Construction Industry Guidance

The CIOB is working with the Construction Leadership Council, Build UK and others to provide a central resource for UK members with guidance on construction-specific issues. We are supporting the creation of a single point of contact for the industry through Build UK.

Covid-19 is impacting the global construction industry with projects facing supply chain issues, a halt to planning and inspection timetables, and new measures to ensure the health and safety of the workforce. New social distancing measures have come into focus as international governments enact their approaches to minimise the spread of the coronavirus. 

This is an unprecedented situation, impacting family life and businesses everywhere. As a membership organisation, there are actions we have already undertaken to support members and the wider industry. We have gathered this list of valuable resources to help our members and all industry professionals stay informed on the latest developments and official statements by professional bodies.

CIOB's Response

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is putting a number of measures in place in order to play our part in the efforts to support "social distancing" and help minimise the spread of the virus.
