Next Episode: Broken Buildings?

Join Stuart with leading construction experts on the next episode of #ConstructionCast on 12th October 2023, at 9 am.

RAAC, Cladding, School Collapses, Fire stopping, building control, PFI Hospitals… All have hit the headlines in recent years for the wrong reasons.

  • Is our procurement system broken?
  • Do we simply need to spend more?
  • Why do we seem to repeatedly make mistakes, particularly in public buildings?
  • What are the risks?
  • What redress is there?

And what needs to be done in future?

Join four outstanding panellists for our next Construction Cast. We’ll look at all these issues in the usual 30-40 minute chat, and you’ll get a chance to put your questions to the panel.

We look forward to seeing you.
