The Scheme’s 2015 ITIOC event a “resounding success”
Over 150 industry professionals from across the UK came together for the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s hugely successful Improving The Image Of Construction (ITIOC) event held in London this week.
Open to all of the Scheme’s registered sites, companies and suppliers for the first time ever, the 3rd ITIOC event was staged at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel on Wednesday, 15th September.
A host of delegates from all areas of the construction industry had a unique opportunity to engage with experienced Scheme Directors and Monitors and attend exclusive Scheme presentations providing invaluable insight and guidance. Guest presentations were also held by BOHS, CALM, CIOB, Grown in Britain, Prostate Cancer UK, TfL and the Prince’s Trust.
In between presentations, delegates were able to browse exhibition stands for further information on various Scheme initiatives and also had an opportunity to meet a whole variety of organisations playing their part in improving the image of the industry. This included life-saving health advice on preventing work-related lung conditions and prostate cancer, to road safety initiatives.
Supporting organisations at the event:
Construction Industry Publications
Construction Youth Trust
Grown in Britain
Prostate Cancer UK
The Lighthouse Club/Construction Industry Helpline
The Prince’s Trust
Scheme Chairman, Mike Petter said:
Once again ITIOC has proved to be a resounding success with a wealth of organisations joining forces with the Scheme to promote the very best the industry has to offer.
ITIOC has become a crucial date in the construction industry calendar – an unmissable opportunity for construction professionals to gain invaluable knowledge from the experts to improve every aspect of their operations.
The Scheme would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended ITIOC 2015 and to each and every one of the industry organisations whose invaluable work is helping to improve every aspect of the construction industry. It was a fantastic day.
The Scheme also took the opportunity to introduce two new developments – a female costume character and the Building Social Value assessment. The female costume character will work alongside Ivor to help promote construction to a young audience. She has yet to be named so delegates were asked to select one for her – once the votes have been counted, she will officially be launched and costumes will be available to hire.
Building Social Value assesses the impact a construction site has in creating social value within the local community, local economy and local environment. More information on this will be published shortly.
The hashtag #ITIOC2015 was trending on Twitter and a few of the messages included:
The Scheme would like to once again thank everyone who attended ITIOC and hope they found the event informative and enjoyable. Thank you also to the organisations who supported it through presentations and stands, and the Scheme looks forward to working with them in the future.
