Engineering construction is the industry that looks after the UK’s critical infrastructure. Engineering construction companies design, construct and maintain the industry sites and process plants responsible for production of oil, gas, water and food, and power generation. The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) is an arms-length Government body that works to attract, recruit and train the skilled workforce required by the industry.
