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, has transformed the construction pre-qualification (PQ) process, improving efficiency, reducing cost and raising quality standards. 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.
