The second in the series of our Construction Playbook webinars

On Friday 2 July we will be hosting our second webinar in partnership with Built Environment Networking exploring the Construction Playbook; Delivering Radical Transformation & Raising Standards Using the Construction Playbook.

The upcoming webinar follows on from the first in the series, which focused on deconstructing the key principles of the Playbook. Gerard Toplass, our executive chairman, played host to a number of experts as they assessed what the Construction Playbook may mean for the industry, concluding that cultural and behavioral change will be key, and this relies on adequate future-proof training.  

In the next installment, the panel will assess how the principles laid out in the document can be taken forward in practice and deliver on the government’s ambition to ‘build back better’. Key industry considerations such as ‘whole-life’ approach, social value, and levelling up will be under the spotlight and explored.



Joining Gerard will be Lord Bob Kerslake, non-executive chairman at Pagabo and chair at UK 2070 Commission; Nicola Thompson, national director of compliance and performance at Pick Everard; Rob Byrnes, head of frameworks at Vinci Construction UK.

The experts will demonstrate how their industry-leading organisations are delivering radical transformation and raising standards.

Earlier this year we announced our five-point pledge for delivering on The Construction Playbook’s principles. The pledge demonstrates how we are putting it into practice – outlining how we are implementing initiatives and practices that enable us to move with the times and plan for the future. 

Gerard said: “After the success of our first Construction Playbook webinar, we’re very excited for the second event taking place at the beginning of July. Although discussing the Playbook’s conceptual role in aiming to reset the public sector’s relationship with construction is very important, it is arguably more inspiring to explore how the industry is creating better outcomes for people, communities, and the planet through various innovative processes and practices.

The importance of collaboration cannot be understated and events like these offer a great platform for like-minded professionals to come together and drive the industry forwards. It could be easy to overlook the valuable recommendations within the Playbook, as they are only recommendations, but we’re keen to bring together those already implementing strategies of the future and make knowledge more accessible.

“With the online webinar being free to attend, it also allows us to invite anyone who may benefit from understanding the Construction Playbook on a deeper level.”
