Bringing together Innovation and Sustainability is a rewarding challenge with great opportunities.

Our renewed focus of Sharing, Influencing and Networking supports the ambitions of our themes, clubs and forums.

Climate Summit has been booked for the 21st November at Sandy Park Exeter organized by the Devon and Exeter Club of CESW

Greater sharing, with aligned partnerships are planned, we have a series of ambitious themes which focus on challenging issues.

Working as part of a wider group with greater networking with our piers creates greater influencing.


Innovation and Sustainability Workshop Summary - 12th May 2020 CLICK HERE TO READ FULL SUMMARY

The Innovation & Sustainability Forum for Construction Excellence South West is a group made up of architects, construction managers, project managers, developers, industry professional groups, housing association developers, and multi-diciplinary consultants and many more.

We held a workshop to start conversations on how to learn from this crisis. As individuals and industry how do we learn from Covid 19? How do we incorporate/embed sustainability values into our personal lives and work?

Using RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) matrix on understanding crisis-response measures we thought about:

· What things have we started doing and want to end or amplify

· What things have we stopped doing that we want to let go or restart.
