The survey is part of a PhD study research undertaken by Salford University which aims to understand the relationship between the benefits that client organisations can achieve and their level of maturity with regard to BIM deployment. The survey outputs will be used as a framework to assess client’s BIM maturity and the questionnaire is open until September.
The CCG have identified a number of areas where clients can work together to improve cost out-turn and generally improve the quality and security of outcome when investing in the built environment. Eliminating defects or managing timely resolution when they do occur is one such area where a concerted effort will yield tangible cost savings and better business outcomes for all parties involved.
Following the successful strategy day on the 30th April the CCG is now in the process of forming a Defects Task Group to address the estimated contract costs of between 1% – 5% attributed to the consequences of defects, both within the construction phase and thereafter once the asset is put into operational use.
Below are the presentations from the day and thank you to all who contributed and presented to make it a successful event

During our annual strategy day Clive Johnson, Deputy Chair of CCG, presented the importance on raising the Health agenda in the industry.
It included the risks associated with sitting too long at your desk and encouraged everyone to STAND UP!
The CCG held its annual strategy day on the 30th April attended by our National Members and other leading industry clients. The content and the quality of the presentations were well received with feedback from the audience enabling us to build our strategy for next year and beyond. Our focus will continue to provide our members with tools and information to get best value from the industry by enabling and encouraging suppliers to perform at their full potential through strong leadership. All agreed during the day to work with the industry to reduce defects, continue to lead BIM implementation and raise the Health agenda in the industry. We have already received some very positive comments on the day:
“Many thanks, and it was a privilege to host Constructing Excellence and a gathering of such important and influential clients from our industry. Thank you to the CE team for organising the strategy day and for giving us the opportunity to describe our journey on process improvements and BIM, as well as the fantastic benefits we have derived already from being members of CE and CCG.
“On behalf of Frank and myself, I would like to express our gratitude for inviting us to the CCG strategy day yesterday. We found it very beneficial and learned a lot from our attendance”
Further information from the day will be posted shortly including the many benefits of being a National Member of Construction Clients’ Group.
The CCG is the only client representative body that works across all sectors of industry, supporting both informed large repeat clients and the less experienced clients that do not have consistent build programmes or in-house expertise to call upon.
The CCG have invited the following existing client groups to participate within the Strategic Forum for Construction:
- British Property Federation
- Government Construction Board
- Local government Association
- Infrastructure UK Client Group
