BIG CONSTRUCTION names will lead a debate on improving construction efficiency at the Civils 2000 exhibition at Birmingham NEC this month.
Carillion chief executive Sir Neville Simms, Kvaerner executive vice-president David Fison, Thames Water engineering director David Glendinning, Ernst & Young managing consultant Frank Devoy and director of developer Hammerson, Geoff Wright, will chair masterclasses organised by the Construction Best Practice Programme.
'We have some powerful guns on board and expect to stimulate debate, ' said CBPP director Zara Lamont.
She added that the sessions would call on the experience of firms that have led the quest for improved performance to gains.
Masterclasses, to be run on all three days of Civils, are aimed at clients, consultants and contractors. Delegates will have an opportunity to hear how other industry players have tackled productivity and performance improvement through a series of case studies.
Speakers would be comparing performance against CBPP key performance indicators, Lamont said. Presentations would be candid and provocative, she predicted.
