The Construction Industry Council (CIC) is the representative body for the professional bodies, research organizations and specialist business associations in the construction industry in the United Kingdom. It was formed in 1988 as the Building Industry Council and changed its name in April 1990.



The Construction Industry Council aims to provide a single voice for professionals in all sectors of the built environment in the UK through its collective membership of 500,000 individual construction professionals and 25,000 firms of construction consultants. As representative of the views of professionals, it has a seat on the government/industry body, the Strategic Forum for Construction.

The Construction Industry Council also represents the views of the higher level of the industry (professional, managerial and technical) in ConstructionSkills, the Sector Skills Council for construction. ConstructionSkills is a partnership between CIC, CITB-ConstructionSkills and CITB Northern Ireland.

The Construction Industry Council developed and operates the Design Quality Indicator (DQI) tool to measure the design quality of buildings.


The Construction Industry Council's work is managed on a day-to day basis by a small secretariat which works under the direction of the Chief Executive who is responsible to the Council. The Executive Board acts as the main policy and strategy vehicle of the Council.
