Collaboration Initiative

Transformation through Collaboration

Collaboration is fundamental to Constructing Excellence. Find out more about our approach and commitment.

Why collaboration and why now?

Collaboration in the workplace between organisations has been a long-standing challenge. The Construction sector is no exception with its use in the sector having been at best patchy despite Construction Excellence having long advocated its benefits.

The need for collaboration to improve contract delivery and projects through the supply chain has never been more important given the current economic climate typified by market contraction, labour and skill shortages, supply chain issues and problems as well as a lack of investment in Digitisation across the sector.

We are confident that the Construction Industry Collaboration Initiative will help to address the challenges that have persistently hindered the construction sector, and we look forward to working with our members to drive positive change in the industry.
