Accord Steering Group

The Construction Sector Accord programme is being led by the Accord Steering Group. This is made up of around 24 construction sector leaders from across government and industry.

Steering Group members represent a range of interest groups from across the construction ecosystem — from property developers, to designers, to constructors and clients.

The Group includes the chief executives of government agencies that work closely with the industry as regulators, educators, or major clients.
