Webinar Title: Quality Matters
Speaker: Paul Nash
Organisation: Paul Nash Consultancy
Date: 25th September 2019
It is estimated that poor quality is costing the construction industry annually more than the combined profits of the companies in the industry andresearch by Chartered Quality Institute (CQI) suggested that quality management could save the industry between £7bn and £12bn.
The events that have focused attention on the failure of the construction industry to consistently deliver the required levels of quality in the buildings that we create are well known, but the underlying causes of these failures is something that we are only now beginning to understand.
The Chartered Institute of Building [CIOB] has been investigating the issue of quality in the construction industry and what needs to be done to improve it.
Paul Nash MSc FCIOB, Past President and Chair of the CIOB’s Construction Quality Commission, will share the findings of that investigation and talk about the steps that the CIOB is taking to promote best practice and raise standards of quality management in the construction industry.
Paul is also a member of the Industry Safety Strategy Group chaired by Dame Judith Hackitt that is providing strategic oversight of the Government’s Building Safety Programme following the Grenfell Tower fire and will talk about the recommendations of the ‘Building a Safer Future’ report and what it means for our industry.
