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.
Reforming the Pre-Qualification system
The current system of pre-qualification in construction is bureaucratic and repetitive, creating unnecessary complexity and costing the supply chain both time and money. Build UK and CECA, with the support of the Construction Leadership Council and in consultation with members and assessing schemes, focusses on developing greater commonality in pre-qualification assessment.
Delivering a SmartCard Audit
The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has specified a requirement for skills cards to carry the CSCS logo, with no equivalents accepted, from 2015 and for these cards to become smart enabled, to provide 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's SmartCard Audit promotes the value of the smart technology used by CSCS and its affiliated schemes to drive increased industry uptake and highlight any expired and fraudulent cards.
Build UK has published information on the payment performance of its Contractor members using data submitted under the Duty to Report on Payment Practices and Performance.
Build UK and CITB have launched a new campaign to encourage people to choose a career in construction.
