How do we change the culture of the built environment?

Watch the recording of our first session at UK Construction Week

The first of our interactive workshops at UK Construction Week took place last Tuesday. In this session, we

launched our crowdfunding campaign and the Building People prototype platform, with an emphasis on diversity and inclusion, skills and careers, and social value across the built environment.


If you missed the session live, you can watch the recording on YouTube, where you can find out how the platform aggregates and integrates with industry-wide activity, enabling people to find employers, opportunities and resources, and employers to engage with a more diverse range of talent.


One participant commented: 

“Excellent quality of conversation and excellent speakers who covered some challenging issues with respect, for the topic and for each other. A very good session, impressive and powerful - well done.”

Members of the panel for this session were:

  • Bola Abisogun OBE FRICS, Founder and Chairman – DiverseCity Surveyors
  • David Frise, CEO – Building Engineering Services Association
  • Maria Coulter, Chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Panel – Construction Industry Council
  • Rebecca Lovelace, Chief Dot-joiner – Building People
  • Terry Watts, CEO – Chartered Surveyors Training Trust
