Chartered Construction Manager

Chartered Construction Manager


CIOB corporate Members and Fellows have been proudly adding Chartered Builder to their business cards since the Institute gained its Royal Charter in 1980. But these days, only a small proportion of people in this complex sector actually build.

As a CIOB member you could be working with BIM or setting strategies for carbon reduction. You might be on site, but you could equally be sitting at head office, supervising teams and setting corporate strategy. And you could be working at any point within the life cycle of a structure, from inception to recycling.

If the designation Chartered Builder is not relevant to your day job, we have some great news. The Privy Council has granted the CIOB power to award the designation Chartered Construction Manager in addition to Chartered Builder. The Chartered Construction Manager designation has been available from March 2014 to Members (MCIOB) and Fellows (FCIOB) who register their interest.

This is the culmination of years of research and development by the Institute and the result of effective demonstration by CIOB members who have shown that construction management is truly a substantive and established profession. This designation signals the influence that professional construction managers have within, and beyond, the built environment.

We believe this will be beneficial to you in communicating your professional status to clients and colleagues. And of course you may retain the designation Chartered Builder if that is your preference. In that case you have nothing to do.

The new designation is available to current MCIOB/FCIOB who register their interest before 31st December 2014. Provided they do, they can use either designation, and this would not change after 2015.

If you are a MCIOB or FCIOB and would like to use the designation Chartered Construction Manager then go to register your interest at .
