The Complexities of Getting It Right in Construction
Executive Director, Get It Right Initiative
Tuesday 9 April 2019, 6pm for 6.30pm start
ALUK Studio, 5-11 Worship Street, London EC2A 2BH
Join us for an introduction to The Get It Right Initiative [GIRI]: a non-for-profit organisation launched in 2017 and dedicated to tackling error in the UK construction industry.
GIRI has the singular aim to eliminate avoidable error and its associated consequences. The Initiative has adopted a multi-disciplinary approach to raise awareness across the sector with a focus on changing culture and attitudes, and improving knowledge, decision-making and planning skills. Members include clients, consultants, contractors, regulators, educators, professional institutions and trade bodies who are working together to steer the agenda and improve the UK construction industry.
Since its launch, GIRI has been raising awareness about the issues of error in construction. GIRI's Members come together to share knowledge and research the tools the Industry needs to adopt to improve productivity across the board. Tom Barton will introduce how GIRI is approaching Design, Technology and Training as well as the role that Culture plays in eliminating avoidable error.
Tom Barton is the Executive Director of the Get It Right Initiative. He has held this position since the start of the Initiative at the beginning of 2017. Tom has been in the Construction Industry for 50 years and spent most of his career working for two major contractors. He has been involved in many UK and international projects, starting his career as Project Engineer on the Nat West Tower, London. Overseas he has delivered multiple projects in Riyadh as well as a new airport in Kazan, Russia.
Tom has strived for excellence throughout his career and has a passion for getting it right. He believes that the Get It Right Initiative is a real opportunity for the Industry to turn things round and collectively improve its productivity and, more importantly, its reputation.
