BSI Construction Forum

About the event

The committee CB/- ‘Construction and Built Environment Sector Policy and Strategy Committee’ was set up in the summer of 2007 to increase the impetus and refresh construction policy and standards in order to fully take advantage of market driven standards. This event officially launched the committee to the industry.

This new refreshed approach to construction reached beyond technical issues to include process issues of key importance to the construction sector and the built environment.

The event was well attended by BSI Construction committee chairmen/members, and representatives of industry, professional institutions and Government departments
