The BECi 20:20 Lecture Series: Construction 2025 – The impact of the Government Construction Strategy

22 October 2013

If you're 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 is a sequence of lunchtime sessions to discuss current topics relating to the Built Environment. Over the course of the next academic year five of these sessions will take place, investigating the Government’s updated construction strategy and how it affects built environment professionals working today.

All sessions run between 1pm and 2:30pm and will be held in MG14, Marylebone Campus. The format is based on a 20-minute presentation followed by 20 minutes of Q&A.
