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 and CECA are delivering an action within the Construction Sector Deal to introduce a new Common Assessment Standard which will improve efficiency and reduce cost in the construction pre-qualification (PQ) process. This is the first phase of implementation and includes publication of the Common Assessment Standard and recognition of the first assessment bodies to certify companies against the standard. Once the new system is fully up and running, companies will be certified once a year by a recognised assessment body and this should be accepted by Clients and Contractors who will no longer need to specify a particular assessment body.
Delivering a SmartCard Audit
The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has set a requirement for all cards (displaying the CSCS logo) to develop plans to introduce smart technology by 2020 via its Industrial Strategy: Construction 2025. The aim of this requirement is to provide the industry with a consistent means of recognising that individuals working on construction sites have the required training and qualifications for their occupation. The Build UK and CECA SmartCard Audit promotes the value of smart technology and aims to drive increased industry uptake. Benefits of the audit include assisting members towards a fully qualified workforce, leading to improved standards, safety and productivity on site. The audit will also highlight any expired or fraudulent cards.
