acumen7 Member and Founding Partner of Akerlof, Jamie Hillier, has been engaging with the network to look at shifting the dial in construction. Jamie mapped out the solutions and issues in construction reports right through from 1944’s ‘Placing and Management of Building Contracts’ report all the way up to the Government’s ‘Construction Playbooks’ produced in 2020. Jamie pointed out that the Playbooks should be applauded as a vision for change, but the next most vital step is putting it all into practice and for that, behaviours need to change. The industry must do the right thing – not just the wrong thing better and acumen7 will look at ways to support this progress.
