Why do we build? Why develop society? Who reaps the benefit? This podcast looks at the new interest the construction industry is taking in quantifying and appreciating social value.
One of the biggest challenges for industry practitioners in creating social value on their projects is being able to understand what social value means for that project and what best practice delivery looks like.
Guests Penny Anderson, Associate Director Social Value, Atkins, Peter Masonbrook, Head of Social Value, Faithful + Gould, and Simon Toplass, CEO, Pagabo, try to define what it is, talk about new legislation, and we hear from a framework provider that is putting social value at the core of its projects.
