GIRI is a group of industry experts, organisations and businesses dedicated in eliminating error and improving the UK construction industry.More about us
Error is costing the construction industry between £10–25 billion per annum across the sector. To improve quality and productivity we need to engage leadership and change attitudes.Our strategy
We want to create a working culture that gets it right from the start, and engages all stakeholders in eliminating error from inception, to completion.What we'll achieve
Key international studies suggest that the direct cost of avoidable error is in the order of 5% of project value. Our research has revealed that the true figure is closer to 21% or £21 billion per annum.
GIRI’s research, carried out by its study group and members of their supply chains, revealed that when unrecorded process waste, latent defects and indirect costs are included, the situation gets much worse. Estimates of the total cost of errors ranges between 10% and 25% of project cost or between £10–25 billion per annum across the sector.Find out more in our reports
