For those managing buildings, most of 2020 (and so far, all of 2021) has been a very unusual and at times, difficult year. That of course is also true for the wider population too.

The scrutiny our building health and safety has been under has no parallel in recent times. It has had to adapt to significant and rapid changes in use and occupation, and so that called for ingenuity, creativity and speed in delivery. But what has the last twelve months told us about managing and maintaining compliance?

Our second webinar of 2021 is going to review some of the changes that have taken place from a health, safety and building management perspective, over the last year, and what we may have learned as a result of these, now and for the future.
