Consultation is an essential aspect of the working methods of all levels of Government, aiming to provide opportunities for all those who wish to express their opinions on a proposed area of work to do so in ways which will inform and enhance that work.
SBF is involved in consultation exercises on behalf of the construction industry and related sectors across a broad range of policy areas.
We seek out opportunities to communicate industry priorities and concerns through a variety of mechanisms including written papers, oral evidence, public meetings, focus groups, survey questionnaires or public opinion polls.
In contributing to Government consultations, our aim is to inform and influence the process of policy development in ways that benefit the construction industry and the wider economy.
