Light Lunch with Olly Steele & Mark Iremonger
Webinar posted on 11/7/2024 under Light Lunch

In this Light Lunch we chatted with Mark Iremonger, Head Quantity Surveyor - Tenders & Delivery at Summerset Group Holdings Ltd & Olly Steele, Project Controls Lead at The Building Intelligence Group.

Olly and Mark gave positive perspectives on meeting industry challenges through smart planning, technology adoption, and maintaining strong ethics and partnerships. They encouraged being adaptable, staying curious, and embracing opportunities to find fulfilling career paths.

Key takeaways from their conversation:

  • Cost escalations in materials and potential skill shortages are major issues facing the industry. Planning and using technology efficiently can help mitigate cost rises without compromising on quality.
  • There is a risk of a "race to the bottom" with very competitive pricing. Companies have a responsibility not to encourage this and to partner with good contractors while still delivering value.
  • Wellbeing and work-life balance are important. Exercise, being outdoors, and having hobbies can all help to clear your head and maintain your mental health.
