The Construction Industry Council (CIC) is the representative forum for the professional bodies, research organisations and specialist business associations in the construction industry.

BEPE Project Board

CIC assumed responsibility for the Built Environment Profesional Education Project in 2016 for a year to help smooth the transition from a government driven project to an industry owned and led project. Tony Burton will be the Inclusive Environment Champion for CIC and Paul Morrell, who chaired the BEPE Project Board since its inception in March 2014 will continue to be the chair of the BEPE Project Board during this transitional year. 

The first task for the CIC was to establish a project board chaired by Paul Morrell. Nearly all the original Board members are continuing to support the project as Board members for another year – a great help with enabling a smooth transition from a government driven to an industry led project. A number of additional senior figures in the development industry have also been invited onto the board to help promote an holistic approach to achieving an inclusive environment.
