Hannah Vickers, chief executive of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) responds:
“I would like to welcome Anne-Marie Trevelyan to the role of Construction Minister and look forward to meeting her as soon as possible.
“When we do meet I will stress how important our industry is as a catalyst for recovery, an enabler of government ambitions around levelling-up, and key to society’s Net Zero future.
“Given the broad range of issues our industry touches upon, it will take time to fully appreciate the comparative complexity of our sector. We stand ready to help in any way possible and look forward to a long and close working relationship.”
