He read Estate Management at college after which he joined Wates Construction as a management trainee in 1983, progressing through line management to running sites, before taking on a General Manager role in 1989. He joined the Wates Construction Board as Marketing Director in 1994. He was appointed to the Wates Group Board in 1997 and became Chairman in 2013. <br><br> Outside the Group James is involved with several industry bodies. He is Chairman of the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), Chairman of the BRE Trust (the largest single funder of education and research for the built environment), Co-Chairman of Build UK (which represents construction clients, main contractors and the leading trade associations representing over 11,500 specialist contractors), Past President of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), a Member of the business organisation CBI, a Member of the government&#039;s Apprenticeship Delivery Board (ADB), a Trustee of The University College of Estate Management, and a Non-Executive Board Director of Argent Services LLP. <br><br> James is also Chairman of the think tank Tomorrow&#039;s Company, Chairman of the Prince's Trust Built Environment Leadership Group, Vice Chairman of the Queen Elizabeth&#039;s Foundation for Disabled People, a Governor of the Emanuel School, a Governor of the University of Westminster and a Patron of the Wates Family Enterprise Trust. In January 2012 James was awarded the CBE for services to Construction and the Charitable sector. <br><br> <b>Overview of Topic</b> <br><br> Despite the tradition of the ‘Master Builder&#039; – craftsmen such as Sir Christopher Wren who were architect, engineer, and builder – the construction industry has become increasingly fragmented over the past hundred years, to the extent that now, true collaboration among the numerous specialists needed in any substantive construction project is weak. Yet the built environment sector has recognised this failing, and many in the industry are striving to redress this imbalance, supported by such catalysts as digital modelling and a new quality standard (BS11000) that explicitly supports collaboration across the supply chain. We are also recognising the value of looking at other sectors and specialties, especially in manufacturing, where designers and producers work closely together. <br><br> A deep and early collaboration can have particular benefits in regeneration projects, insofar as it helps align the interests of all who have a stake – investors, housing associations, local employers, designers, contractors, the supply chain, and of course the people who live and work there. Examples such as the Kings Cross redevelopment bear witness to this potential for success. But there remain plenty of examples of where collaboration has not happened, resulting in cost overruns, legal disputes, and buildings that are mismatched to the public&#039;s needs. <br><br> <b>The Question</b> <br><br> What advice would you give to ensure that major developments – especially regeneration in the cities – are collaborative enough to reflect the needs of all stakeholders? <br><br> <b>Sponsor </b>Argent LLP<br><br> <b>Venue</b> <br> Argent <br> 4 Stable Street <br> King&#039;s Cross <br> London N1C 4AB <br><br> <b> Map </b> <br> <div style="text-align:center;"> <iframe src="!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d7020.158768117838!2d-0.13116723981695075!3d51.531542685305304!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x487604d66465598b%3A0x96da49f80864d281!2sArgent+LLP!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1491896761702" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> <br><br> <div style="text-align:center;"> <button name ='register' style="width:190; height:80; font-size: 10pt; font-weight: bold;" type='button' onclick= 'javascript:Booking("Argent+Knowledge+Cafe+03+May+2017","_blank",600,400,"resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=yes,menubar=yes,status=yes,location=yes,directories=yes"); ' style='font-family: Arial;font-size: 10px;' >Register for a place on this event or cancel an existing booking</button> </div> 1829EAB9283FA238802580FF0029EE88 Tue, 11 Apr 2017 15:58:05 +0100 David Gurteen New KM Masterclass - KNOW SUCCESSion Link: <a href="">Gurteen Knowledge</a><br>Date: Thu 11 May 2017<br>Organizer: Intelligent Answers<br>Location: London, United Kingdom<br><br>KNOWledge SUCCESSion is a new innovative strategy for achieving optimal performance amongst emergent complexity.
