ABOUT US

We’re the association for the UK’s professional consultancies and engineering companies operating in the social and economic infrastructure sectors.

The Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) champions infrastructure and the built environment to government and other stakeholders, representing the views of around 400 members.

Our members employ over 60,000 in UK and 250,000 worldwide, contributing more than £15 billion to the UK economy. However, the buildings they create actively contribute over £570 billion a year of GVA.

They have worked on some of our most high-profile infrastructure to date: Crossrail, Tideway, HS1 & 2, the Queensferry Crossing and Heathrow Terminals 2/3 and 5.

OUR VISION

For a political, economic and commercial environment that enables the consultancy and engineering businesses to thrive and make the world a better place.

OUR MISSION

We promote the interests of companies delivering professional services in the natural and built environment. We do this by bringing members together to share knowledge, experience and insight. This shapes our tangible business support, as well as our proactive engagement with policymakers across the UK.

OUR PURPOSE

Our members provide solutions to some of our biggest challenges – How do we design a Net Zero future? How do we create opportunity for communities across the devolved nations and level-up regions? How can we kickstart growth and jobs on a path to economic recovery? How can we deliver more social value?

HOW WE WORK

Our Board is responsible for the strategic direction and corporate development of the organisation and meets four times in a year. Members are representative of our membership body and a different chair is elected each year. Our Advisory Board provide ACE with key political and industry connections and meet twice a year.

ACE’s groups provide our members with local networking opportunities, help establish our opinion and policy and explore interests of critical importance to our members’ business interests, no matter their size.

 

We also encourage the next generation of engineers through Emerging Professionals and the Technical Apprenticeship Consortium (TAC).

The editorially independent magazine and website Infrastructure Intelligence, is produced by ACE for the industry.

Through our sister organisation, the Environmental Industries Commission (EIC), we are the voice of the green economy.
