Get involved in research project on social value in the construction industry


​The IED, together with Arup, Atkins, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Commonplace, Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and Civil Engineering Contractors’ Association (CECA) North West, has been gathering insight on what social value (or related terminology such as social return, social responsibility and triple bottom line) is being delivered by construction and related businesses, and uncover the challenges to improving social value outcomes.

We’ve had lots of interesting responses and gained some really useful insight. As we work to collate our findings and report back on the clear challenges in delivery and measurement of social value, we are putting out a final call for input into our research.
