CIC Inclusive Environment Briefings

The Inclusive Environment Briefings (IE Briefings), is a new CIC initiative for 2018, which provides regular technical and policy updates; with comments on key initiatives and current issues relevant to the achievement of an accessible and inclusive environment.

The briefings bring together leading policy-makers in the construction industry, access and inclusion expertise and senior industry players to discuss the key topics in an informal setting.
