The IET and the Association for Project Safety (APS) are teaming up to run a series of ‘construction technology’ workshops to explore the use of new technology integrations to develop much needed solutions to known fire safety issues.

This follows the Grenfell tragedy and subsequent recommendations by Dame Judith Hackitt in her 'Building a Safer Future' report.

 

Taking place at IET London: Savoy Place on 22 November, the event is aimed at a mix of industry experts, building owners, tech start-ups, coders and developers where they can begin developing new fire and building safety solutions to go on to commercial development.

 

The aim is to harness the potential of computer coding and modelling to drive innovation in fire safety. Following the initial workshop, teams will have until the end of December to scope and document the solutions where the best ideas will be taken forward for commercial development at a further session towards the end of February 2019.

 

The workshop is open to all but spaces are limited. To register your attendance, please visit the Built Environment webpage.
