CANCLD The Future of Construction - What does it look like?

This is an exclusive members only event. 

Our exclusive CIRIA Members day, featuring a lively panel session on the future of construction, and an update from our specialist panels, will be taking place on 4th May, so make sure you save the date. As well as our featured session on the vision for construction in 2050, Members will be updated on CIRIA's plans for working more closely with our membership and hear about what our member panels are planning for the coming year.

The Future of Construction will be presented and debated by leaders from the consultancy, client, academic and contractor disciplines, each offering a unique perspective on how the industry will look in 2050, introduced by a CIRIA overview on how the industry has changed over the last thirty years.
