Woodhead Construction has teamed up with Tim Whitehill of Project Five Consulting to run a mini-series of half-day CPD courses designed to increase sector wide understanding of how to deliver more greener and sustainable outcomes from construction projects, improve productivity through faster delivery, and get better by becoming a more resilient marketplace.
The courses have been developed in response to the Construction Playbook (December 2020) and the UK Government’s Plan for Growth, Build Back Better (March 2021) which both call for a need to deliver buildings and infrastructure projects better, greener, and faster. That means addressing longstanding challenges such as complex planning processes, slow decision-making, government capability and low productivity in the construction sector.
All courses in this miniseries are at a fundamentals level and will appeal to all professionals in the construction sector working in client, designer, and contractor organisations, who want to get ready to build better, greener, and faster, and to continue their professional development in these areas. The attendee fee is £75 per course, with a 20% early bird discount available until 30th April 2022 with the code ‘BBB20’ when booking.
