The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN) is celebrating registering its 100th site with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).

NGN distributes gas to 2.7 million homes and businesses across the North East, Northern Cumbria and much of Yorkshire, to cities and towns including Newcastle, Darlington, Bradford, Leeds, Huddersfield, Hull, York and Carlisle. It also provides the region’s rapid response team when a smell of gas is reported.

Since 1999, the CCS has been rewarding the UK’s most considerate sites for the contribution they have made towards improving the image of construction.

It looks at the measures a site has put in place to be more considerate towards local neighbourhoods and the public, the workforce and the environment.

NGN Leeds, celebrates 100 registrations at their head office Leeds, Feb 24 2017.

Major Projects and Construction Services teams celebrate NGN’s 100th CCS site registration outside head office at Thorpe Park, Leeds.


NGN was the first UK gas distribution network to join the CCS, signing up its Major Projects and Construction Services teams three years ago.

Construction Services are responsible for the ongoing gas mains replacement programme, where ageing metal gas mains are replaced with new, more durable plastic pipes to ensure the safe continued and reliable supply of gas to customers for years to come.

All NGN projects scheduled to take more than six weeks to complete are registered with the CCS and NGN is now rolling out CCS principles to all its sites, including Emergency & Repair and Connections projects.

After winning 19 CCS National Site awards in 2016, including gold awards for gas holder sites in Stockton-on-Tees and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, NGN teams are aiming to add to that haul at the 2017 ceremonies later this month.

In the meantime, NGN has become a Client Partner of the Scheme, making a commitment to improving the image of the construction industry by recommending registration to all its sites.

Client Partners also encourage compliance with all aspects of the Scheme’s Code of Practice and are invited to share best practice at regular meetings with other Partners.

Dean Shepherdson, Head of Construction Services for NGN said: “Registering NGN’s 100th site is a real milestone for the business and testament to the hard work of our teams, who strive to make sure all our sites observe CCS best practice in terms of appearance, protecting the environment, safety, valuing the workforce and respect for neighbouring communities.

“As the first gas distribution network to sign up to the CCS, this achievement shows the commitment NGN has made towards ensuring our works have minimal impact on communities and that we’re delivering the best experience we can for our customers and our engineers.”

NGN is dedicated to maintaining its high standards on site, both for its customers and contractors. The company is constantly monitoring best practice and in doing so, regularly improving its processes and site efficiency.

Anyone that smells gas or suspects Carbon Monoxide should call the National Gas Emergency Service immediately on 0800 111 999. This line is in operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
