- Discuss and debate regional economic development opportunities within the built environment with a view to informing the Hub future strategy in this area.
- Discuss and review with members those issues within the industry
which pose obstacles and/or opportunities to their organisations. To
collaboratively explore solutions, innovations and policies which will
help members and the wider Midlands construction community to grow and
strengthen its position.

LATEST FORUM NEWS.
The six Chairs for the Built Environment Hub’s member forums are now in place and preparing for a joint launch event this summer when they will consult on the detail of what each forum’s participants want to tackle.
The Chairs have agreed that their common core agenda is to pursue the objectives of the joint industry/government Construction 2025 agenda which relates to all 6 themes of our forums.
The forum launch event will be an open session allowing everyone to attend and find out more about the forums and Chairs, have your say about what you think the forums should be addressing and if you are Built Environment Hub members and have signed up to take part in one or more of the forums, what our Chairs will be driving on your behalf.
