G4C is part of Constructing Excellence, and we share joint aims. Following CE’s lead in collaborative practice we seek to harness the power of new people in the industry to make changes for the better and improve the way we work together. We are open to anyone looking to join the industry, or in the early stages of their career in the built environment sector.

This newly established Tees Valley network meet bi-monthly to plan G4C initiatives and events through which we communicate to our peer group.


“To become the organisation that is the driving force for industry change, through the development and connection of the future industry leaders”

This will be done by targeting three themes:

  • People – Attracting, effectively developing, connecting and retaining the necessary people required to drive change
  • Sustainability– Equipping members with the necessary skills to drive the industry and wider society towards a sustainable future
  • Asset Outcomes – Supporting the industry’s transformation from process driven to asset driven solutions aligned to client and wider society needs (focused on outcomes)

We also have an active group set up in the North East with others being established in Wales, London and other areas of the UK.
