The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is creating a simple to understand piece of research on the key issue of productivity in construction, which will be supported by polling of policy makers and industry across the entire built environment. The RICS is working with the CIOB to build a truly cross-industry sample.
The aim is to help broaden understanding of construction productivity among decision makers and policy makers within industry and government. Additionally, it will deliver a common base of knowledge, dispel myths, and provide a reference point for a wide variety of those interested in productivity.
The report will draw on the government’s Fixing the Foundations report launched in the summer of 2015 which contained a 15-point plan to improve the UK’s productivity. The report will explore how, for each point, construction acts as an agent of change, an object of change, provides opportunities and also will set out the challenges associated with each section in a construction context.
In order to garner an understanding of the built environment’s attitudes towards productivity, we would welcome your input on a short survey that should take approximately 5 – 10 minutes to complete.
The research will be released in May 2016.
