A further benefit is that this approach allows additional opportunity to build valuable relationships across the supply chain partners and the project team, and perhaps allows the supply chain to understand the client in a way that it may not otherwise have. We have now developed the Outcomes Statement and Strategic Drivers and are now embedding these in the project, measuring them and hopefully, delivering on them as the project progresses.

“Planners recognise the crucial importance of valuing factors beyond cost and time, which is why we developed the RTPI Measuring What Matters toolkit. The CIH Value Toolkit will be a vital resource to support the construction sector to consider the lifecycle of a project holistically. This will put the environment and social impact to be at the core of decision-making. It’s important now for the industry to seize the opportunity to embed the new toolkit into everyday business.”

“The Value Toolkit provides a fantastic method of engaging at a deeper level with clients to thoroughly understand their needs and what is driving them to deliver projects. Being an early implementer in the trial phase of the Toolkit has bought us an improved understanding of the client – contractor relationship and how the benefits early contractor involvement can really be maximised. We look forward to using the toolkit with further clients in the future.”

“The Value Toolkit represents an essential next step in the development of a meaningful framework for better decision making in our industry. It recognises that we must live within our planetary boundaries in order to flourish and it is the first tool that genuinely tries to shift the paradigm on by reflecting value in terms of impacts and outcomes on our quality of life and quality of the planet. To make it happen will now require sector and industry leadership and courage and we can see that exists in the way that people have engaged with the process to this stage.”
