Constructing Excellence Members’ Forum – Autumn 2015

Share This:

Details have just been released about this year’s members forum event which is taking place on 14th October at Pinsent Masons LLP in London.

Date: Wednesday 14 October 2015
Venue: Pinsent Masons LLP, 30 Crown Place, Earl Street, London EC2A 4ES
Timing: 12.30 – 4.30pm (including lunch)

This Members’ Forum will focus on our members’ theme groups and aims to help members get more value from these. Last year we held a similar event to showcase the groups and consult on any new topics which members felt should be theme groups. This year we again want to showcase the groups’ work, and attendees will hear about new outputs being launched from the Asset Management, Procurement and Collaborative Working groups. Other themes currently include Sustainability, BIM, Funding & Finance, and the Nuclear sector. Our objective is to improve members’ engagement with these themes, and to ask whether these are the right topics for 2016. We look forward to an interesting afternoon and hope as many members as possible will be able to attend.

Please note that, as usual, in the morning we will have a meeting of our members steering group. Each member is entitled to nominate a rep to attend these meetings, they are not a closed shop and new people are welcome at any time. The meetings are always in the morning of the forums (i.e. 3 per year), take 2 hours or so, and are where we develop and direct our work programme to add value for members. Please contact the office if you would like to attend or to be included in the distribution list for future meetings.

Please also note that our Annual Conference will take place at Lord’s cricket ground on 11 November. Each national member is entitled to two free places (additional places and non-members attract a fee). The theme will be learning from other industries, with speakers from IT and aerospace amongst others. You can book for the Annual Conference on EventBrite.

BREAKOUT SESSION “WHAT MATTERS ABOUT…”

Prior to the afternoon’s breakout session, attendees will be invited to add their thoughts to flipcharts on what is important to them about Asset Management, BIM, Collaborative Working, Funding & Finance, Nuclear, Sustainability and Procurement.During the breakout session, the Theme Group Chairs will each facilitate an individual session during which they give a brief update on their group, and use the flipchart data to prompt further discussion/ideas, and help to prioritise and shape the work plans for the next year. Attendees will be free to move amongst as many tables as they wish during the course of the session. There will also be a table for “Missing Theme Groups/New topics” for those who want to discuss or at least propose new topics for CE attention.

The RIBA Plan of Work and the role of the client

Share This:

After July’s hugely successful #ceyhawards , we are pleased to be returning from our summer break at the end of September to bring you our next set of ‘excellence’ breakfasts. This Autumn we will be facilitating a number of sessions exploring the different stages of the RIBA Plan of Work (PoW) through the lens of the key players involved.

First developed in 1963, the RIBA Plan of Work is the definitive UK model for the building design and construction process. The RIBA Plan of Work 2013 organises the process of briefing, designing, constructing, maintaining, operating and using building projects into a number of key stages, 0 through to 7 (8 stages in total).

Our first event in the series on 30th September will focus Stage 0 – Strategic Definition. We will open with CEYH Chair Tom Oulton who will deliver an overview of why the PoW empowers the client.This will be followed by Daving Hemming, Head of Estates for Leeds Beckett University, who will explain how the client benefits from identifying their requirements before the design process begins.

The role of the client and in particular the ‘intelligent’ client is cropping up more and more in discussions as we move towards a more collaborative working model and digitisation. How can we educate our clients and does the RIBA PoW help drive this? Are you are client wanting to understand more about your requirements and how they can be practically applied? Then come along on the 30th and join our discussion.
