It urges industry leaders, businesses and the public sector to help shape the future of Scotland’s construction sector by taking part in a consultation on its draft Transformation Action Plan. 

The feedback will help the CLF and the Scottish Government “define action” in key areas of industry where transformation is needed most, including: 

  • Digital transformation 
  • Net zero commitments 
  • Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) 
  • Fair work policy 
  • Procurement reform 

It will deliver commitments in the CLF’s Scottish Construction Accord, launched in October 2022. 

Once finalised the plan will be published on CLF’s website. 

The programme project will be managed by the Scottish Futures Trust. 

The draft plan can be viewed in full here. 

Feedback should be submitted by Friday 17 November.  

“For the industry to continue to evolve and meet the transition to net zero and a wellbeing economy, it is widely recognised that further progression is required,” said Elliot Robertson, CEO of Robertson Group and member of the CLF. 

“The Transformation Action Plan is a result of the work undertaken by the working subgroups within the CLF, and I would encourage all leaders across our sector to take the opportunity to have their say in defining what transformation looks like for them.   

“There is great value to be added to the plan by those in our sector who are working hard to deliver transformation. 

“The consultation on the plan provides a great starting point for discussion and the combined participation of the public and private sectors in the process can result in a document that unites us to deliver real sustainable transformation across our complex and diverse industry.”
