We must respond to critical challenges

Priority areas for transformation

​Together we must respond to the challenges and opportunities facing the building and construction industry. Six priorities have been identified to spearhead transformation.

The Industry Transformation Agenda is underpinned by a framework that identifies 30 action areas to drive transformation.  It calls on us to work together - as individuals, companies, a sector and working with local and central government - to drive system-wide change.

In consultation with industry, the following six priorities have been selected to progress.

It is well recognised and talked about across the industry that a step change is required to lift performance, boost productivity and embrace new technology and thinking across the sector.

This will require strong leadership and collaboration across all elements of the sector, including client groups who have a pivotal role in setting expectations and facilitating the sector's transformation.
