The Federation of Archaeological Managers and Employers (FAME) is proud to announce that  we have become a supporter of the Considerate Constructors scheme. The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a not-for-profit, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its best practice. Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment.

Kenneth Aitchison, CEO of FAME said, “I’m delighted that FAME has become a Supporter of the Considerate Constructors Scheme. Archaeological remains are a record of past lives and environments, and investigating them through commercial archaeology has become an embedded part of the construction process. FAME members are committed to working in partnership with considerate constructors to explore, record and explain the past as it is revealed through the construction process”.
