Building Back Better

September 29, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

How can Cornish SMEs in construction and development be at the forefront of delivering meaningful change?


The UK national agenda to ‘Build Back Better’ and for this to be part of a ‘Green Recovery’ directs all of us across the built environment sector to deliver a genuine improvement in the quality of built environment which we create. But how is this deliverable? How can decision makers and all those in the industry from contractors to consultants, clients to end-users, design, fund and implement stronger outcomes for all?

Hosted by Tevi alongside Ward Williams Associates and Green&Blue, this session will bring this debate to a number of leading industry figures and seek to address how Cornish SMEs may well be perfectly placed to lead the charge – and bring forward a practical and deliverable means of delivering this vision.

An interactive Q&A session will be moderated by Tevi and aims to reconcile best practice approaches. If you have specific questions for our speakers, please email them to [email protected]
