The GHA has helped to develop a seminar seminar session at the Ecobuild 2018 conference with GHA Chair Lynne Sullivan set to speak on the topic of quality in construction.
Following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower various investigative processes were set up and are still to report. Without pre-empting the outcomes it would be fair to say that there appear to be some systemic problems in the construction industry and that it is vital that the industry responds with a serious look at how it can improve standards and quality of design, delivery, compliance and enforcement, accountability while overcoming the performance gap in use. This is not only as a collective professional duty, but also necessary to instil confidence in the building users. Quality in construction and the built environment has an impact across a broad spectrum from environmental performance and resource stewardship to human health and well-being.
This session will explore the issues with a focus on housing, both new build and retrofit, for which the construction industry is now very challenged to deliver with long term quality and value.
GHA board members David Adams and Emma Davies will also speaking at the show. Click here to find out more.
