NEWS: Kiss House secure 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 as 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. we continue to deliver construction innovation and best practice in the built environment.
You can read the recent news piece on us achieving chartered status on page 51 of the CIOB Construction Management magazine.
As a Chartered Building Consultancy, we are committed to delivering a quality service, conducting business with integrity and working with the best interests of our customers at the heart of all projects. To qualify as a Chartered Building Consultancy, companies must present evidence of professional qualifications of directors and partners; show a significant proportion of these individuals are qualified as Chartered Builders, and ensure that all staff are engaged in the management of the construction process, and provide professional and customer referees.
Companies must also guarantee that they will remain up to date with current thinking and developments, and ensure that individuals have sufficient access to personal development and study.
The CIOB is the world’s largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership, and is a worldwide community. In 1834, they were assigned a Royal Charter (which commits them to working in the public interest) to promote the science and practice of construction to benefit society, and they are 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 improvement of the industry, and their accreditations are a mark of competency and professionalism, offering reassurance to customers and partners.
“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.”
Their aim is 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 with the introduction of their new app “CIOB Connect.” Available on Google Play and Apple Store, the app helps to connect members across the globe, as well as providing up to date construction news, training videos and research resources.
The CIOB also recognise 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 also 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.
We are honoured to be associated with this prestigious professional body.
