Lucy Sherburn, CIBSE ASHRAE Graduate of the Year 2021 is one of 14 people on the Building the Future Young Persons’ Advisory Panel. Building launched the panel to provide feedback from the perspective of construction’s next generation of leaders.
The panel will help the Building the Future Commission harness the knowledge of the next generation of leaders in the construction sector. The Building the Future Commission is a year-round project looking at radical and challenging ideas that could help transform the built environment. It will run over 12 months - as Building celebrates its 180th anniversary - with a report published at the end of 2023.
Lucy said the following on joining the panel:
“I am delighted to be part of the Young Person’s Advisory Panel of the Building the Future Commission and looking forward to working with the panel and commissioners to address some of the key issues facing the built environment. I’m particularly passionate about inspiring the next generation of young engineers and ensuring the workplace is supportive and inclusive for all, so I am excited to feed into work on the areas in relation to skills and workplace culture.”
The panel of 14 people under the age of 35 will help the Building the Future Commission harness the knowledge of the next generation of leaders in the construction sector.
The panellists are from a range of organisations spanning architecture, housing, cost consultancy and legal, including CIBSE, the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Home Builders Federation, Chartered Institute of Housing, Chartered Institute of Building, Ramboll, Fenwick Elliott and Turner and Townsend and more.
The panel will play a key role in feeding into the commission’s search for solutions that improve the built environment. Panellists will be taking part in virtual events, a mentoring and reverse mentoring programme, and they will be invited to contribute comment pieces to Building, focusing on potential solutions to the key challenges the industry faces.
