Supporting Our Members
We’re all united in a passion for our industry, but we’re also passionate about the people who make up this community. This is why through CIOB Assist we offer support on everything from financial concerns to mental health issues and training help.
Like most professional bodies, we believe it’s essential for members to keep up to date with the latest developments and knowledge in their field – it’s called Continuing Professional Development.

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has created a list of resources and industry advice, guidance and information on construction-specific issues
As a professional body that represents the leaders and managers who work at every stage of the lifecycle of a construction project, we seek to influence government, industry and other stakeholders around the world with the aim of promoting the construction management discipline and addressing the challenges that the sector faces.
The business case for increasing diversity and inclusion in the construction industry could not be clearer. What we build should meet the needs of society. That is hard to achieve if we are not sufficiently diverse and, as an industry, do not reflect society.
