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.
Common Assessment Standard
The Common Assessment Standard, developed by Build UK, is designed to improve efficiency and reduce cost in the construction pre-qualification (PQ) process. Companies that have the Common Assessment Standard are certified once a year by a Recognised Assessment Body and this is accepted by a growing list of Contractors and Clients who no longer specify a particular assessment body.
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.
