After an unprecedented period of change, the Constructing Excellence Conference is back. This hybrid event will look at the value construction brings and how we maximise that for the people that work in the industry, the society we serve and the planet that we live in.
Construction has demonstrated its value to the economy and society like never before through the COVID-19 pandemic. This conference will consider how we optimise that value. In line with our focus on putting words into action, we aim to provide insight into the art of the possible, inspire change and provide practical examples of implementation.

Value ourselves: Creating a supportive and healthy industry

Creating a culture that attracts the best talent and nurtures its people to perform at their very best is critical to the future success of the industry. We will look at those industries that have successfully implemented culture change and explore achievements within construction. In the context of a growing labour shortage, we will hear from Generation4Change (G4C) about what our target workforce want and need post-pandemic in order to feel valued.

Value our society: Levelling up

The construction industry and the built environment play a huge role in underpinning our society. It has been demonstrated clearly in the crucial role that the industry is playing in Building Back Better post-pandemic. We will be looking at how initiatives like the Value Toolkit help to maximise the value construction brings to our society and how MMC is being used to drive wider societal value.

Value our Planet: Our role in a sustainable future

As we move to Net Zero, construction and built environment has a huge role to play in enabling our current and future built environment to perform more sustainably. We will consider how the transition to net zero impacts our industry, the future trajectory and practical examples of projects, programmes and suppliers from the Constructing Excellence community who are leading the way in our Net Zero transition.
