PLACE at the launch of the Architecture and Built Environment Centre Network (ABECN)

On June 18th Saul Golden represented PLACE at the launch of the Architecture and Built Environment Centre Network (the ABECN), a collective of fourteen centres from around the UK. The occasion was more just a celebratory launch, as representatives from ABECN were joined in a Roundtable discussion by a cross section of participants from government agencies, developers and multi-disciplinary professions. Architecture Minister Ed Vaizey officially launched the Network in the morning before the roundtable examined how to improve design quality across all areas of the built environment. Topics ranged from the influence of government policy and economic factors to the value and efficacy of design reviews on project quality and delivery, and focused in particular on how to collectively improve the quality of residential projects.
