The Civil Engineering Contractors Association represents the full range of UK infrastructure contractors, from the very largest multinational companies through medium-sized and regional firms down to smaller specialist and local companies.

CECA research indicates that the majority of the issues that have an impact upon the industry affect companies equally, regardless of their size.

However there are a number of issues that are of particular importance to small and medium-sized members.

For this reason CECA continues to provide continuing support to members to address these concerns. In recent years this has included working with the Cabinet Office's Crown Commercial Representative for SME firms to help the government to understand the concerns of smaller civil engineering companies.

CECA also works with major public sector bodies including the Highways Agency and Nuclear Decommissioning Authority to help improve their engagement with smaller firms.
