Public Procurement and Property
The ‘Construction Procurement Sessions’ cover sustainability
Our Construction Procurement Policy Unit hosted their second webinar last month as part of The Construction Procurement Sessions: A Series of Webinars.
These webinars are for all those with an interest in public sector construction procurement in Scotland. The aim is to promote the guidance the Construction Procurement Policy Unit has available and to engage with stakeholders on topical areas within the construction industry.
This webinar provided an introduction to the Scottish Government’s new sustainable construction procurement policy and supporting guidance that is being developed for inclusion in the Client Guide to Construction Projects.
The question and answer session at the end covered the following topics:
- carbon v cost analysis
- monitoring and preventing the use of illegal practices in construction projects
- use of Building Information Modelling (BIM)
- early contractor engagement
- sustainable Drainage Systems
- commissioning projects
- promotion of health and wellbeing in built assets
- reporting of social value outcomes
- payment terms and conditions
- terminology in the guidance
- use of local materials in a circular economy
If you wish to see the presentation used in the webinar please contact Alison.Lannon@gov.scot.
Subsequent webinars in The Construction Procurement Sessions will occur throughout the year, make sure to follow us on our social media channels to keep up to date!
