While government has a role to play in helping to ensure the industry is ready to make the most of these opportunities, we know that most of the innovative thinking as to how we can meet these challenges will come from the expertise within construction firms.
To this end, the CBI Construction Council has asked a group of future leaders to develop recommendations focussed on improving collaboration and digitisation within the sector. The work of this group will complement existing work, such as Construction 2025, by providing the view from within the industry.
The group, comprising representatives from across the supply chain, from design to sub – contractors, is expected to report to the CBI’s Construction Council, a 35 – strong forum of chief executives, in November.
The Future Leaders’ Group consists of 18 rising stars under the age of 35, drawn from companies spanning the supply chain, from major construction firms to small and medium sized businesses. The group represent a wide spectrum of jobs from across the construction industry, including construction products, contractors and services.
The group will organise its work around four work streams:
- Procurement and Contract Structures
- Research and Innovation
