Government construction strategy

The first Government Construction Strategy, Government Construction Strategy 2011 2015, was published in May 2011. It was prepared by the Efficiency and Reform Group, working with the Construction Sector Unit of the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS), and Infrastructure UK (IUK). The strategy was overseen by the Government Construction Board, originally chaired by the Chief Construction Adviser. However, when that role was abolished in November 2015, Cabinet Office minister Nick Hancock took over responsibility. The primary intention of the strategy was to reduce the cost of public sector construction by up to 20% by the end of the parliament, and to stimulate growth.

The second Government Construction Strategy, Government Construction Strategy 2016 2020 was published by the Cabinet Office and the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) in March 2016. It set out plans to deliver £1.7 billion of efficiencies and 20,000 apprenticeships.
