Responding to Housing Forum Members concerns that practice improves following the Grenfell Tower tragedy, this key report provides a range of recommendations to address the “significant minority” of residential projects which have serious defects.
Authored by a working group of expert professionals from across the sector - led by Andy Tookey, Managing Partner at multi-disciplinary practice Baily Garner and Nigel Ostime, Delivery Director at Hawkins Brown Architects - the publication urges a collaborative approach to improve quality and workmanship on residential projects.
The study echoes some of the findings of a recent ‘call for evidence’ from the Chartered Institute of Building on quality across the construction industry, which highlighted concerns around areas including workmanship, supervision and sign off. Scroll down to read the full article.
The report - Stopping Building Failures: How a Collaborative Approach can Improve Quality & Workmanship – will be officially launched on Wednesday 23 May at The Housing Forum’s 2018 National Conference: Building the Future.
Limited delegate spaces are still available for The Housing Forum’s National Conference.
