Executive Director, Get It Right Initiative
In 2015 a number of UK construction industry companies together with the CITB supported a research project into the costs and causes of avoidable error in UK construction. Among other things, the results suggest that we are spending between 15% and 25% of total project costs dealing with the consequences of avoidable error.
The seminar will set out the background to the research and then explain how 56 organisations including well-known clients, contractors, designers, insurers and technology providers have joined together as the Get It Right Initiative (GIRI). This has the strategic aim of improving construction productivity and quality by eliminating error.
We will explain how the initiative is meeting its goals which are to:
We will discuss the Guide to Improving Value by Reducing Design Error published by the Get It Right Initiative and in particular how the principles set out in the design guide are relevant to the industry as a whole.
We will also discuss GIRI’s proposals for raising the profile of getting it right by developing a universally-accepted metric for measuring error.

This is the first in a series of online workshops designed to give Graduate Members practical examples and expert feedback as they work towards becoming chartered. They are led by experienced engineers who have gone through or are currently going through the chartered process.
A five session course delivered by industry experts to develop in-depth knowledge of health, safety, and welbeing in civil engineering within the UK.
Digital transformation is crucial for sustainable workplaces in construction. BIM professionals will share the impact of digital transformation on sustainable workplace design, government policies promoting BIM adoption, and real-life examples of its benefits.
