13 APR





ACE’s Future of Consultancy themed webinars return with a new series exploring the changing face of the industry.

The virtual events include episodes on future risk, delivery models, pricing, roles and services, and are designed to not only provoke discussion and debate, but provide attendees with a firmer grasp of an ever-changing business landscape.

With the publication of the Construction Playbook and in advance of the expected launch of the Construction Innovation Hub’s Value Toolkit – both ‘game-changers’ in their own rights – there has never been a better time to explore the potential for new ways of delivering and working.

Joining your host, ACE’s chief executive Hannah Vickers, will be a range of industry thought leaders from the Cabinet Office, CECA, and the Construction Innovation Hub (CIH). Prominent guests from ACE members including Arcadis, Arup, Buro Happold and WSP in the UK also join to share their experiences and insight, with more TBA soon.

Future roles and services for consultants 
Alasdair Reisner (CECA) joins Craig Huntbatch, ACE's Vice Chair (Future of Consultancy) to discuss what the future roles and services mean to contractors, how they will interact with a new offering from consultants and what it all means for clients and other stakeholders.

This webinar will take place on Tuesday 13 April 2021 from 12.00pm to 1.00pm.
