OneVoice

OneVoice

Officially launched in 2020, the OneVoice construction strategy aims to build a successful, sustainable and inclusive construction industry, equipped with the people and technology to deliver a carbon neutral built environment by 2050. The revised OneVoice action plan allows for a shift in focus as a result of the pandemic and changing attitudes in the industry.

The overarching aim is ensuring that North East England is recognised as a beacon of best practice.

The OneVoice action plan will focus on three integrated themes to drive cultural change - climate, people and value.

OneVoice strategy

A five-year strategic plan setting out how we will commence transformational change considering four key themes.

OneVoice action plan

Revised for 2021 – 2023, simplifying the OneVoice focus on three key themes that will deliver at a regional level, a renewed industry ambition to address the climate emergency, develop and support our people, and create the right environment for value in construction to flourish.

OneVoice has been developed by an influential consortium driving the construction sector forward, as we aim to make North East England a beacon of best practice. Construction Industry Council North East (CIC), Constructing Excellence in the North East (CENE), Construction Alliance North East (CAN) and Generation for Change (G4C) form its steering group.

As we focus on three integrated themes to drive cultural change – climate, people and value we will also be working with the North East England Construction Industry and its stakeholders. Over 80 individuals and organisations have put their weight behind the campaign, which sets out the key themes and activity the regional construction sector is committed to, in order to move forward together.

OneVoice will work with the Local Enterprise Partnerships to attract, develop, retain, reward and celebrate the North East talent pool and it is encouraging stakeholders and clients to recognise value over cost to drive a better built environment and ensure a confident supply chain.
