The Implications of the Cole Reports
From Zoe Stephens
Professor John Cole reflects on his reports; The Independent Inquiry into the Construction of Edinburgh Schools, and The Independent Inquiry into the Construction of the DG One Complex in Dumfries.
Professor John will present:
- Key findings on the implications of the on-going processes of changes in procurement models, risk transfer, availability of management and trade skills and the level of scrutiny by clients on the quality, safety and operational effectiveness of our new buildings
- The impact of an increasing over reliance on what are often ineffective quality management systems
- The need for a re-professionalisation of the process at a site level
