The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has released a 'roadmap to recovery' for the infrastructure sector to help tackle the economic fallout of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The road map is based on the following three 'Rs':
Restart: increase output, maximise employment and minimise disruption (0-3 months);
Reset: drive demand, increase productivity, strengthen capability in the supply chain (3-12 months); and
Reinvent: transform the industry, deliver better value, collaboration and partnership (12-24 months).
Across the strategy, the industry would move from maximising employment and minimising disputes in the short term, to adopting new procurement models and new technologies over a longer term.
The CLC has also asked for the creation of four sector working groups - infrastructure, housing, RMI (repair, maintenance and improvement) and social infrastructure, and construction - to help develop strategies and liaise between government and industry.
