The association accepts sub-sector associations and stakeholder organisations along with construction material producers as members, to expand the sector and establish a union of forces.

IMSAD manages industry-specific projects, issues reports and also leads projects funded by the European Commission on topics like sustainability, innovation and R&D, legislation & regulations, resource and energy efficiency, circular economy etc. With 16 committees and working groups, sectoral reports, guides and dictionaries are prepared. IMSAD is the first sector-specific association that prepared "Sustainability Reports" according to the GRI4 format in the world.

The International Quality in Construction Summit, organized annually by IMSAD starting from the year 2009, has become one of the most important activities of the industry, as the most effective knowledge, vision and idea-sharing platform.

Bearing in mind digitalisation’s importance for the construction industry, IMSAD is also the buildingSMART Turkiye Chapter of buildingSMART International, which is the worldwide industry body driving the digital transformation of the built asset industry.
