Providing support to those facing challenges
Stephen Good, CSIC chief executive, said: “These are challenging times indeed for the built environment sector, and a crisis it could have well done without. But businesses are tackling the situation head-on with innovation playing a key role in turning things around.
“The need to think and do things differently at this time goes deeper than quick-fix solutions. More than ever it is essential that industry partners collaborate, innovate and co-create solutions that will help the entire sector adapt and find new ways of working to ensure a full recovery.
“We created the i-Con initiative to provide support to those facing challenges, and this series of webinars will offer knowledge, expertise and advice to help accelerate essential and much-needed change.
“This will help reset and restart the industry, sharing best practice that will ensure the health of our workforces, and also support the delivery of future growth in the built environment sector.”
