Associate Partner, McKinsey & Company
To kick off the first 'Live in Person' UKCW for two years, McKinsey Associate Partner David Rockhill, who specialises in real estate and infrastructure, gives an expert overview on the business, technical and challenges – and possible solutions – facing UK construction today.
COINS FUTURE SERIES: The Future of Construction Procurement
05 Oct 2021 / 12:25 - 13:10
COINS procurement specialist David Bullock chairs this forward-looking expert session alongside procurement experts Graham Edgell, Director of Sustainability and Procurement - Morgan Sindall Group plc and John Adams, Group Procurement Director - Barratt Developments.
Will construction industry procurement be radically different in the future? The pandemic and Brexit have thrown a double curve ball at standard procurement systems, while the supply chain suffers shortages of everything from timber to silicon chips and contracts go into timing meltdowns. Industry experts share their vision for long-term transformation.
COINS FUTURE SERIES: FUTURE OF SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION
05 Oct 2021 / 14:00 - 14:45
It’s becoming increasingly important for construction to become more sustainable – but simple sustainability is no longer enough. We have to move from a position of minimising damage to generating and creating positive inputs to the built environment that are not only carbon free in themselves but actively remove it. The implications are legion, covering waste, materials and the design of buildings as ‘materials banks'. This session includes two speakers both previously shortlisted for the COINS Grand Challenge.
- Pooran Desai CEO, oneplanet.com / serial entrepreneur, real estate developer, author and advisor to companies and government.
- Ehab Sayed, Founder | Director of Innovation, Biohm / a regenerative design engineer, circular economy strategist and built environment innovator with a passion for creating a biomimetic (nature-inspired) circular future that meets our environmental, economic and human needs.
Wednesday 6 October: Main Stage

How can the construction industry improve health and wellbeing? It doesn’t look easy for construction with suicide among male construction workers being three times more than the national average. COINS have invited an expert panel to present their vision of how the future could look and what support is available.

- Martin Coyd OBE / Head of H&S, Capital Counties Properties / Building Mental Health Framework / Thriving at Work Leadership Council.
