The Building & Engineering Services Association has announced it will host a roundtable discussion at its offices on the subject of retentions, in support of sister publication H&V News’ Time for Change campaign.
The B&ES was one of the first supporters of the campaign when it was launched last November.
Time for Change was launched to raise awareness of a number of long-running issues within the building services sector and wider construction industry.
Following discussions with industry contacts, it was agreed that the initial focus of the campaign would be to launch a government e-petition to drive debate on placing retention funds within construction contracts into trust accounts.
The campaign is continuing to gain support from all areas of the industry, including a growing number of industry associations.
H&V News editor Dennis Flower will also attend the roundtable discussion and will report on the event in a future issue of the magazine.
Time for Change has been created as an industry-wide initiative and aims to include all sectors of the industry to drive improvement and deliver benefits for the entire supply chain in the future.
