Cultural Change in the Construction Sector – The Building Safety Network

Overview

The Thomas Ashton Institute’s Building Safety Network advocates for a re-imagined construction culture that prioritises safety, transparency, and resident engagement.

Drawing from anthropological theory and organisational studies, this presentation addresses the pressing need for a cultural transformation within the UK construction industry.

Speaker bio – Dr Ian Tellam – The University of Manchester (UoM)

Ian is a social anthropologist and postdoctoral research associate. He previously worked in the IT sector and developed relationships between technology and culture. His PhD project focused on the adoption of novel technologies such as robotics and AI for nuclear decommissioning, with a focus on the barriers to innovation and organisational change within such a highly regulated and risk averse industry. Following on from this, his work looks at the role of regulation and risk management in the construction industry, the efforts to encourage culture change in the sector.
