The Construction Leaders' Summit 2021: Building Better - The agenda

This one-day online event was for anyone involved in the design, supply, and construction of the built environment, looking to learn about and discuss the future of the construction and how we can help improve it.

Sustainability and climate change are huge topics for this summit. In this unmissable event, our industry experts shared their thoughts and actions on how we can improve the sustainability of the built environment and with COP26 coming up they'll be discussing how the construction industry can respond to the climate emergency.

As well as sustainability we talked about digitisation. Ten years on from BIM being mandated on construction projects, we heard from the key team that made BIM part of Government policy.
