If you are a student at ABE or WBS who works or would like to work in the built environment, either as a professional or academic practitioner, you need up-to-date knowledge of the Government Construction Strategy.

The BECi (Built Environment Collaboration & Integration) 20:20 Series of presentations will look at these developments, including the aim to reduce the costs of public sector construction projects by 15 to 20 per cent, as well as BIM and carbon reduction.

You can find out more about BECi and the 20:20 Series on the BECi blog.

Book a place at one, or all, of the presentations in the series on the 20:20 Series page on the blog.
