The construction sector is undergoing a significant transformation driven by forces such as digital technology, climate change, globalisation and market uncertainty. 

It is essential that all construction companies, regardless of size, are supported to maximise the benefits and opportunities of this transformation. A resilient, productive and innovative construction sector is vital to delivering national economic priorities, which can be achieved by increasing collaboration and knowledge-sharing across the industry.

CCI will play a key role in promoting and encouraging co-opetition* amongst construction firms through supported partner matching and development planning.
