To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, what steps his Department is taking to improve (a) co-ordination, (b) efficiency and (c) improvements to productivity within the construction industry.
The Industrial Strategy for Construction, Construction 2025, was published in July 2013; it sets out a vision of where the industry will be in 2025 and the steps that are needed to get there. This is being taken forward in partnership with the industry through the Construction Leadership Council.
Achieving the four key ambitions of the strategy - reducing initial cost of construction and the whole-life cost of assets; reducing overall time from inception to completion; reducing greenhouse gas emissions; and reducing the trade gap between total exports and total imports - will improve the efficiency and the productivity of the industry.
