Contractor members

Reflecting its origins, Build UK has two categories of membership: contractor members and trade association members.


The National Specialist Contractors' Council comprised 32 specialist Specialist Engineering Contractors Group. It was a member of the Joint Contracts Tribunal.


It was one of two organisations that represented the views of contractors on the Strategic Forum for Construction, along with the Construction Alliance. UKCG also worked closely with the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) Construction Council.[4]

Established in January 2009, the UKCG succeeded the Major Contractors Group and the National Contractors Federation which had until that point represented the views of the leading UK contractors. The UKCG represented over 30 contractors operating in the UK. Between them (c. 2105), UKCG members accounted for £33 billion of construction turnover - a third of UK construction total output.


Build UK was launched on 1 September 2015, following the merger of the UKCG and the NSCC. Its initial action plan had five key areas: the image of construction, industry’s skills needs, effective pre-qualification, health and safety performance, and fair payment practices.[3]
