The Get It Right Initiative

The Get It Right Initiative launched in 2017 informed by research conducted in 2015/6 into the problem of error in the UK construction industry. The research revealed that, on average, 21% of project turnover is wasted on avoidable error.

The instigators of the research could not ignore these results and set up The Get It Right Initiative (GIRI) as a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving productivity and quality in the UK construction industry, with the singular aim of eliminating avoidable error and its associated consequences.

GIRI has adopted a multi-disciplinary approach and is connecting businesses to raise awareness across the sector and focus on changing culture and attitudes, as well as improving knowledge, decision-making and planning skills. Members include clients, consultants, contractors, regulators, educators, professional institutions and trade bodies who are working together to eliminate error and improve the UK Construction industry.

Specialist training in error reduction was developed with the CITB and industry partners and full details of training courses are available on the website.

Detailed information about how GIRI is tackling the problem of error in UK construction can be found on the website alongside the original research reports and a video explaining the challenges the Industry faces and the benefits of membership.
