BECI 20:20 Lunchtime Lecture Series Presents: Collaboration: Will it work in the UK Construction Industry?
Ian Cannings introduces us to current thinking on collaboration, in particular the UK Government’s approach and the recently published British Standard BS 11000.
Ian will propose that the UK Construction Industry needs to better understand the concept of collaboration and how this relates to other concepts, particularly integration.
As with all the lectures in the series, it will also reference the UK Government’s 2025 Business Industrial Strategy dated July 2013.
Original Lecture: 30 January, 1pm, MG14, Marylebone.
