This event has passed.

This is a rare opportunity for an insight into a unique project with unique challenges. The finished project is only part of the story. Understand the residents perspective and how post war construction and late 90’s refurb impacted the design and delivery solutions. This will be a unique learning experience that will be very useful for those approaching similar projects.

This event will benefit anyone working in the construction and housing sector. Whilst this project was focused on improving the fire safety on three tower blocks in a post Grenfell era, the lessons learned about partnering and problem solving will benefit a wide range of professionals.

You will hear from the three principal partners (The Landlord and Building Owner, Consultant / Designer and the Principal Contractor) involved with the project. Learn how they worked together to address the challenges associated with refurbishing the 1960’s Tower blocks with the added challenge of a pandemic, material and labour shortages and unforeseen building defects to deliver a multi award winning project. Learn how they applied partnering principles to achieve the best outcomes in the most trying circumstances and how they delivered three iconic buildings back to the Plymouth skyline.
