Welcome to the second of our days of learning and opportunities for professional development that the Yorkshire Region of CIAT is hosting in conjunction with Leeds Beckett University. We continue to make freely available value added presentations given by knowledge rich presenters on topical subject areas within the construction industry; a collection of which we consider you could not find anywhere else.
Building on the unprecedented success of our inaugural event in June 2015, this year we have managed to secure the services of two speakers whose names are instantly recognisable as major players within the realm of UK building design and construction.
Peter Caplehorn will open the day with his Keynote presentation on the challenges that face the profession and the wider industry. If you have heard Peter speak before, or even if you haven’t, this is not one to miss. To get the day back on track after lunch Richard Saxon will offer his unique experienced brand in presenting how Building Information Modelling will be influencing a Digital Built Britain as we work towards level 3.
Our thanks go to our event supporters, RIBA, CIOB, RICS, CIBSE, CABE, ICE, and Centre for Knowledge Exchange at Leeds Beckett University. We also offer a big thank you to the event sponsors, without whom it could not happen; Knauf Insulation, Graphisoft, Beattie Passiv, LABC, Minerva Appointments, Leeds Beckett University and CIAT Yorkshire.
