The Construction Leadership Council has supported a new tool to drive better value in the delivery of future construction projects.

Today (26 April 2021) industry gets its first look at the Value Toolkit, an initiative that has been developed by the Construction Innovation Hub to drive value-based decision-making for construction.

The toolkit is intended to support the industry to move away from cost-based approaches to assessing projects, instead targeting better social, environmental and economic outcomes for every pound spent on buildings and infrastructure.

Construction Leadership Council members have been heavily involved in the development of the toolkit which is now moving into its pilot phase with 20 organisations looking to use under test toolkit on real life projects over the next six months.

CLC co-chair Andy Mitchell said: “At its core the Construction Leadership Council looks to find ways for the industry to harness innovation, skills and technology to deliver the outcomes wanted by the public. As such, we are delighted to support the development of the Value Toolkit, which is fully aligned with our mission.

“We want to commend the team that has developed the Toolkit, and encourage colleagues from across industry to support its pilot phase, as well as its wider roll out later this year.”
