above average score in the construction industry’s Considerate Constructor Scheme (CCS) for the 2013/14 period.

Achieving an average score for the Construction sector of 38.22, Osborne are excelling above the industry average of 35.24. The CCS monitors against a Code of Considerate Practice which encourages best practice beyond statutory requirements and looks to improve the image of the construction industry itself.

83% of Osborne’s projects achieved a score ‘Beyond Compliance’, which requires seven points out of ten in the five assessed sections: safety, appearance, community, environment, valuing the workforce.

Some of Osborne’s top performing projects include the current refurbishment of the Chichester Festival Theatre and the new student accommodation development, Mayflower Halls, for the University of Southampton, both of which scored an excellent 43 out of 50 points.

Andy Burrows, Business Improvement Manager for Osborne said: “We are delighted to have achieved this score. It is a clear reminder that we can always improve the way we work without losing focus of the environments and communities in which we work. The task ahead of us now is to continue to deliver this high standard of work to customers and clients alike.”
