Build UK will support the industry to adopt more effective ways of working to deliver better project outcomes by:
- Improving efficiency, demonstrating capability and reducing cost in the construction supply chain
- Developing and utilising innovative solutions to cut waste and improve quality.
Construction Pre-Qualification System
Build UK, with the support of CECA, is rolling out the Common Assessment Standard to improve efficiency and reduce cost in the construction pre-qualification (PQ) process. The Common Assessment Standard is available from four Recognised Assessment Bodies, and a growing list of Contractors and Clients are now specifying that their supply chains are certified to the standard.
Increasing the Use of Smart Technology
With the last Build UK SmartCard Audit revealing that only 53% of cards were checked using Smart Technology, Build UK and CSCS have published guidance on ‘How to be a Smart Site’ together with a handy poster to help companies realise the benefits.
