In response to the pandemic, in October 2020 the CLF published its Construction Recovery Plan to support Scotland’s construction sector during the pandemic and towards recovery.
The plan, which was created following extensive consultation, focussed on the joint action required between the industry and the public sector to respond to the pandemic.
The plan worked towards maximising support for employers and employees and establishing new ways of working to manage infection control, health and safety and shared learning opportunities.
The executive group for the recovery plan was chaired by Peter Reekie, chief executive of infrastructure body, the Scottish Futures Trust, in collaboration with industry and the public sector. Its achievements include:
- The pipeline forecast tool giving visibility of £11bn of future public sector projects developed by the Scottish Futures Trust
- The data dashboard for better-informed business decisions and impact insights
- The digital funding guides and a new skills directory – all developed by BE-ST
- Work to improve key areas such as procurement, quality, skills, manufacturing and diversity and inclusion.Read a full summary of the actions and associated outputs
