Air, water, health and safety - the modern elements for successful building management
11th May 2021
The use of the ‘elements’ (fire, earth, air, water, wood and metal) to represent principles of life, has its roots in thousands of years and many different cultures. In their properties, they are all also essential to the construction and operation of our buildings, premises and places of work.
Over recent decades increasing legal and moral pressure has further impacted these modern elements from a health and safety, as well as sustainability perspective, in what we build and how it is managed now. The last year has also brought additional pressure on them too, as has the change in perception of the user.
So, join us on Tuesday 11th May 09:30-10:30 for a webinar to understand how the elements of air, water and health and safety align currently for those managing buildings, and what will they predict for the future?
Our next webinar will bring together the expertise of three of our senior consultants and service leaders, Vicki Filby-Filson, Kerry Clarkson and James Campbell and Greg Davies, Director of Market Development, to read the signs and provide you with a ‘horoscope’ of:
- What we are practically seeing in the marketplace;
- How current learnings are influencing successful building management;
- What you can be doing to help your remobilisation and reassure staff; and
- Some further future considerations you may need to make.
