Collaboration is key is the outcome of Institute hosted panel at Futurebuild

Policing the industry, leaving the ego at home and greater collaboration are the outcomes of a CIAT hosted Panel at Futurebuild yesterday

Alex Naraian PCIAT was the Chair of a panel discussion yesterday, hosted by CIAT, with presidents and representatives from fellow Institute’s to discuss and form a collaborative response to core issues in the sector.

The Panel focused on the Hackitt Report and themes around issues in the built environment sector. The agreed outcome was for greater collaboration, the industry needs to be policed and 'to leave the ego at home'.
