CIOB and Build UK collaborate to help make 'bigger difference'
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has become the first professional body member to join Build UK and together the duo hope to "drive change across the industry.”
Build UK was created to provide a strong collective voice for the construction supply chain and its continued fast paced growth demonstrates how the industry is coalescing around an agreed agenda and speaking collectively.
By joining the commercial trade association, CIOB demonstrates that it is possible to deliver a joined-up industry which speaks with one voice and together can increase the influence of the industry.
By putting aside vested interests and collaborating, the industry can rise to the Government’s challenge for joined-up sectors to develop ‘sector plans’ as part of the Industrial Strategy, and tackle the opportunities and challenges brought by Brexit for the benefit of the construction supply chain.
Build UK chief executive Suzannah Nichol MBE said:“We are all behind the goal of delivering new homes, new infrastructure and more public and private buildings and we each have a role to play creating a successful Construction sector. By joining Build UK, CIOB demonstrates its forward thinking commitment to a better industry, and by working together we can really drive change across the industry.”
Chris Blythe OBE, chief executive of the CIOB, said: “We are delighted to add our voice and expertise to the Build UK chorus. The industry is at its best when it collaborates and that is something we need to reflect when we talk to government and clients.
"Our public benefit agenda and ambition to create a safer, more professional and rewarding career for those who join construction is sentiment shared by Build UK and together we can make an even bigger difference.”
