Chartered Institute of Building

The CIOB has published its manifesto ahead of the Welsh general elections.

In advance of the Welsh general elections, The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has published its manifesto asks, addressing what it believes should be the key priorities for the future Welsh government and construction’s position as central to Wales’ economic recovery. 

The recommendations focus on three core themes: building quality and safety, education and skills, and net zero. The Institute is calling on the next Welsh Government to implement the findings of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety and increase its investment in construction in order to ensure safe, high-quality buildings, as well as supporting the development of degree-apprenticeships and commit to training construction technicians and professionals in the construction industry. 

The manifesto aligns with the Welsh Government’s ‘Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015’ to ensure that the recommendations help to improve Wales’ social, cultural, environmental and economic well-being.
