About us

Our History

The CCLG is the only truly independent client group for private, public, and regulated clients - the recognised home for leading clients, offering the best value and lowest cost membership, open to organisations of all sizes with fees starting from £2000.


The CCLG started life as the Construction Clients’ Group in the early nineties as an independent client body representing both private and public clients. The Group is a not-for-profit organisation, funded by client members. At the start of 2017 the group evolved into what is now the Construction Clients’ Leadership Group (CCLG), to reflect the importance of the leadership dimension to commissioning construction services.

Investing in construction solutions remains one of the biggest investments a company or organisation can make. The CCLG is dedicated to assisting members in making such investments as efficiently as possible, with minimum risk and with a quality assured outcome that supports a sustainable industry.

Our Governance

The CCLG is led by an Executive Group, drawn from our members, meeting quarterly to oversee progress against our Business Plan. We organise four dinners each year to bring leading clients together to gain input and direction from the wider client base.  Each dinner plays host to leading industry figures as keynote speakers to explore how best we can support our members, the Construction Leadership Council and the HSE’s Help GB Working Well (HGBWW) strategy.


The CCLG has a thriving Best Practice Working Group which is open to any client wishing to share best practice and benchmark performance in areas where we can establish common data sets.
