Build UK is working on behalf of its members to do what they can to address the inflationary pressures currently facing the industry. In addition, Build UK has been taking forward its work on long‐standing issues as part of Improving Business Performance, Increasing Productivity, and Recruiting, Training and Retaining Talent across the whole supply chain.

The statutory review of the Duty to Report regulations published in April highlighted the ‘positive impact’ that Build UK’s benchmarking of payment performance has had across the sector, with Build UK contractor members now taking an average of just 32 days to pay invoices. Ahead of the Building Safety Act coming into force this week,the Working Group 2 report was delivered, benchmarking the competence requirements for six occupations identified as priorities for ensuring fire safety in buildings. Along with the CSCS Smart Check app launched in April, this represents a major step towards ensuring that individuals deemed competent have the appropriate knowledge, skills and training to undertake their role.
