The majority of Construction professionals will work on historic buildings at some point during their career. In the UK alone, 50% of all construction works being undertaken at any one time will be on traditional buildings and this situation is emulated globally.


European Development

This group improves the Institute’s recognition in other parts of Europe.

We do this in a number of ways: through our membership of AEEBC (the European Association for Building Surveyors and Construction Experts); through liaison with other professional bodies in Europe; through contributing to consultations on new European legislation and regulations; and through our involvement with pan-European research projects.

Time Management

Back in 2008, the CIOB conducted a survey into how well the industry managed complex building projects. We analysed data from more than two thousand schemes and found that more than two-thirds were not completed in the time allowed. What was more, almost a fifth of these delayed projects were more than three months late.
