COLLABORATING TO ACHIEVE MORE SUSTAINABLE
CONSTRUCTION FOR PROFIT, PLANET AND PEOPLE

Future proofing the construction industry through collaboration, sustainability and technology

Establishing collaborative practices and partnerships has seen growing importance as the projects have evolved beyond the standard client-consultant-contractor relationships. To build a robust and inclusive recovery, the industry needs to come together to actively seek ways to speed up the transformation of the industry to match the ambition of government visions for project delivery.

The Big 5 Global Construction Leaders’ Summit will feature key industry stakeholders and disruptors from outside of the sector to discuss the new way forward with a day full of knowledge sharing.
