European Construction Institute joins BRE
Working with, and for its membership, the ECI's mission is to drive project execution and delivery best practice across the international engineering construction sector. The move is designed to strengthen and grow ECI membership and its impact on the sector at a time of significant global challenges.
ECI’s core themes are:
- Project delivery.
- Leadership and people development.
- Innovation and technology.
- Safety, health, environment and quality (SHEQ).
The synergies in themes with Constructing Excellence (focused on the built environment primarily in the UK), together with transferable expertise, experience and resources, strengthens both organisations. Together, the aim is to enable all parties engaged in international projects in the built environment and engineering construction to collaborate and benefit from collective learning and experience so that challenges preventing successful project delivery can be addressed.
John Fotherby, ECI Executive Board Chair, said:
“ECI has a strong vision for the engineering construction sector and the merger with BRE provides us with the opportunity to strengthen our influence and deliver superior value for our members around the world. We are all delighted by this development and look forward to sharing knowledge and best practice to benefit the industry.”
Peter Bonfield CEO of BRE said:
“ECI has always represented a movement for positive change, harnessing the energy and commitment of many hundreds of organisations at a regional and national level across Europe. BRE, ECI and Constructing Excellence are trusted and independent brands who have worked closely together for many years – the synergies are strong. We share the core objective of creating a better project delivery sector for all. We are very pleased about this.”
