Share This:


At our last CE breakfast event before our summer break, we will be tackling one of the key principles of the Constructing Excellence movement and 2025 strategy; collaboration, collaboration, collaboration. Collaborative approaches have been shown to deliver a wide range of benefits which enhance competitiveness and performance (better cost management, improved time, resource utilisation and innovation to name but a few!).

We will hear from Kier Construction, last year’s Integration and Collaborative Working Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire and Humber awards champions who will be talking about their winning project, a unique 12 year long collaboration with York NHS teaching hospitals. This presentation will cover how and what makes it a success and the continued and ongoing development of the relationship.

We will also here from Teal Consulting who will present on the BS11000 standard which provides a framework for full supply chain collaboration ensuring relationships are effective and optimised. BS 11000 shows how to eliminate the known pitfalls of poor communication by defining roles and responsibilities, and creating partnerships that do nothing but add value to your business.

So come along and find out how you can work better together!
