CEEC (Conseil Européen des Economistes de la Construction or The European Council of Construction Economists) is the European knowledge hub for construction economists. CEEC links professionals in Europe to share relevant best practice, information and experience and promotes the profession of the construction economist, common knowledge and international standards.

With the built environment responsible for around 40% of the global carbon emissions, it is crucial that sustainable practices are adopted to achieve net-zero ambitions. 50 globally prominent organisations, including CEEC and its members in several European countries have worked to develop ICMS-3, a new edition of International Cost Management Standard including capital costs, life cycle costs and carbon emissions. The ICMS-3 allows their interrelationship to be explored, and provides the data to make decisions about the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the built environment that optimises environmental sustainability.
To ensure the standard is fit for purpose a consultation is launched for professionals globally to feed into. The consultation closes on 10 September 2021, with the final document ready for publication later in the year. All stakeholders in the construction and infrastructure sectors can comment on the draft standard.
On 6 May maneco and CEEC organised a webinar on International Collaboration with over 30 attendees from 17 countries. There were presentations on diverse subjects from ICMS and mapping of the Swiss Standard eBKP-H to ICMS to cost comparison for 3D concrete printing and a redevelopment project in The Netherlands . All presentations are here available for download. On the Friday afternoon the CEEC General Assembly took place.
CEEC has conducted a survey among its members into the construction cost standards used in the relevant countries. The results were presented by the working group led by Erik Schulte Fischedick during the CEEC-webinar, organised by maneco on Thursday 6 May 2021.

For more than ten years CEEC and the Canadian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (CIQS) have been meeting eachother at various meetings around the world. During this years a strong bond developed and a delegation of the board of CIQS have been coming regularly to the meetings of CEEC. So at the PAQS-meeting in Malaysia in August 2019 it was further investigated how both parties could strengthen their bond. This resulted in a proposal for affiliate membership of CIQS that was ratified during the virtual General Assembly of CEEC in May 2020. CIQS is the premier professional association that sets the highest standard for construction and infrastructure economics in Canada. With the membership both parties pursue to continue collaborate/participation in like‐minded goals and activities of both associations.
Two times a year we meet eachother in a beautiful European city.
