Feedback from the previous presentation on this subject on the 11th of December, suggested the audience were disappointed that there was not enough time for discussion at the end of the presentations. So, Steve Green has agreed to re-run his presentation from the Contractors perspective, but with a deeper dive into the magnitude of costs the Government anticipate the Industry incurring as a result of implementing the draft Bill. These additional costs amount to an average of £84,000 for a typical in-scope project. This will be closer to £100,000 if the firms involved are not currently operating at BIM level 1! There are also anticipated savings as a result, which should reduce the impact. Learn the Governments assessment of where these costs and benefits will come.
The evaluation and demonstration of the competence of the individuals involved in projects is a key part of the bill, aimed at bringing about the significant change in the culture of the construction industry that is required.
The Get It Right Initiatives (GIRI) stated goal is “to create a working culture that gets it right from the start, and engages all stakeholders in eliminating error from inception, to completion”. The GIRI approach therefore offers an “off the shelf” means of training and testing the quality behaviour of the industry from Business Leaders, through Design Teams to Supervisors and Managers. To explore this potential further, we are pleased to be joined by Damian Leydon FICE MCIOB Director, Sunergos Partnership Ltd and GIRI Board Member. Damian will explain how the ethos of GIRI, combined with the inhouse GIRI Training Consultancy (GTC) can offer the industry a tried and tested route to improving behavioural quality across the construction industry.
The presentations will last no more than 30 – 40 minutes leaving plenty of time for a hopefully lively Q&A and discussion. Richard Cymler of Ball & Berry, who also presented previously, will also join the panel to field any questions on the Bills impact leading up to handover.
