HSS Hire Group has become the first tool and equipment provider to register its depots with the Considerate Constructors Scheme, demonstrating their commitment to working to the very highest standards of best practice and to improving the image of construction.
HSS Hire has registered an initial six depots with the Scheme which are located at Heathrow, Park Royal, Tottenham, Old Kent Road, Mitcham and Beckton.
Historically, the Scheme has focussed on construction sites and construction companies but has widened its focus in recognition of the critical contribution made by those companies supplying goods and materials to construction sites across the UK. HSS has joined under this newly introduced ‘Supplier Registration’ initiative.
All registered sites, companies and suppliers agree to abide by the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice which commits those registered to care about their appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value their workforce.
HSS Hire is one of the largest providers of tool and equipment hire, related services, temporary power generation and powered access in the United Kingdom* and has been operating across the UK for more than 50 years, primarily focusing on the business to business market as well as the more publicly known trade market.
Commenting on HSS Hire’s registrations, Edward Hardy, Chief Executive of the Scheme said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome HSS Hire to the Scheme. Supplier Registration is an important step in our development as an organisation that is pushing for ever higher standards across the whole construction industry. HSS Hire provides a key service to the industry and their registrations demonstrate the importance that they place on working with the utmost care and consideration.”
HSS Hire Group provides tool and equipment hire and specialist services in the UK and Ireland through a nationwide network of over 250 locations.
Chris Davies, Chief Executive HSS Hire Group said: “The Considerate Constructors Scheme is an important initiative and we’re proud to be supporting our customers by becoming the first in our industry to register. We look forward to working together for many years to come.”
