The Construction Leadership Council has published a document intended to support UK firms respond to the impacts of the current crisis in Ukraine.

Companies from across UK construction have reported emerging challenges that have arisen because of the conflict, including escalation in costs for materials and energy.

In response, the CLC has drawn together Industry response to the Ukraine Crisis. Guidance Note 1, which provides expert guidance to outline the practical steps that all parts of the industry can take to mitigate the market impacts.

As with its response to the Covid crisis, the CLC guidance reminds of the importance of early engagement and collaboration to secure both existing and planned projects. It also provides dedicated checklists for different types of organisation including clients, main contractors and specialists.

Arcadis partner and CLC member Simon Rawlinson said:

“We recognise that many businesses will be concerned about how the current situation in Ukraine will impact upon their company and the work that they do. The CLC hopes to help companies navigate through these current challenges with guidance and points to think about, supporting firms in what could be a challenging period for the sector.”
