This week has been full of events, beginning with the G4C event on Monday in conjunction with RIBA, RICS and Ryder Architecture which was held at their offices in Cooper Studios. The event was about the impact Brexit would have and the opportunities for young professionals.
On Tuesday we held our ‘Social Value in Construction’ event in association with NAWIC at the offices of Thirteen Group in Middlesbrough. It was a very informative morning and we would like to thank all of the speakers including Darush Dodds from Esh Group, Samantha Granger and Susan Borrow from Thirteen Group and MK Rallings-Adams from HACT for their presentations.
Yesterday we held the next in our seminar series in with DAC Beachcroft, ‘Assignment, Novation and Termination’, thank you to Roddy Gordon for presenting and DAC Beachcroft for hosting the event. Yesterday evening I attended the ADP 50th Anniversary at Seven Stories and a thoroughly enjoyable evening was had by all.
Tonight we have our G4C End of Summer BBQ in conjunction with the RTPI Young Planners at the Bridge Tavern in Newcastle. Our G4C group are looking forward to seeing many of you there and of course the delicious food!
