About Us
Influencing the stability of the UK construction industry.

Our Mission

The UK construction sector is consistently ranked number one for insolvency, with more than 3,000 firms failing every year. Brought into public spotlight following the high-profile collapse or Carillion in 2018, this number is far greater than any other sector, and causes significant economic, social, and environmental harm.

In a world that aims to build back better, the Save Construction Initiative is an industry-driven taskforce influencing the stability of the UK construction industry.

Our Influence

SHARE – Work with industry stakeholders to build a more stable construction industry.

LEARN – Support research into the stability of the industry and the factors that make it more vulnerable to failure than other industries.

CHANGE – Lobby government to place strategic priority for marketplace stability, through policy development in areas of planning, finance, procurement, research, and innovation.

IMPROVE – Implement new industry-wide practices that enable the stability of the construction industry.

PEOPLE – Underpin the stability of the construction industry by improving people outcomes.

We listened to the marketplace:
