The Alliance Steering Group’s 2016 conference will be challenging the power of alliancing in infrastructure, housing and construction.

This year we will be showcasing the powerful results alliancing can deliver in housing, construction and infrastructure projects with breakout
sessions on:
• people, behaviour and culture in delivering successful projects,
• skills and training to bring the right people into construction and infrastructure,
• launching the new Framework Alliance Contract and Alliancing suite of contracts;
• case studies of alliancing in action including housing projects at the Royal Borough of Kingston, Dacorum Borough Council and the Ministry of Justice for the Hillsborough enquiry court rooms.
We will be introducing our ground breaking and innovative FAC-1 Framework Alliance Contract at the event letting you learn how to procure successful alliances.
This is a conference for clients, advisers, consultants and contractors including SMEs. Our combination of keynote sessions with interactive breakout sessions will ensure you get the maximum from the event whilst enabling you to engage with speakers and to network with colleagues.
