Webinar - Smoothing the Road to Recovery

10 Jun
Wednesday 10th June 2020

Constructing Excellence South West, Constructing Excellence in Wales and Constructing Excellence Midlands are combining to look at ways of aiding the road to recovery for construction as we emerge on the other side of lockdown.

The Construction Leadership Council has published its Roadmap to Recovery document which reflects a lot of the values of the Constructing Excellence movement. But to be put into effect it needs buy in from the whole supply chain – particularly the clients. Construction needs educated, enlightened and informed clients to agree to a set of behaviours and be aligned with best practice values for us all to advance on the road to recovery.

That’s why we want to review and update the Clients’ Commitments Best Practice Guide so that it complements the CLC’s Roadmap to Recovery document published on 1st June.

We want to hear your views. How should clients behave? How can clients impact the Roadmap to Recovery? Clients come in all shapes and sizes – from the commissioning client to the contractor buying materials and sub-contracting services. We all play a part as a collaborative partner in the construction process.

Join us for a Zoom Webinar on 10th June at 11am. We will hear from BEIS about the Roadmap to Recovery and also the author of the 2014 Clients’ Commitments, Robert Knight, our former chair of CESW. The planned format will be:
