The Ground Forum brings together the trade associations and learned societies that represent the myriad interests within the ground engineering sector. It works to share insight and knowledge across the industry and collaborate on the issues that cut across the areas of interest of our member organisations. 

We have representation on the Construction Industry Council. This allows us to take an active role in advising the government on matters that will affect ground engineering on a strategic level. These can range from issues relating to education and skills through to sustainability and environmental issues and beyond.

The Construction Industry Council (CIC) is the representative forum for the professional bodies, research organisations and specialist business associations in the construction industry.

CIC occupies a key role within the UK construction industry providing a single voice for professionals in all sectors of the built environment, all through its collective membership of 500,000 individual professionals and more than 25,000 firms of construction consultants.

The breadth and depth of its membership means that CIC is the only single body able to speak with authority on the diverse issues connected with construction without being constrained by the self-interest of any particular sector of the industry. This includes membership of the Strategic Forum for Construction.

CIC Vision
To be recognised and respected by government and across the UK construction industry as an effective thought leader, representing the UK built environment professions together

CIC Mission
To improve the UK construction industry by collectively representing and supporting the built environment professions
