There have been big improvements over recent years in reducing the number and rate of injuries to construction workers. Despite this, construction remains a high-risk industry and accounts for a high percentage of fatal and major injuries.

What is less recognised is that construction is a high-risk industry for health issues too.

Chris Lucas, Head of HSE’s Construction Sector Health Unit will be providing an overview presentation on current and developing issues covering:
– Lung disease
– Materials handling
– Workplace stress together with updates on evolving health matters.

Construction Insurance Risks

Date: 6th June 2019
Time: 8.30am – 10.30am
Venue: Middlesbrough Football Club
Cost: £10 + VAT

“Construction insurance can present tricky terrain to negotiate, with a minefield of policies, acronyms and jargon. Adam Aston from our Construction Team will attempt to simply and demystify some common construction related insurance issues.

In this (hopefully interactive) session we will dig deeper into practical and legal issues including:

  • typical construction risks;
  • mitigating those risks through insurance;
  • who needs to be insured; and
  • how should they be insured.

We hope this session will be useful to construction professionals including developers, contractors, sub-contractors and consultants at all levels of the construction chain.”

Constructing Excellence in the North East are delighted to welcome back Ann Bentley, Global Director at RLB and Procuring for Value (PFV) workstream lead in the Construction Leadership Council back to the region.

Ann will update us on what has been developed as her workstream starts to come to a close, and the PFV Tool is readied for deployment.

So what is Procuring for Value?  How will it operate?  And more importantly, what opportunity will it create; how do we engage and benefit?  Procuring For Value has potential to be a very significant carrier for change; with our passion for better homes, infrastructure and outcomes how can we give it the best chance for success?

This event also includes an update on the NE Construction Strategy, and finishes with a workshop where we will consider what we have learned about PFV and the Strategy, and turn this into challenges to be submitted to the Dynamo NE Innovation Day 2019, creating an opportunity to link opportunities and barriers with potential solutions.

Breakfast Seminar with Kings Chambers – Can Town Planning still deliver homes fit for Heroes?21/06/19

Organisation: RTPI
Date: 21/06/19
Time: 08.00
Speaker: Various
Venue: Copthorne Hotel, Newcastle upon Tyne
Cost: from £10.00 plus vat
Type: Breakfast seminar
Contact: kim.walker@rtpi.org.uk
Region: Newcastle-Upon-Tyne
Time of Day: Day
Topic: Planning

2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the building programme that followed the end of the Great War which sought to create “Homes fit for heroes”. In the last 100 years slums have been cleared and large council estates constructed. Garden settlements have faded in and out of vogue and the great post town planning movement of the twentieth century sought to rebuild the shattered cities of the country whilst preserving the precious natural and cultural heritage of the nation. 2019 also marks the 70th anniversary of T Dan Smith becoming leader of Newcastle City Council and the catalyst for the brutalist architecture that transformed the City in the 1960s before coming to an end in a mire of corruption and disillusion. NPPF2 is this generation’s effort to try to mould the development which is needed with the protection of that which is precious. This talk will look at whether or not the Policy makers and the Courts have properly equipped this generation of planners to resurrect the aim to create Homes Fit for Heroes, or have we squandered the experience of the last century?”

Procuring for Value  asks some very challenging questions for clients, and represents a very real contrast to existing culture and practice within clients and their supply chains.  This event takes a step back and looks at what this means – Construction Leadership, namely the call to clients and their advisors to build and demonstrate leadership.

We are delighted to welcome Andy Mitchell to the North East to speak.  Andy is CEO of the multi-billion Thames Tideway infrastructure project and Co-Chair of the Construction Leadership Council.  The Government wants very different outcomes from construction compared to business as usual; this is an opportunity to engage with a national construction leader on what the opportunities are for the North East in this context and understand how we can shape success.

There is a desperate need for ambitious, transformational clients to seize these opportunities and create the space for change.  Tom Jarman will be presenting on client leadership – what does this look like, how do we recognise it?  And what can we do to support it?

Finally, we will hear from Oliver Novakovic, Technical and Innovation Director at Barratts.  Oliver is passionate about performance, productivity and quality, and has extensive experience in the construction sector to draw on, including the current AIMCH programme.  He will talk about construction leadership from his perspective, what it looks like in practice, and outline what difference the space for change, driven by clients, could make.

Speaker: Various
Venue: Bewick Suite, Newcastle City Library
Cost: from £99.00 plus vat
Type: CPD Seminar
Contact: kim.walker@rtpi.org.uk
Region: Newcastle-Upon-Tyne
Time of Day: Day
Topic: Planning

The May Future of Town Centres conference will have covered the changing mix of uses which have the potential to sustain town and city centres as many of their traditional activities are increasingly conducted on-line.
This conference will focus on how we can exploit changing economic and social patterns and bring them into play to produce great places to meet, work, live and conduct our collective social and cultural lives. Using Newcastle’s East Pilgrim Street area as a base for our work, we will explore the implications of the changing roles of town and city centres and how we can use them to produce places which can respond richly to wider aspirations in terms of the creation of environments which are healthy, inclusive and age-friendly. Issues, principles, opportunities and potential synergies and conflicts will be introduced by a range of speakers. Delegates will then have the opportunity to view the area and work in groups to design with uses to outline broad urban design strategies for the area.

Rural Planning Update05/09/19

Time: 09.30
Speaker: Various
Venue: People First Conference Centre, Carlisle
Cost: from £99.00 plus vat
Type: CPD Seminar
Contact: kim.walker@rtpi.org.uk
Region: Cumbria
Time of Day: Day
Topic: Planning

Whilst planning becomes more urban focussed it can be easy to forget that 21% of England’s population live in a rural area. Planning in the rural areas is constantly needing to adapt to ever changing environmental and economic pressures. The future of agricultural support is uncertain in a post Brexit economy which may give rise to increased pressure to diversify and assistance needs to be given to rural communities to enable them not only to survive but thrive.

This day will explore how planing can aid the rural area to be successful in its own right.
