Build UK has added the CIOB, Carey Group and housebuilder Berkeley Group as new members.
The CIOB is the first professional body to join Build UK as part of its drive to speak collectively on behalf of the construction supply chain.
Build UK chief executive Suzannah Nichol said: “We are all behind the goal of delivering new homes, new infrastructure and more public and private buildings and we each have a role to play creating a successful construction sector.
“By joining Build UK, CIOB demonstrates its forward-thinking commitment to a better industry, and by working together we can really drive change across the industry.”
CIOB chief executive Chris Blythe said: “The industry is at its best when it collaborates and that is something we need to reflect when we talk to government and clients.
“Our public benefit agenda and ambition to create a safer, more professional and rewarding career for those who join construction is sentiment shared by Build UK and together we can make an even bigger difference.”
Build UK has also added Berkeley Group to its list of clients which already includes companies like Argent and Great Portland Estates, while The Carey Group becomes its 28th main contractor member.
Berkeley Group divisional managing director Karl Whiteman said: “Berkeley Group is delighted to join Build UK to sit at the same table as a growing number of forward-thinking businesses.
“We are ready to roll up our sleeves to tackle the industry’s challenges together, ensuring we have the skills to deliver the UK’s housing infrastructure.”
