This year’s Constructing Excellence Annual Conference marks 20 years since the release of Sir John Egan’s Rethinking Construction. This report combined with Sir Michael Latham’s Constructing the Team provided the foundations for the Constructing Excellence Movement, aiming to deliver Excellence through Collaboration.
In 1998 we were industry characterised by low margins, poor investment in capital and R&D and a skills shortage due to our inability to attract the best talent. Moreover, procurement was led by price, not value, projects were unpredictable on time, cost and quality and much of the sector was extremely fragmented.
So how much has changed? On the surface that characterisation of the industry remains valid. However, the Constructing Excellence movement is leading the way, demonstrating tangible the tangible benefits of working collaboratively. This year’s conference will take an in-depth look at how the core Constructing Excellence values of clients procuring for value, standardisation and pre-manufactured value and digitally-enabled collaboration can be applied at a broader level across the industry.
Confirmed speakers include Phil Wilbraham – Heathow and CE Co-Chair, Ahmad Al Ansari – Ashghal and Chair of CE in Qatar, David Whysall – Turner & Townsend and CE Co-Chair, Deirdre Fox – Tata Steel and Dr David Hancock – Infrastructure and Projects Authority.
The Construction Sector Deal is seeing unprecedented government investment and support for change in the sector and is in complete alignment with our vision. Join us on 12 December to find out how we can build on 20 years of industry leadership and maximise this unique opportunity for change.
