Episode 9: Dame Judith Hackitt
Dame Judith Hackitt chats with Jacob about all things building safety, including managing and maintaining building safety, moving the focus from making buildings for the least amount of money to creating buildings that have safety at its core, regulatory changes, and the need for the 'Golden Thread of Information' throughout a building's lifecycle and what it means in pragmatic terms.
