The benefits of early engagement

The seminar explains the benefits of early engagement with suppliers during a building project and of continued involvement right up to site handover.

Looking at the relationship between project-specific requirements and materials specification, topics covered include energy and indoor climate, acoustics, performance, sustainability, BIM, design and installation, and detailing. The seminar also looks at suppliers’ responsibilities in the context of building regulations.
