BG6 Design Framework Workshop


This workshop will be of interest to delegates who already have a basic knowledge of the current version and/or previous versions of the BG6 Design Framework.

The day will take the form of a facilitated workshop. Following an initial update of the new BG6 key concepts, most of the day will involve the examination of practical project scenarios from the viewpoints of designers, contractors and clients.

Detailed case studies will be used to expose delegates to the often conflicting considerations experienced by these groups, and what practical steps need to be taken to resolve issues.

The day will concentrate on “the importance of seeing things from the other side.”
