Mitigating Rising Costs in Construction



The built environment has been hit by many challenges in recent years and the rising costs of energy, materials, and skill shortages have impacted significantly on projects and are proving a huge challenge for contractors, clients, and all other project stakeholders. The UK construction costs are up 24.5% (March 2021-March 2022).

In this webinar two industry experts, Alex Hurn, MD at Sillence Hurn Building Consultancy talks from an industry point of view, covering market trends, ways to help with controlling costs, how procurement can help and what might be on the horizon. He is then followed by a legal perspective from Cesare McArdle, Legal Director at Herrington Carmichael, on what, if anything, can be done from a contractual point of view.

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.
