Direct feedback from current members tells us that the biggest benefit to them is the flow of information provided and the opportunities to be in face to face contact with other members and shared experience. To help you decide how membership could benefit your company we have listed some tangible benefits below.

Library of Health, Safety and Environmental information

We have developed a number of specific publications; tool box talks; guidance notes and shared good practice information to assist members with meeting and improving HS&E requirements. A HS&E Committee led by our HS&E Manager meets on a regular basis and all membership groups are invited. The HS&E Committee meetings provide a great opportunity to network; share information; problem solving opportunity; share lessons learned from accidents and incidents and to make connections with other members.
Additionally our HS&E Manager can provide site visits and specific member support with good practice; documentation development; auditing and risk assessment.


Access to representation to lobby Government and Clients

CONSTRUCT is a Trade Association member of BUILD UK which lobbies both clients and Government giving our members a voice at the highest levels of influence. We also have representation on BUILD UK leadership and task groups in the areas of Fair Trade; Health and Safety; Occupational Health and Training.

Brian Morrisroe (AJ Morrisroe) is also a member of the Construction Leadership Council representing Industry, CONSTRUCT and Build UK needs; this provides a strong influence opportunity at the forefront from change.


Industry Led Council

CONSTRUCT is managed by an elected Council of its members with representatives from all categories of membership. The Council decides and sets the agenda for the organisation and ensures members choices and needs are addressed and represented.


Dedicated Training Support

CONSTRUCT employs a Training Manager and runs a CITB supported Training Group for our members. The Training Group meets on a regular basis and provides members with funded training events relevant to skills shortages and requirements. Members also receive and share information of skills, training and qualifications plus access to funded projects e.g. additional NVQ funding support through the Training Manager


Access to higher rate of CITB Grant

CONSTRUCT members who are in scope to CITB Levy and Grants have the opportunity to participate in the CITB Sector Specific Training Pilot each year which provides a higher daily rate of CITB grant for pre-determined sector specific course titles.


Partnership with Constructing Better Health

From 2015 we have agreed a partnership with Constructing Better Health (CBH) which provides membership to CBH and all their services inclusive of the CONSTRUCT yearly membership fee. We have also developed sector specific occupational health tool box talks; guidance notes and posters to assist members to educate and manage occupational health risks in the workplace.


Free Legal Advice

CONSTRUCT has come to an agreement which includes free advice with legal firm Osborne Clarke. The free advice is restricted to one hour, but as experts in the construction industry, you can be assured that one hour is sufficient to get a feel for what needs to happen next. You can seek advice on any topic, except for issues relating to Health & Safety.


Member Networking Opportunities

CONSTRUCT is fundamentally a group of working parties set up as committees which invites inclusion of all stakeholders.  By getting involved with CONSTRUCT and its committees, members get direct access to all the leading contractors, suppliers, consultants and problem solvers. Developing close relationships with contractors can only help to ensure buildability issues are resolved at early as possible and client’s expectations are realised as painlessly as possible.  CONSTRUCT members are leading the way when it comes to development and innovation in building methods and materials, so membership ensures you stay abreast of what’s happening and why.


Yearly Awards

CONSTRUCT runs its own annual awards to reflect excellence, capability and inventiveness in concrete construction. The awards cover a wide spectrum of activities associated with structural concrete, and previous winners have won because of new techniques overcoming specific challenges, innovative products and approaches which contribute to concrete.  Award categories include for Projects, Health and Safety Innovation and recognition of individuals.


Member to member benefits

These opportunities include access to training courses, some at discounted prices; a comprehensive risk management and insurance consultancy service from supplier member Pinner Risk Solutions Ltd (PRS) and access to new product developments and specific materials and equipment information and guidance.
