CDEC, Council for the Economic Development of Construction, was created in 2008 by the Group of Entrepreneurs and the Federation of Construction and Civil Engineering Companies. This non-profit organization aims to lead an integrated strategy for the sector, in order to bring all its players towards sustainable competitiveness.
To carry out this objective, and give entrepreneurs the means to achieve it, CDEC has based its strategy on 5 major pillars: Finances-Training-Certification and Engineering-Innovation-Promotion of the sector.

In concrete terms, each pillar is supported by a dedicated entity or project offering various services and tools to companies in the sector.
