We are delighted to confirm that our partner David Rintoul, head of our construction and engineering group, has been asked to speak at the national 'Soft Landings Conference 2017: Delivering value through Soft Landings' organised by BSRIA, the Built Environment specialists.  It will take place on Friday 16th June at RIBA HQ in London and our clients and friends are all warmly invited to attend the conference, invitation to which can be accessed via the below link:

Soft Landings Conference 2017

Soft Landings is an enhanced building delivery process that runs through the project from inception to completion and beyond, to help to close the performance gap between design intentions and operational outcomes. It provides a step-by-step process for clients and their project teams to follow in order to avoid pitfalls and deliver a better performing product.


This conference will help the clients and construction professionals to better understand the benefits of Soft Landings and how they could adopt it in their projects and includes: 

  • Case studies of successful Soft Landings projects.
  • Soft Landings from the investors’ point of view.
  • The Integrated Project Insurance (IPI) and Soft Landings.
  • A special section about BSRIA’s plans for the future of Soft Landings.

 Dr Michelle Agha-Hossein, Soft Landings Operational Lead at BSRIA, said:

“If you are a client or a construction professional who is keen to deliver sustainable and healthy buildings – this conference is for you!

In the past, delivering a new building on time and on budget were the only measures of success. Today – success is ultimately measured on how a building performs in reality and meets the end users’ needs. Soft Landings is the process that runs through a project from inception to completion and beyond to ensure the final product performs as originally intended and meets the end users’ expectations. If Soft Landings is adopted properly – there is no reason why a building should suffer from performance gap.

This conference will feature a range of different practical examples to show how projects benefited from Soft Landings. You will hear from an investors’ point of view as well as case studies from the clients and designers.”
