In March, the RIBA, along with its partners RICS and CIOB, launched the 'Building in Quality' initiative, which aims to introduce a simple, straightforward system for documenting and tracking risks to quality through the life of a construction project.

The aim of the Tracker is to help us establish a beneficial link between client and end-users through a chain of custody for quality, for the benefit of society. We have gathered expert, cross-disciplinary commentary from 100 volunteer consultees involved in the UK construction industry with a view to developing the Tracker and launching a pilot later this year.
