About Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB)

The Chartered Institute of Building is the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership. Founded in 1834 in UK, the association currently has over 48,000 members worldwide.

Chartered members may use the designation MCIOB (Member) FCIOB (Fellow) and can be assigned as Chartered Builders or Chartered Construction Managers once they have demonstrated the required professional competence.

CIOB is the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership.  Accredited with a Royal Charter to promote the science and practice of building and construction for the benefit of society, CIOB members work worldwide in the development, conservation and improvement of the built environment. 


The organisation accredits university degrees, educational courses and training, with its professional and vocational qualifications being the mark of the highest levels of competence and professionalism, providing assurance to clients and other professionals procuring built assets.

About Chartered Membership Programme (CMP)

The CMP is a progression route to full Corporate membership of the CIOB with the right to use the designation MCIOB. It is designed for candidates that typically have 5 years experience within the built environment with experience of managing people, processes and technology.

We recognise that there are many people in the sector who have gained the requisite knowledge and management skills to merit CIOB membership, though they may not have the full academic qualifications.

Construction professionals who fall into this category can instead work towards becoming full chartered members (MCIOB) through a structured programme designed to help experienced construction professionals demonstrate their competence. It combine elements of study too, to help candidates develop a strong understanding of the principles of construction management.
