Chartered Institute of Building Innovation and Research Panel

I attended a meeting of the CIOB Innovation and Research Panel today at the CIOB headquarters in Ascot. On the way there I got to drive past Ascot Racecourse - the reconstruction of which was delivered in 2006 using Asite as the collaborative platform - so is not only a beautiful structure but one I take some small personal pride in.

The panel is the body within the CIOB charged with focusing research and development activity across the building industry and advising the UK and European government funding policies and strategies for construction. There is a cross section of contractor, consultant, and academic representation in the group and Asite has been asked to bring the perspective of collaborative working and of technology to the fray.

The meeting held my interest well despite being close to 5 hours long (which is saying something and is testament to the engagement levels of those in the room!). There was of course the enticement of getting an advance peek at the award winners for this years CIOB Innovation and Research Awards (which I shall not divulge!).. The Awards dinner is tonight (as I type these words) and so the info shall become public knowledge shortly in any case.

Of course in my recently acquired status as the father of an infant daughter I was required back at home rather than in evening attire at an awards dinner. Trade-offs must be made!
