Event Details

As part of the the publication of the 2014 Plan of Work, the RIBA has commissioned a series of supporting books on both the various stages as well as the cross-cutting themes that span the various the stages.

Handover is a commonly neglected phase of delivery which is often rushed, disorganised, and supported with poorly defined roles on all sides of a project. We’d like to ask the Good Homes Alliance community with help in contributing their expertise and experience to the book to help close the performance gap at Handover. Lisa would like to invite you to participate in a facilitated discussion on Wednesday, 25th February about:

  • best-practice in Handover
  • how the industry can adapt to do a better job at serving clients in this stage of the project
  • what tasks should be who’s responsibility at each stage of the project with respect to handover
  • how should product suppliers fit into the handover process
  • commissioning issues and their management
  • good, bad and ugly experiences with building handovers, from the GHA community's perspective

The notes from the discussion will be made available for the GHA community and will contribute to the book’s content. There will be an opportunity to contribute credited 200-300 word case study examples to the book from your own experience.

Glasgow Kayak Club

Glasgow Kayak Club are a group of Kayakers from around the Glasgow area, who range in experience from ‘first time in a boat’ to accomplished sea paddlers and river runners, with a smattering of instructors. We have a thriving youth flat water racing group and a canoe polo section. During the warmer months we meet at the Pinkston Water Sports Centre, and during autumn and spring school term time we meet in North Wooodside swimming pool. At both Pinkston and the pool informal coaching is available from instructors and more experienced members, or you can just have a play under the watchful eye of the pool life guard or our trained safety officer.

The junior Sprint and Marathon group paddles on the Forth and Clyde canal at Applecross St in Glasgow, and during the colder months trains regularly in a local hall and swimming pool.

Club trips are arranged from time to time – as demand merits – and are led by suitably qualified instructors or by experienced club members. Less formal trips are arranged by groups of members on an ad hoc basis with trips going out on loch, river or sea most weekends. Members can borrow (basic) club equipment, which include Buoyancy Aids, Paddles, Spray decks, and a variety of plastic general purpose, white water, and Sea Kayaks, which can be picked up from boat shed in the west end of Glasgow.

Although most of our paddling takes place in the West of Scotland we also paddle further afield and recent trips have included Greece and Sardinia.
