A strong and united voice for Scottish construction
The building and construction industry is a key driver of the Scottish economy and one of the largest industrial sectors in Scotland. Our industry makes a major contribution to the generation of wealth, the creation of employment and the wellbeing of local communities, so it is important that we have a voice.
SBF continually monitors building and construction-related data released by the Scottish Government and the Office of National Statistics and we continue to champion the industry through media campaigns, policy consultations and by working with the Scottish Government, the Scottish Parliament, the Scotland Office, local government and others.
SBF continues to lobby across a wide range of issues, including apprenticeships and training, procurement, planning, infrastructure investment, housing, environment, health and safety, and employment.
