Get it Right, a UK Construction Quality Effort


July 31, 2016

Construction errors cost the UK industry billions every single year. The annual spend due to error is estimated to be around 7 times the total annual profit of the UK Construction Industry.

The Get It Right Initiative came out of discussions at the Institution of Civil Engineers Best Practice Panel and has been developed with the single aim of significantly reducing error in construction.

The Get It Right Initiative is currently led by a number of major construction companies and clients and has received welcome support from the CITB through their Growth and Innovation Fund.
