CIOB welcomes 'Roadmap to Recovery' for the construction industry
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has today welcomed publication of the ‘Roadmap to Recovery’ plan by the Construction Leadership Council (CLC). The plan outlines a series of proposals aimed at safeguarding construction businesses and calls for the construction industry to reinvent itself and work in more collaborative ways as it rebuilds.
The CLC, which works between industry and government to identify and deliver actions supporting UK construction in building greater efficiency, has published its plan in three phases: Restart, Reset, Reinvent. The CLC’s ‘COVID-19 Taskforce’ has created the two-year plan to boost productivity and ensure a steady future workload for all parts of the sector. The CLC is currently engaging with government on how to enact these plans.
CIOB works closely with the Council, and many of the other organisations behind the plan, and this new roadmap includes many of the steps recommended by the Institute over the course of the current pandemic.
Eddie Tuttle, Director of Policy at CIOB, said:
“This is an important time for the industry, and a key focus currently is job retention and creation. We are pleased to see this response includes much of our input and calls made in recent months, including our written submission to the BEIS select committee, and look forward to working with the Construction Leadership Council on making these steps a reality.”
