Massive backing for 100% Hackitt initiative following launch

Latest News Wed, Nov 7, 2018 3:57 PM

Since its launch last month, more than 100 organisations and individuals across the construction sector have signed up to support the 100% Hackitt initiative.

Supporters include architects and designers, fire safety and building consultants, fire fighters, trade associations and builders and property maintainers.

The 100% Hackitt initiative was started by LABC and BBA with the aim of bringing together influential individuals and organisations who support the systemic change in the construction industry proposed by Dame Judith Hackitt. In addition to keeping pressure on Ministers to adopt all 53 Hackitt recommendations it will also provide opportunities for those in the industry to discuss cross-disciplinary issues and share best practise.

Commenting, LABC’s Deputy Managing Director, Lorna Stimpson said: “We were delighted with the response from industry and Parliamentarians at the launch – and the response since then clearly shows momentum is building for the whole system change the industry desperately needs.

“Dame Judith has been clear all along that the government cannot cherry pick her recommendations – and neither can the industry. Many of the recommendations don’t have to wait for government action. The industry can just come together to get on with it. And that’s why 100% Hackitt is so vital. It’s a space for the industry – the majority who are progressive and forward looking – to get together and make a difference.”

The BBA’s Chief Executive, Claire Curtis-Thomas added: “We are working with our friends and supporters – more of whom are signing up by the day – on a programme of action so the whole industry can get behind the initiative.

"The opportunity to recast the industry – to end the race to the bottom – is too big not to act. I am very pleased that so much of the industry already agrees and is joining us in taking action for a safer future.”
