ConSIG Structure

The ConSIG consists of a Steering Committee and a number of working groups.

Our Steering Committee (SC) is made up of select quality specialists from various disciplines and organisations and oversees the activities of the group.  Members also work jointly together to arrange events, provide expert advice, and establish and maintain relationships with other organisations both within and external to the construction industry.

Our working groups are set up to complete a specific task or tasks where an opportunity for improvement is identified.
