UK Chartered Institute of Building eProcurement Conference – Talk Construction

Asite is very proud to be sponsoring the first Chartered Institute Of Building (CIOB) Talk Construction Event being held in London on the 25th and 26th November at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Westminster.


Talk Construction is a conference with a difference. It is the first of its kind in the sector to be research-led not profit-based. It will focus on issues identified as key topics by the CIOB and provide a platform where leaders from construction and Government will come together to analyse, discuss and plan the future for the industry. Focused on building the foundations for investment, competitiveness and growth there is a real buzz surrounding this event which will be the largest of its kind to be organised by the industry for the industry.


The main theme of Talk Construction in 2013 is ‘Building the foundations for competitiveness, investment and growth’. The high-level conference programme will look at the major challenges facing the UK Construction Industry and the fundamental foundations that need to be put in place to create solid government support and investment which will ultimately underpin the UK’s economic recovery.


Asite will be hosting the ‘Rethinking the model for procurement and cost management in UK Construction’ Conference Session and presenting an eye-opening case study.  Tony Ryan, CEO of Asite says “Asite’s Adoddle platform costs less than a postage stamp and can enable the change we need to make in procurement for UK AEC which were set out by Sir John Egan in his 1998 Rethinking Construction report. Adoddle reduces cost, saves time and helps every part of the construction supply chain increase profit margins.”
