Following the 2011 summer riots, industry experts will be discussing its potential impacts on the construction process later this month.
With high profile events such as the London 2012 Olympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, it’s likely that minimising crime and disorder on Britain’s streets will be high on the agenda of most. However, due to the complexity of these issues, it is crucial that the processes in place address the various stages within the construction and planning lifecycle and is incorporated into the design of any project.
Chaired by NCE editor Antony Oliver, and hosted by London Underground, experts will be discussing how planning and design can ensure successful outcomes in crime prevention in public spaces on 26 January.
The event is to coincide with Construction Industry Research and Information Association’s (Ciria) new guidance, Addressing crime and disorder through planning and design. Event details can be found here.
