UK Construction Performance Groups and Metrics

Constructing Excellence

The Performance Measurement group has been working towards its goal of collating and coordinating best practice metrics from other group sources. To do this, they have been gathering information about the purpose, data collection and related standards of different working groups within performance measurement.

This information will be added to and updated regularly in order to signpost people towards different organisations, using different metrics and holding different standards.

CLC Metrics Group

To support and promote demonstrator projects to raise awareness with consumers, aid industry learning and demonstrate the benefits of smart construction.

To prove the business case for change, and the ability to demonstrate benefits through in-use performance data. Ongoing measurement and reporting of progress against the targets.

Data from across the housing sector ranging between 5%-100% for different data points.

Construction Data Trust

To transform the construction industry by unlocking the value in project data.Home | Construction Data Tr

To be the leading digital resource where organisations can collaborate to benchmark performance and unlock enterprise knowledge.

To join data from projects so that approved parties can leverage insights from it in a secure, access-controlled manner.

Any data that will be repeatably used to solve 3 big challenges, linked to UNSDGs:

  • Race to Net Zero
  • Improving Sector Health & Wellbeing
  • Economic growth & productivity.

They are seeking new projects. However, the existing projects are:

  • Commercial office productivity data linked to Construction Productivity Taskforce.
  • Environment Agency H&S data.



CO2nstructZero builds on the government’s commitments through the lens of our sector setting out how we can together meet the Net Zero challenge.


It uses the CCC’s 6th Carbon budget to establish the priorities that will frame our action plan and how we will measure and hold ourselves to account. Aims found here.

Data will be drawn from sources across construction which already aggregate it, known as data point owners.

Project and Business Metrics have been identified which align with the sector level indicators.

Metrics across:

  1. Transport
  2. Buildings
  3. Construction activity


Infrastructure and Project Authority (TIP)

To transform how government and industry intervene in the built environment to drive a step change in infrastructure performance.

Schedule, cost and risk data for major programmes


Construction Productivity Taskforce

To identify and trial new ways of making the sector more productive. The group brings together  leading figures in the construction industry – clients, contractors, supply chain and consultants– to undertake practical interventions designed to make the sector more productive.

The Construction Productivity Taskforce have produced a seven-step framework which can establish industry-wide productivity benchmarks or create productivity improvement studies across individual construction sites, work packages or specific construction tasks.

  • Planned vs. actual outputs
  • Works package productivity
  • Labour productivity
  • Production cycle times
  • Design deliverables to meet programme
  • Logistics metrics
  • Plant or equipment utilisation



Measuring social value to improve social impact of organisations’ work and understand the difference made to individuals.

UK Housing Data Standards

Building Better (NHF)

Building Better is an alliance of 31 housing associations and local authorities working together to build the highest quality and sustainable homes using Modern Methods of Construction. We collect a small but useful set of data that helps our members improve the lived experience for people living in our homes, using a mechanism that will improve the design and delivery of homes over time.

Metrics focused on customer experience and quality including customer comfort and perception of quality, operational carbon, energy use and efficiency, defects, delivery to project time and cost, Pre-Manufactured Value, and the costs to both heat and maintain the home in the longer term.



To analyse performance of the housing sector- including new-build, repairs and maintenance performance.

Housing sector cost, performance (including community measures), satisfaction data.

Bring together common procurement practices with metrics.

Information from relevant sources to collate and share metrics, standards and best practise.

Datasets and the organisations that hold them.

Examples of best practice to share with members and inform developments to metrics and measuring.


Construction Innovation Hub (or successor)

To drive desired outcomes by project.


Comparing Value Across England and Wales Report + Value toolkit

Social Value Taskforce

To establish a good practice framework to integrate the Public Services into the UK public sector and business community.
