The Considerate Constructors Scheme sponsors the prestigious Teambuild construction competition

The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) is delighted to be sponsoring Teambuild, the construction industry’s most hotly-contested training and development challenge, between 14th – 16th November.

Teambuild brings together 12 multidisciplinary teams who have passed a pre-qualification process, to compete in the simulation of the design and construction of a real site located at Eastbourne Terrace, Paddington, London W2. The teams work through five stages in their quest to become Teambuild winner of 2014. This involves a development brief, an outline design, a procurement strategy, a detailed design and finally the construction stage and completion. The competition final takes place at the Lane End Conference Centre in Buckinghamshire.

The Scheme will be awarding a prize to the team that demonstrates the best appreciation of the impacts on the wider community and the environment, as well as the level of care shown to the workforce on their project. This will be in addition to the overall Teambuild winner’s prize, the discretionary judge’s prize and other sponsor prizes.

The competition provides a chance for individuals and teams to test their skills and teamwork and also to network and learn from each other. The event attracts competitors from all disciplines working in leading companies in the construction industry.

The Scheme’s Ambassador and Monitor John Sayers is on the judging panel and is looking forward to the event:

“Construction is all about people, logistics, communication, delegation and ultimately teamwork to pull it all together. This event provides the ideal platform for candidates to test themselves to the limit in an environment that closely resembles the real world. The Considerate Constructors Scheme is thrilled to be involved with the competition and I’m looking forward to seeing some of the most skilful and talented young people in the industry working together.”

John continued:

“A challenge like Teambuild is an important event in the continued development and evolution of the construction industry in which the Scheme is playing a major part. As a representative of the Scheme, I’ll be looking out for candidates and teams that appreciate the wider community, relationship and public issues that exist on and around a construction project. I’m sure I won’t be disappointed.”

Alex MacLaren, Director of Education at the Teambuild Association commented:

“We’re delighted to welcome the Considerate Constructors Scheme as a Teambuild sponsor. They are doing a vitally important job working to improve the image of the construction industry and their involvement with the competition will ensure that the next generation of talented construction professionals appreciate the importance of considerate construction.”
