Our membership will better enable us to achieve our strategic objectives for our urban property portfolio, in particular improving biodiversity and our approach to the circular economy.  Being a CIRIA member also provides us access to ground breaking industry guidance and opportunities to learn directly from peers with a similar forward looking mind-set on these and other critical construction issues.”

Dirk Vennix, Chief Executive, CIRIA commented; “We are delighted to welcome Grosvenor to the family of CIRIA members. The team is looking forward to working with them on driving the built environment sector forward in raising standards and implementing good practice in the environment.  Our upcoming guidance and activities will benefit in particular from their sector leading contributions in biodiversity, green infrastructure, resource efficiency and facilities management.”

CIRIA’s members come from all stakeholder groups and cover both the supply and demand side of the industry, as well as the public sector, regulators and academia.  

Membership is made up of organisations of all sizes.  In 2018 CIRIA welcomed  Barratt Homes, Laing O’Rourke, Transport Scotland and the University of Newcastle into membership.  In the 12 months since we launched our MICRO membership for organisations with a turnover of up to £20m for contractors, or up to 50 staff for consultancies, we have also welcomed 11 smaller organisations into membership, ranging from specialist environmental consultancies to suppliers and manufacturers entering the UK market.
