The panel promotes effective industry-wide initiatives on sustainable construction in conjunction with other construction sector bodies.
With extensive experience of sustainability issues gained in practice, you will assist in developing useful guidance and updates to members.
You will attend four meetings a year and have full access to all related documents. You will undertake some work between meetings.
Participating in the panel is a great way to contribute to your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
We invite expressions of interest in panel membership each September, contacting all members except Student Members.
Contact the panel if you have questions about their work.
