Common Ground:  Shared Language

Common Ground: Shared Language

1.30pm to 4.30pm on Wednesday 7th February 2017

Join us to explore the power of communication and the need for greater mutual understanding between built environment professionals considering our shared aims for quality and a shared language. The nature of education, training and professional practice has an impact on professional understanding and can be critical to success in many projects.

Are Architects and Planners really from different planets? Does everyone really understand what is expected of them? Who is best placed to help the client understand the processes and why they may or may not have the final say? We will be joined by Planners working across the public and private sectors, Architects, Developers and Landscape Architects.
