Herefordshire and Worcestershire Constructing Excellence Club (HAWCE) has been established for 10 years now and seeks to promote the interests of the industry in the two counties and to update members on important developments in the construction world, both locally and nationally. During that period we have typically put on at least 6 events each year, ranging from seminars, debates, site visits (including to the dramatic ‘Hive’ Building, photographed below) and our popular summer barbecue. We have had a particular focus on Building Information Modelling, holding at least 4 events on this over the last few years, and are fortunate to have on our committee a number of people experienced in BIM, including Jason Whittall of ONE Creative Environments and Fiona Moore of Cirrus Consulting.
Our committee and membership is diverse with major contractors such as Bouygues and Speller Metcalfe represented, but also local SMEs and a number of architects, engineers, quantity surveyors and project managers too. I have been privileged to chair HAWCE for nearly 10 years now and would like to give thanks to the committee members who have greatly assisted me in this role. Forthcoming events for the next year include a talk on the City Masterplan for Worcester and a site visit in conjunction with the CIOB to a new cyber security centre being built near Hereford.
