Involvement with Industry Changing Projects

Through ACIFC’s membership of and close association with Build UK, ACIFC members are able to have an input on key projects that will shape the construction industry. More information on any of the below projects can be found here.

    Delivering Zero Retentions
  • Cash retention – the withholding of a percentage of payment on construction work until it is completed free of defects – is intended to provide security to the industry’s clients that any defects will be rectified appropriately. However, retentions are problematic for all parties in the supply chain and generally do not provide an appropriate or proportionate mechanism for ensuring quality and fair payment. ACIFC Member Stanford Industrial Concrete Flooring have represented the association on the Retentions Task Group.
  • The Construction Supply Chain Payment Charter, introduced by the Construction Leadership Council, sets out an ambition to move to zero retention by 2025.
    Supporting a New Occupational Health Framework
  • Build UK is working to introduce an occupational health scheme for the construction sector that can be used by all employers required to undertake occupational health surveillance and that enables individuals to move between employers with transferable health records
    Reforming the Pre-Qualification System
  • Common Assessment Standard
  • The project will create a Common Assessment Standard which will comprise of a question set based on existing PQQs, including PAS 91, and desktop and site/premises-based assessment standards.
  • Companies will be audited once a year, by a recognised assessment body, against the industry-agreed ‘Common Assessment Standard’. This would be accepted by Clients and Contractors providing assurance that their supply chains are competent and they would not specify a particular assessment body.
  • ACIFC Member Malin Industrial Floors has been involved with the pilot of the scheme.
