WEBINAR: Data - the foundation of construction transformation

A business webinar, organised in partnership with Atkins.

A special business webinar organised with Atkins on the importance of data and its key role in construction transformation.

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced the construction sector to think differently, embrace digital and accelerate its transformation to a more technological driven and digital industry. Senior decision makers and clients also want to see digital innovations from the design, engineering and consultancy sector to help support their organisations and it's clear that data will be a crucial part of this change.

Building on the conclusions of a successful industry roundtable held on this issue last October, this webinar organised in partnership with Atkins, will drill down into the debate about data, access to data and the importance of sharing data, to discuss and debate how the industry can realise the full potential of construction's digital transformation.

WEBINAR: Risky business

A business webinar, organised as part of our new 2021 Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events.

The Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events kicks off its 2021 programme on Friday 29 January 2021 with a webinar looking at risk management in the construction and infrastructure sector.

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect companies in all sectors across the UK, we explore the ways that construction businesses can prepare for future risks. Firms face many risks – financial, operational, regulatory, reputational and cyber security to name just some. While no construction project or business can ever be risk free, risk can be managed, minimised, shared, transferred, or accepted. What it cannot be is ignored.

This webinar will highlight the latest thinking around risk management, including insurance and legal issues affecting the construction and infrastructure sector. Speakers will include legal and insurance experts as well as construction professionals who will share their experience of best practice on how to minimise risk.

Get the low-down on risk management in the construction sector by attending this webinar, which is organised in association with our Events and Communications Strategic Partner, BECG.

WEBINAR: The future of cities

A business webinar, organised as part of our new 2021 Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events.

The Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events continues on Friday 26 February 2021 with a webinar looking at the future of cities in a post-Covid world.

In just a few short months the Covid-19 pandemic dramatically changed city life. Millions of office workers quickly shifted to working from home, city centre footfall plummeted and sales in the retail and hospitality industries fell dramatically – putting millions of local service jobs at risk.

The number of people using public transport also fell, causing financial problems for city transport authorities. The ease that many people have found working from home and continuing worries about the safety of public transport and busy city centres have prompted many commentators to question the future of cities in a post-Covid world.

So, what does the future hold for cities and the people living and working in them? And, crucially, what does this mean for a construction and infrastructure sector that plans and designs them? 

Find out about the latest thinking on how cities will be planned, designed and lived in as we face up to a post-Covid world by attending this webinar, which is organised in association with our Events and Communications Strategic Partner, BECG

ONLINE CONFERENCE: Social value and construction

An online conference, organised as part of our new 2021 Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events.

The Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events continues on Friday 26 March 2021 with an online conference looking at one of the hottest topics facing the construction sector - social value.

Social value is increasingly being highlighted as a crucial requirement on construction and infrastructure projects and more and more clients are asking for the companies they work with to quantify the social good they can deliver on projects. However, social value comes in many different guises and many organisations still do not understand what it is, how to create it and how to measure it.

How often does the industry ask itself this question: What is the purpose of infrastructure? For social scientists, the question is an easy one to answer. The primary purpose of infrastructure and the built environment is serving the needs of communities, delivering better social outcomes and improving the quality of people’s lives.

But how good is our industry at putting people and their needs at the very heart of the way in which we design and deliver projects? What can we do to ensure that infrastructure is maximising all the opportunities available to it to leave a positive social legacy for the communities in which we work?

This conference, organised in association with Infrastructure Intelligence's Events and Communications Strategic Partner, BECG, will take a deep dive into the issue of social value and construction and look to map a way forward that can future-proof projects for generations to come and help to deliver a social legacy for construction and infrastructure as well as a technical one.

WEBINAR: Diversity, inclusion and encouraging the next generation

A business webinar, organised as part of our new 2021 Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events.

The Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events continues on Friday 30 April 2021 with a webinar looking at diversity and inclusion in the construction industry and what we need to do to encourage the next generation. 

As the designers of society’s future, the construction industry is better-placed than many others to appeal to the next generation of talent and make the most of its pivotal role in shaping projects that change lives. The industry has a unique appeal which can meet the emerging generation’s strong sense of purpose and values, but companies and workplaces need to become more diverse and promote inclusion if the industry is to attract and promote the leaders of the future.

