Construction Playbook published
The government has published its Construction Playbook, a document which sets out guidelines for public sector procurement of construction work.
The Playbook, developed in consultation with the construction industry, outlines how government and industry can better work together to deliver public sector works in a more modern, greener, more efficient way.
The Playbook also outlines the key role the construction sector will play in both the UK’s recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and work to bring greenhouse gas emissions down to net zero by 2050. Green initiatives in the Playbook include promoting the use of carbon assessments to understand and minimise the greenhouse emissions of projects.
CBI deputy director-general Josh Hardie said in Construction News: “The government is construction’s biggest client, meaning a sea-change in the way it buys from the construction industry is critical to spreading better practices across the sector and through the supply chain.”
