Pg 18-19 WELCOME Encouraging clear, constructive and quick channels of communication between the public and private sector has been top of the wish list for both Government and companies for many years. With the Government looking to stimulate significant levels of investment in public sector developments and major infrastructure projects, this need for close collaboration is arguably greater than ever. Although the spotlight on construction recovery has been firmly on housing in the last couple of years, there is a massive opportunity to kick-start a revival in fortunes for public sector construction. The decision, therefore, of the Chartered Institute of Building to launch a new initiative to get the public and private sectors closer together is as welcome as it is timely. Construction is a major player in the future of the UK with more than 2.2 million people directly employed and making up 6.4% of the economy. Although it impacts upon every sector of society in one way or another its voice is not heard often enough within Government agendas. CIOB has launched a new website that delivers key information, data and perspectives that reveal the true extent and value of construction professionals to UK society. At a local level, the portal details construction's activity across the UK so that MPs wanting to engage with the industry in their Grosvenor House, Central Park, Telford, TF2 9TW T: 01952 234000 F: 01952 234003 E: T A N N E R S T I L E S P U B L I S H I N G TSPMEDIA CONTRIBUTING EDITOR Paul Groves EDITORIAL CO-ORDINATOR Devan Morgan ADVERTISEMENT PRODUCTION Charlotte Wall DESIGN & ARTWORK Kat Jones Terms and Conditions - While every eff ort is made to ensure the accuracy of all articles and information appearing in Public Sector Building Specifi cation the publisher does not accept liability for errors and omissions, printing or otherwise, that may appear in this publication.

At a national level, the site provides a transparent way to view and engage with CIOB responses to government and industry consultations. As Eddie Tuttle, Principal Policy & Public Affairs Manager at the CIOB said: "Fostering collaboration has many mutual benefits and whilst this site won't in itself bridge the gap between industry and government it is another tool in construction's growing armoury where information can be more easily accessed and exchanged. "Influencing the big debates happening in Whitehall and the regions and also the devolved administrations is helping promote the value and importance of construction as a whole. Industry participation is key." Hopefully this new portal will go a long way in addressing the numerous challenges that both the public sector and construction industry have shared in recent years, as well as highlighting the opportunities for growth that so clearly exist.
