How does being a CBC help my organisation?

Becoming a Chartered Building Company or Consultancy brings a multitude of benefits. As well as enhancing your reputation, adding to your brand and raising your profile, Chartered status sends out a strong signal to employees that they are valued and will be developed to their full potential. 

Win new business and enhance your existing client relationships

Clients are increasingly specifying MCIOB-qualified managers as a non negotiable component of project teams. Ensuring that your organisation has a significant number of Chartered members at board level, and a strong pipeline of emerging talent in your wider operations, boosts your chances of winning bids – or getting onto tender lists in the first place. By following the CIOB Code of Professional Conduct and Rules, you will be able to give clients confidence that you are committed to achieving the highest standards of professionalism and integrity in construction.

Raise your profile

We offer a 20% discount to CBCs advertising jobs in our in-house magazine, Construction Manager. This is your chance to raise your profile in front of our full international membership.

You will have access to free tendering and certificate of completion templates which can demonstrate professionalism and quality to your clients.

Enhance your image

Joining the CBC scheme gives you access to our marketing tool kit and permission to use the CBC logo on all correspondence, websites and site hoardings.

You’ll also get a plaque that you can put in your office and will be encouraged to use the strapline: Professionalism and Integrity in Construction.

Take a holistic approach to staff development

Become a CBC and we will introduce you to our Training Partnership scheme. This free, tailored service provides unique support for your long-term learning and development strategies, with the aim of helping all relevant employees become Chartered. See our Training Partnerships section for more information.

Join an elite directory

As a CBC, your organisation will be added to our prestigious electronic directory of Chartered Building Companies and Consultancies. Found on the CIOB main website, this is open to the public and is fully searchable. CIOB will soon be enhancing the site with more refined search tools, enabling clients to seek out companies by specialism as well as by geographical region.
