NAWIC London and the South East Conference 2018 | 15 years of NAWIC

Taking the driving seat: You can (shape construction)!

Research by the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) shows that one of the strengths women bring to business in general and the construction industry, in particular, is creative problem-solving.

Throughout history, women have created solutions to overcome a particular challenge and yet this is not something most people know about. The fire escape, multifunctional kitchen furniture solutions, solar heating and workplace ergonomics are just a few examples of solutions to problems with a female authorship.

We want to show that our industry can provide the framework for innovation and that there are many ways in which this materialises, with women actively seeking to implement changes which will benefit the industry as a whole.

Hence this conference will be geared up to inspire and empower attendees to look around and take action to make a difference within their own environment and the industry as a whole without the need to wait to be given the opportunity.

Built By Us Founder Danna Walker will be taking part in the "Women Shaping the Industry Panel". For more information and tickets visit the link below:

BBC Radio 4 - The Art of Now | The Architecture of Incarceration

As Britain opens the latest in a series of large new jails, architect Danna Walker looks at the unique tensions in architecture's relationship with the judicial system - where the go-to design for prisons is 250 years old, and where ideological conflicts between incarceration and rehabilitation dominate.

The programme will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4, at 11.30 am on Thursday 23 August 2018. It will then be available on the BBC IPlayer
