Following the Grenfell tragedy and subsequent recommendations by Dame Judith Hackitt in her 'Building a Safer Future' report, the construction industry have started to respond, offering potential solutions to improve fire safety design and regulations.
The Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and Association for Project Safety (APS) are teaming up to run a series of ‘construction technology’ (#contech) workshops to explore the use of new technology integrations to develop much needed market solutions to known fire safety issues.
We are calling for a mix of industry experts, building owners, tech start-ups, coders and developers to register interest for the following programme:
Event and registration launch: Digital Construction Week
Establish virtual #slack community: end of October
Launch outline challenges and working group structure: early November
All successful registrations will be invited to attend Workshop 1
Round table 'Think-Tank' 22nd November @ IET, Savoy Place, London. (formation of working groups, challenges exploration and potential solutions)
Virtual working groups and solution development: December/ January
A hackathon based workshop to finalise proposed solutions and presentations. 6-7th March @ IET, Savoy Place, London.
Presentations will be to a panel of industry experts, innovators and funders/ investors with the aim to develop the winning idea into a ‘market-ready’ solution or product
WE NEED BETTER SOLUTIONS, WE NEED THE BEST PLAYERS
YOU ARE THE FUTURE MAKERS, LET'S MAKE A SAFER BUILT ENVIRONMENT
