Mott MacDonald’s Mark Enzer OBE has been appointed to the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) task force group, as part of a refreshed structure and renewed focus on the sector’s recovery and transformation.
Working with Anne Kemp OBE, Mark will lead the CLC’s digital network which will seek to facilitate and accelerate digital transformation in the UK’s built environment in order to improve industry performance and export potential. It will connect and coordinate digital activities and initiatives across all the workstreams.
The CLC task force group was set up in March this year to coordinate the construction sector’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has now become a formal part of the organisation’s structure and the task force remains at the centre of the continuing drive to lead and transform the industry. As part of the reorganisation, the task force group has been given responsibility for leading and co-ordinating the delivery of the sector’s “Roadmap to Recovery”, launched in June in response to the pandemic. The digital network has been established as part of the industry change initiative alongside workstreams for net zero carbon, manufacturing and performance and building safety.
Commenting on the refreshed CLC structure, Andy Mitchell, the CLC’s co-chair, said: “Intentionally larger in numbers than the previous structure, the new membership broadens our industry representation and reach into local regions, creating a CLC that better represents the three million people continuing to work in the industry, playing a vital role in driving the UK’s economy.
“The new structure places the CLC task force at the heart of the continuing drive to lead and transform the industry as set out in the CLC Industry Recovery Plan. To support the task force, a CLC senior advisors group has been established, along the lines of non-executives of a typical board. This group will provide an even wider representation of different parts of the industry, together with support, challenge and guidance.
“As we all know, there is a lot to do over the coming months including supporting industry through Covid-19 and EU transition and leading its transformation. We expect the new structure to remain in place during 2021, but we will be reviewing it next year, to determine a longer term structure and operating model for the CLC, to enable CLC to support and lead the construction industry into the future.”
