Government to review engineering construction

Business Secretary Lord Mandelson and Skills Secretary John Denham have announced that their departments will conduct a review of productivity and skills in the engineering construction sector.

It will assess the state of productivity in engineering construction in the UK and identify the key inhibitors to productivity, including skills aspects — such as through Government procurement requirements — and identify specific factors influencing success for UK-based companies bidding for UK and foreign engineering construction projects. The review aims to establish if there is anything more Government or industry can do to ensure British companies succeed in winning and delivering engineering construction contracts in an increasingly competitive sector.
