GIRI director to speak at Construction Productivity Conference

9 Feb 22

The vital role that error reduction can play in improving construction productivity will be highlighted by GIRI executive director Cliff Smith in his presentation to the Construction Productivity Conference in London on 10 May 2022.

The Construction Productivity Conference will address the need to improve productivity in the built environment, looking at ways to reduce inefficiencies and reverse poor productivity through upskilling and training, digital technologies, and new offsite practices. The conference will focus on the application of the 'productive construction factory thinking' model and change management in the key areas of product, process, and people.

In a presentation titled Is the hidden cost of error undermining your productivity? How getting it right first time will save you money, help you work more safely and improve your reputation, Cliff will share the findings of GIRI’s research that shows that up to £21 billion is wasted by the sector each year through error. He will explain how GIRI is working with our members to change culture and behaviours throughout the industry in the pursuit of zero error.

Cliff joins a high-profile speaker line-up, which includes Ann Bentley, global board director at Rider Levett Bucknall, Nigel Webb, head of developments at British Land, Shaun Tate, director of Mace Tech Construction, UK, Anthony Impey, CEO of Be the Business, and Andrew Burke, Dean of Trinity Business School. Speakers will share their expertise on everything from the Construction Playbook and the Construction Productivity Taskforce to improving productivity through digital technologies.
