UK and Ireland Shopping Centre Management Sentiment Survey 2013
In 2013 CEM (with the kind support of the BCSC), undertook for the first time a sentiment survey of its alumni on the BCSC Diploma in Shopping Centre Management in order to recognise the key challenges affecting centre managers in the home market of the UK and Ireland.
This survey also sought to identify trends that will affect this market over the next three years (2014-2016).
Diversity: Brilliant for the construction industry
Inclusion, diversity, equality and respect for human rights are issues that, if abused, can lead to social conflict. This study asks whether multiculturalism and cross-cultural awareness are embraced by the construction industry, or if discrimination and stereotyping are still present. It also assesses whether individuals and the wider industry understand and are utilising the tools they have been given to drive forward inclusion.
Grey Water for UK Housing
Recycling waste ‘grey water’ from showers, baths and wash basins would make a major contribution towards cutting water consumption in the UK, according to new research published by the College of Estate Management.
Grey water recycling systems are currently expensive and are not widely used in Britain, and the research report says they are unlikely to catch on without financial incentives.
The report calls on the Government and water companies to do more to explain the importance and benefits of grey water recycling to the public.
