New board to drive success of Considerate Constructors Scheme

The Considerate Constructors Scheme has appointed Mike Petter as its new Chairman with Angus Kennedy and Albert Ree joining the Board.

Mike Petter, who began his career at Geoffrey Osborne Ltd and was Managing Director for consultancy firm Five Dimensional Management Ltd, became a Scheme Director in July 2012 and Vice Chairman in 2013.

Mike takes over from David Watson, Chairman since 2012, who helped the Scheme introduce a number of new initiatives and celebrate many milestones including 70,000 Site Registrations and 100,000 Monitor visits. David also saw in the development and launch of the new Code and Checklist in 2013 and helped develop Supplier Registration in 2014.  

David Watson will remain on the board and continue to advise on the Scheme’s future direction for another year. 

Angus Kennedy, who has been monitoring for the Scheme since 2011, is a Chartered Builder. In 2007 Angus was appointed as Construction Director on the £150m Maxim Business Park in Lanarkshire, and continues to provide project management and consultancy services for the new park operators, and for a number of other clients.

Fellow new Board member Albert Ree has worked for Balfour Beatty for over 30 years joining initially as a Graduate Engineer. In 2000 Albert became Regional Director for Balfour Beatty Construction and in 2005 appointed to the Board of Balfour Beatty Construction Northern. In mid-2012, Albert accepted the leadership role for the Sustainability portfolio in the new Construction Services UK.

John Sayers steps down as Director but assumes the new position of Scheme Ambassador with the responsibility of representing the Scheme at industry functions and events.

Looking ahead to his new role as Chairman, Mike Petter comments: “I would like to thank David for his contribution over the last two years and I’m looking forward to continuing the Scheme’s success in my new role as Chairman. I would also like to thank John for his time as a Director and wish him luck as the new Scheme Ambassador. Albert and Angus joining the Board brings a wealth of experience which will only help strengthen the Scheme’s position and ensure that it remains the leading voice in improving considerate standards.”

Edward Hardy, Chief Executive of the Scheme, comments: “David has made an enormous contribution to the ongoing success and growth of the Scheme and we’re happy to see him remain on the Board for another year. I’d like to welcome Mike who brings his industry expertise to the position and I know the Board is looking forward to working with him to continue the successful development of the Scheme and its valuable work.”
