Applications for both full and associate membership should be directed to the Chief Executive, Graham Watts, who will advise on eligibility. All applications are considered by the Council and membership becomes effective at the beginning of the quarter that follows the relevant Council meeting (January / 1 April/ 1 July/ 1 September)

Full Membership

By agreement of the Council, Full Members, who will be eligible for representation on Council, will be admitted to membership, provided that they are:

  • Professional Institutions, whose members are actively involved in planning, procuring, designing, constructing, regulating, maintaining or managing the built environment; either holding a Royal Charter or with independent status; and qualifying individuals in any of these various disciplines. Associations representing individuals in senior managerial roles, whose members are predominantly already qualified members of professional bodies, will also be deemed to be eligible for membership;
  • Business Associations which represent professional and specialist services;
  • Research and/or Education organisations that serve the built environment, the construction industry and its clients;
  • Other Organisations that are primarily concerned with quality, regulation, registration and standards within the built environment.

As agreed by Council, each Full Member will have two seats on Council but each Professional Institution, holding a Royal Charter, will have up to three seats.

Associate Membership

Organisations within the construction industry which speak for a defined group - or groups - of members, but are not eligible for admission as a Full Member of Council, may be admitted as Associate Members.
