Government responds to construction industry review 20/07/2017

Britain's construction industry faces "inexorable decline" unless radical steps are taken to address its longstanding problems - that was the key finding of an independent review commissioned by two government departments published last year.


In February 2016, the government asked the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) to look at the labour model in the construction industry. The CLC commissioned Mark Farmer to undertake a review.


The Farmer Review of the UK Construction Labour Model was hard-hitting and highlighted construction's dysfunctional training model, its lack of innovation and collaboration as well as its non-existent research and development culture.


The government have now published its response to the Farmer Review recommendations. In its response, the government refers to measures announced in the Housing White Paper in February and to the announcement of the £1.7bn Accelerated Construction Programme which aims to encourage medium to low volume builders, new developers and innovative methods of construction in order to build at double the rate of traditional housebuilders.
