Summary

This report from the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) explores the effect of the ageing population on the construction industry, including the workforce, and the impact on the built environment.

Using qualitative inference and analysis, this report extrapolates the view of CIOB members who indicate that, despite legislative changes, awareness of the ageing population and its influence on the construction industry has slumped.
