Mark Reynolds took over the CLC co-chair role in the summer

It added that it will also look at more pressing challenges such as mitigating the impacts of inflation, managing delivery risks and business sustainability.

CLC Co-Chair Mark Reynolds, who was appointed to the role in the summer, said: “The last two years have been momentous for the construction industry, and the CLC has helped to guide and support the sector through a very complex time, saving countless jobs and still delivering the homes and infrastructure our communities need.

“We now want to build on that success to enable a new era for delivery, strengthening collaboration across construction and speaking to Government with a single voice. We must work together to overcome the challenges we face and leverage the opportunities available.”

The CLC also said it will be recruiting industry sponsors and young ambassadors to sit within its new structure.

It said the young ambassadors will be young professionals currently in the sector to support the CLC’s succession planning.
