Institute plans further expansion into Americas

World Trade Centre - New York

The Chartered Institute of Building has opened an office in New York.

The office, which will work in tandem with the New York Building Congress, aims to provide a professional establishment for construction managers in the region and will offer training courses.

Chris Blythe, chief executive of the CIOB, said: “By opening a New York office, in a city with some of the most iconic buildings and infrastructure in the world, and staffing it with local specialists we will be coupling regional expertise and know-how alongside the values associated with a chartered professional body.”

The CIOB is planning on using the New York office to raise its profile in the Americas as it plans further expansion in Canada and Latin America.
