NEWS: Kiss House secures CBC status!
We are delighted to have secured CIOB Chartered Building Consultancy status!
Acquiring this status has been a long-term ambition for us at Kiss House. Our co-founder Mike Jacob has been a chartered member of the CIOB for over a decade and previously ran Chartered Building Practice, Trunk Low Energy Building so we were well versed in the benefits.
The CIOB is the world’s largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership, and is a vibrant worldwide community. In 1834, they were assigned a Royal Charter (which commits them / members to working in the public interest), to promote the science and practice of construction to benefit society. Ultimately the CIOB community is dedicated to improving the quality of life for those using and creating the built environment.
The work of CIOB members spans across many areas of the built environment, from research and education to development, conservation and industry improvement, and the CIOB accreditation is a mark of competency and professionalism, offering reassurance to customers and partners.
You can read the recent news piece on Kiss House achieving chartered status on page 51 of the CIOB Construction Management magazine.
The CIOB aims to educate and guide members through their careers, to define standards for policymakers and to create a safe, secure and comfortable environment for the public. They provide various resources and educational courses for members, run networking events and encourage collaboration across the industry — especially via their new app “CIOB Connect.” The app helps to connect members across the globe, and to provide up to date construction news, training videos and research resources.
The CIOB recognises the need for positive change in the built environment industry. They have recently produced a charter for diversity and inclusion in construction, recognising the need to address skills shortages, lack of diversity and sense of belonging affecting the sector.
They campaign on major issues including the eradication of modern slavery, improving the quality of the built environment and protecting the natural environment through energy-efficient builds.
“Because Kiss House is at the cutting edge of construction innovation and best practice, becoming a CIOB Chartered Building Consultancy was an important goal for us.”
