The Construction Industry Council (CIC) is the representative forum for professional bodies, research organisations and specialist business associations in the United Kingdom construction industry.[1]


Established in 1988 (as the Building Industry Council - it changed its name in April 1990) with just five founder members, CIC provides a single voice for professionals in all sectors of the built environment through its collective membership of 500,000 individual professionals and more than 25,000 firms of construction consultants.[1] The breadth and depth of its membership means that CIC (like a small number of other bodies, including Constructing Excellence) can speak with authority on issues connected with construction without being constrained by the self-interest of any particular sector of the industry.

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 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.
