  • About the Confederation

  • History

The Confederation of Construction Specialists supports the financial and contractual objectives of construction specialists within the UK Construction sector.

For over 30 years the Confederation of Construction Specialists has been supporting construction specialist companies. By providing training, professional advice and contractual guidance, the Confederation of Construction Specialists enables specialist companies to optimise the ways in which they operate contractual arrangements when dealing with main contractors or clients.

Today’s complex business climate requires a strong, well informed and sustainable position from which to establish equitable business relationships. Achieving such relationships, under fair and equitable terms and conditions, is a fundamental element in winning sustainable contracts.

The Confederation of Construction Specialists  provides a focused, influential and strong voice in support of the interests of specialist companies. With representation in Government and Industry and formal participation in positive campaigns for greater fairness and apportionment of financial and contractual risk across all specialist trades.

The Confederation of Construction Specialists provides members with industry leading, focused and proven training courses, addressing all elements of contractual risk from our initial ‘Introduction to Contracts’ course through to our BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Construction Dispute Avoidance. Further courses cover core elements of successful contract management, and negotiation best practice.

The Confederation of Construction Specialists (CCS) was founded in 1983 to provide much needed support to a beleaguered community of construction specialist companies whom were suffering gross iniquities and blatant contractual abuse exercised by many main contractors in their trading relationship with specialist contractors.

Through, campaigning, the development of training courses and the sharing of legal and contractual experience, the Confederation of Construction Specialists has supported its members in understanding and responding to contracts and the associated terms and conditions proposed by main contractors. The Confederation of Construction Specialists has always been seeking to create a more level, fair and equitable playing field in contractual relationships.

Training courses are now available for non-members as the Confederation of Construction Specialists pursues the enhancement of contractual relationships throughout the whole of the specialist construction sector.
