What We Do

We have a role in the management, leadership, education and development of our industry. For our members, guiding and educating them as they embark on their careers. For policymakers, defining the standards for all to meet. For the public, creating an environment they can live and work in safely, comfortably and confidently.

Our Royal Charter commits us to work in the public interest.

This means we campaign on the major issues, which today includes eradicating modern slavery from the industry, improving the quality of the built environment, ensuring the right skills, talent and behaviours are nurtured in construction, and that our environment is protected through more energy-efficient buildings and less-wasteful construction practices.

Our Influence

We work on many varied agendas and not solely in the interest of members, but crucially in the interest of the public. A core part of our remit is to advance knowledge, innovation and research within construction. That means we challenge the industry to be the best it can possibly be.
