An overview of construction processes - Young Engineers Network
This event is aimed at those who have been in the industry for less than 10 years and gives an interactive overview of some of the key elements of the design and construction process. We will be looking at why Soft Landing is important and how it should be implemented, along with how Government Soft Landings and BIM can work together.

It is important to evaluate the performance of a completed building after the building has been occupied to ensure that the building is functioning well at all times, this is known as Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) which is the final stage of Soft Landings. This event also gives an interactive session about POE
