Social capital

The Value Toolkit Overview published by the Construction Innovation Hub in April 2021 defines social capital as: ‘…the networks together with the shared norms, values and understanding that facilitate cooperation within and among groups. In the context of the built environment, Social Capital refers to influence and consultation, equality and diversity, networks and connections as well as the changes people experience in these areas as a result of built assets.’
