Blockchain Technology



In this webinar, Sorrella Smith talks about her research into Blockchain technology as one of the Sustainability Scholars* for 2019.

Sorrella is a Quality Manager at Laing O’Rourke and in her presentation she covers an understanding of Blockchain technology, including advantages/disadvantages and current examples, as well as discussing potential use cases for the technology within the UK construction industry.  Blockchain, frequently hailed as having potentially a greater impact than the invention of the internet, might have the potential to improve productivity, improve efficiencies and reduce costs.

*The Sustainability Scholarship is a joint scholarship between CIOB, Worshipful Company of Constructors (WCC), and University College of Estate Management (UCEM).

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
