At a meeting at the ICE, Richard Rooley identifies the cracks in our industry and has an idea….
The first “Build-a-Building” Competition takes place, enabled by the ICE.
ARUP field a team for the first time. Over the next decade, more than 120 competitors from Arup will take part in this competition.
Max Fordham OBE joins the panel of judges, our first to have a royal honour but not the last! Frank Duffy is awarded a CBE in 1997, and Richard Saxon CBE judges in 2007.
Team Synergy win the competition: Arup’s first winning team! This is our most popular team name, with five teams over the years choosing this moniker. It doesn’t always work out though: it wasn’t until 2010 that Synergy won again, this time a team from Wates.
The 100th ICE member takes part in Teambuild. This number will more than double by the end of the decade, and keep increasing; more ICE members have taken part in Teambuild than from any other institution.
For the first, but certainly not the last time, the majority of the winning team are female! Well done Buro Happold.
The first Teambuild Pub Quiz: now an annual event. Generously hosted by the winners from 2008, BDP London.
“The Tender Process from Hell”: we offer the first of a series of seminars on legal and contractual aspects of the industry, in partnership with our friends at Mayer Brown LLP.
The Teambuild Association becomes a registered UK Charity, with the aims of “the advancement of education in the construction industry”.
Teambuild goes global, presenting a paper on the values of interdisciplinary construction at the ACSA conference of US Architectural Educators in Barcelona.
Support from the Commercial Education Trust allows us to hire our first Teambuild Fellow: a six-month, paid, fractional position to help the organsiers and also provide a suitable supplementary income for an individual in construction education or training.
Our first-ever Student Competition takes place, at Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh, with an exciting site visit added for the students, courtesy of Balfour Beatty.
Working 'in-house' to improve productivity: we run our first event for WSP|PB as collaborative training for their grad+2 intake
