Edge invited the Institutions with which we have worked to give evidence in a series of debates and for attendees to submit written evidence. March to May 2014 Session 1 The Environment with CIOB, CIBSE, RAE with keynote by Keith Clarke, Atkins Global Session 2 The Economy with RIBA, IStructE, RICS with keynote by Ian Brinkley of The Work Fdn. Session 3 Society with RTPI, ICE, LI with keynote by Matthew Taylor, RSA Session 4 Future value with Bordass, Franck, Froud, Malik, Prasad and Graham Watts (CIC) Paul Morrell wondered whether we are at a special moment? Globalisation of trade (and membership of institutions) The growth of the investor-owned, multi-national, multidisciplinary practice (eg Aecom) Ageing professions some are estimated to lose 25% UK members by 2020 (and Generation Y is less tribal?) We can collaborate on projects (eg BIM and manifesto) but It is easier for Government to get an answer from KPMG Other issues included: Widespread confusion around Ethics and the Public Interest Education (and CPD) is, in the main, siloed

Climate change is not being taken seriously enough The Performance Gap is usually ignored Dissemination of new knowledge into practice is far too slow We explained the headlines to CEO or President of 17 institutions: ACE + APM + BIFM + cabe + CIAT + CIBSE + CIC + CIHT + CIOB + CIPHE + ICE + IStructE + LI + RIBA + RICS + RSA + RTPI Launch at Arup on 18th May 2015 Tony Burton identifies 3 areas for CIC to follow up Ethics Education Performance Gap and the need for CIC Mark II The (Edge) reports prescription, boiled down, is that they should look to closer collaboration: a view

which would be endorsed by many of the professions, including the CIOB.. a huge to-do list for professional bodies, but it is achievable. Bristol UDG 10/15 + UWE event 1/5 Cambridge - CFCI 10/15, IDBE 12/15 Cardiff events at WSA and then Arup 11/15 + 25/2 Ecobuild Closing the performance gap 9/3 Edinburgh Edinburgh College of Art- 1/3 London CIC Council 3/15 and then 3/16 Manchester CE NW planned for 12th Oct 2016 Newcastle CIC NE with 2 Universities 2/16 Oxford Constructing Excellence at Oxford Brookes - 4/16 Reading The Edge Debate at Reading University 2/16 One-Year-On dinner at the Building Centre 18 May 2016 Paul identified six opportunities for collaboration:

Industry Reform for benefit of clients and suppliers a vision of a more efficient, integrated industry with feedback loops Common Code of Conduct with (CPD) support for members, preferably on a shared inter-disciplinary basis Research collaborative processing of new knowledge for rapid dissemination through the Institutional Journals Presidential collaboration on major issues such as Climate Change and the Performance Gap Education review the siloed nature of the education system and support change on a cross-disciplinary basis RICS, RIBA, ICE and CIOB are now working together as signatories to the International Ethics Standards (IES) Coalition covering 48 countries How to get into to the offices and onto the construction sites? Edge convened Research Dissemination Project team at the Building Centre on 2nd Dec 2015 with APM, BIFM, CIBSE, CIOB, ICE, IStructE, (RICS), RIBA, RTPI. Edge to coordinate market research and review of alternative formats.


SIZE OF AUDIENCE AWARENESS BASIC INTERMEDIATE ADVANCED EXPERT [email protected] RESEARCH RED-TOP (A NEW FORM OF BUILT ENVIRONMENT KNOWLEDGE) KNOWLEDGE COMPRESSION Typically 50:1 (6 research papers to 1 page article) [email protected] Our buildings are changing the climate so why dont our Institutions stand together on Climate Change?

RICS and CIC keen on changing education but are the Universities getting ahead of the Institutions as more and more universities are opening courses with overlapping disciplines?

Group to report progress at Reading on 15th Sept. How can we work together on education?
