About CIOB Our History
The Chartered Institute of Building is at the heart of a management career in construction.
We are the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership. We have a Royal Charter to promote the science and practice of building and construction for the benefit of society, and we’ve been doing that since 1834. Our members work worldwide in the development, conservation and improvement of the built environment.
We accredit university degrees, educational courses and training. Our professional and vocational qualifications are a mark of the highest levels of competence and professionalism, providing assurance to clients and other professionals procuring built assets.
From an informal group of Master Builders we’ve come a long way in the last 180 years
Because we are governed by a Royal Charter we have to do things in a certain way
We have a customer service standard that anyone who contacts us can expect
