Despite the last minute change of ‘venue’ to Zoom, last week’s Contractor Forum meeting was well attended. The main topic of the meeting was sustainability, and we had some great guests talking to us about the opportunities for contractor businesses, as well as the next steps we as contractors need to take in supporting our clients to reach Net Zero and energy efficiency targets. We had a compliance update covering the landscape facing social landlords with building safety and new fire safety regulations, and how early contractor involvement is going to be essential in meeting the new targets. We also had an update on NHMF frameworx and the opportunities available there through the new contracts currently being issued.