The construction sector has particular challenges around diversity. 14% of the UK’s population classifies as BAME but only 1.2% of the built environment sector is BAME. Given that the role of planning and the building industry should be to create diverse and inclusive communities, the sector should be reflective of this. So, why there is a lack of ethnic diversity in the construction sector? What are the main prejudices faced by ethnic minorities in the property and construction industry? And, what can individuals and companies do to start addressing this?

This webinar will explore how the industry makes the necessary changes to ensure that it attracts and retains talent and becomes the sector of choice for the business leaders of tomorrow and crucially explore how can make the industry more attractive to talented professionals from diverse backgrounds.

Join the debate on how we create a more diverse and inclusive construction industry by signing up to this webinar, which is organised in association with our Events and Communications Strategic Partner, BECG

WEBINAR: The future of transport

A business webinar, organised as part of our new 2021 Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events.

The Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events continues on Friday 28 May 2021 with a webinar looking at the future of transport in the aftermath of the Covid crisis. 

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a drastic effect on the transport sector. Aviation has been decimated and the rail industry is a shadow of its former self, with the government intervening in the UK to keep it afloat. Net zero and concerns about sustainability and air pollution are causing governments to look afresh at transport and it’s likely that 2021 will be a pivotal year for the sector.

So, what will the future of transport look like? What lessons can be learned internationally and what skills and technologies will be needed to address the coming challenges? This webinar will try and provide some answers.

WEBINAR: Placemaking and the levelling up agenda

A business webinar, organised as part of our new 2021 Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events.

The Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events continues on Friday 25 June 2021 with a webinar looking at the placemaking and how this can contribute to the government's efforts to close the north-south divide. 

In a post-Covid environment, the emergence of a ‘new normal’ means that development models now need to be reassessed to ensure that new homes are spacious, light and airy, and that people are able to go shopping, spend time in nature or to see a doctor within a 10-15-minute walk from home. Placemaking is more important than ever before and the importance of access to public open spaces, better infrastructure and greater engagement and understanding of existing local communities is crucial.

This webinar will explore the concept of placemaking and what this also means for the government’s ‘levelling up’ agenda as it seeks to redress the economic imbalance between north and south.

WEBINAR: Combating climate change internationally

A business webinar, organised as part of our new 2021 Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events.

The Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events continues on Friday 24 September 2021 with a webinar looking at the international fight to combat climate change and the role of the infrastructure industry in that fight. 

Addressing the issue of climate change, the UN has said that it is “the defining issue of our time and we are at a defining moment”. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale.

It is clear that without drastic international action today, adapting to these impacts in the future will be more difficult and costly. The construction and infrastructure sector has a crucial role to play in the fight against climate change and without its active engagement the battle cannot be won. Internationally, where less wealthy nations will need extra help and innovation to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, the ingenuity and expertise of construction professionals will be pivotal.

As we approach the international COP26 conference, this webinar will look at the international battle to address climate change and what the world needs to do to win it. Find out more by booking your place at this webinar, which is organised in association with our Events and Communications Strategic Partner, BECG

WEBINAR: Influencing government and getting the industry's message across

A business webinar, organised as part of our new 2021 Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events.

The Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events continues on Friday 29 October 2021 with a webinar looking at how the construction and infrastructure industry can better influence government and MPs to get their message across to decision-makers. 

Government policy has a major influence on the infrastructure sector. But does the construction and infrastructure influence government effectively and is it getting its message across on the issues that matter? Crucially, is the government and opinion formers listening to what the industry has to say?

By providing insights into the political process - how policy develops, who matters, when they matter, the windows for influence and the messages that will resonate – this webinar will explore how the industry can be more effective at influencing government at all levels. By attending this webinar attendees will gain insights into how construction industry organisations can ensure their story matters to political audiences and that the policy environment supports their aims, enabling them to seize business opportunities and eliminating threats.

It has never been more important for infrastructure to communicate clearly and persuasively the benefits it brings to society and booking a place at this webinar will give you the insights that are needed to influence opinion formers at national, local and regional level.
