Risk is something we are all responsible for when creating a safe and sustainable design and construction solution. Risk comes in various guises - whether procurement and compliance, avoiding potentially devastating consequences or ensuring the well-being of end users. This year our conference will look at how we assess risk more accurately and how, together with innovation, we mitigate potential dangers, reduce costs and futureproof the final outcome.
Innovation is a word which is often used to describe the merits of a successful design or construction solution. We will be asking should this be the driving force when assessing a quality submission and when should we consider something to be truly innovative? We will also focus on whether innovation is a contributor to risk and whether the impact of funding restrictions results in new ideas and better ways of doing things.
“I have been attending ACN conference since its inception.
The ACN has provided some great networking opportunities, resulting in new professional relationships and commissions.
But it has also been a great forum for discussing current challenges and opportunities facing designers and constructors of across all three sectors.”
Sarah Curl, Director, Curl la Tourelle Head Architecture
