UK Construction Minister headlines NBS’s event

March 2021

During the NBS’s Construction Leaders’ Summit 2021 - a free event that will be held online on 21st and 22nd April 2021 - the Rt Hon Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP, UK Construction Minister, will deliver a keynote speech on how regulation and political change will influence future policy.

At the same event, Simon Rawlinson, Member of the government’s Construction Leadership Council, Partner - Head of Strategic Research & Insight, Arcadis and Construction Playbook author will explore the Construction Playbook and its role in modern construction; while Gary Clark, Chair of the Sustainable Futures Group, Principal, HOK, will discuss architectural sustainability and the steps specifiers can take to achieve it within their projects.

The NBS platform aims to bring policymakers, industry experts, and decision-makers in construction, architecture, and digital transformation together.  The event will focus on building a sustainable future, regulatory changes, and the role of digital transformation in today’s construction industry.

‘The Construction Leaders’ Summit – ‘Building for the future’ is an exclusive two-day summit covering the benefits and challenges of digital transformation and how this can help improve building safety, innovation and sustainability within the construction sector. Attendees will leave with practical steps, enabling them to face the future with confidence.

Colin Smith, Executive Chairman, NBS, says, “Since the last Construction Leaders’ Summit, the landscape has shifted once again. Whilst the pandemic has forced the industry to pick up the pace in terms of digital adoption, there’s still a long road ahead. It now needs to build on the momentum it’s gained and realise the full benefits that digital has to offer in improving every aspect of the construction journey, be it building safety, innovation or sustainability.”

“Last year’s event brought some huge changes to the construction industry both in terms of perception and ethics and through this event, we want to review how it’s now responding. As always, we’ve brought together some of the best in the business to provide attendees with insightful guidance that should inspire them within their own line of work. The Construction Leaders’ Summit – ‘Building for the Future’ will not just assess how far we’ve come but more importantly, where we should go from here.”
