Collaborative Procurement Guidance for Building Safety
On-Pole Limited in conjunction with by Professor David Mosey of King’s College London Centre of Construction Law has prepared collaborative procurement guidance to support building safety.

The guidance is designed to support:
Public and private sector clients and their advisers when implementing collaborative processes, relationships and systems in their procurement strategies, procedures and contracts for projects in-scope and at each ‘gateway’ point under the Bill
The parties identified in the Bill comprising ‘dutyholders’ during design and construction, when using collaborative processes, relationships and systems to inform, support and integrate the design, construction, supply and operation of an inscope project and when implementing risk management so as to prioritise safety and quality issues and the needs of residents
The Building Safety Regulator when establishing how the industry moves to safer practices across the lifecycle of buildings inscope of the new regulatory regime.

Well, look no further than Red Bull Racing’s repair of Max Verstappen’s car at the 2020 Hungarian Formula 1 Grand Prix (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-HpHDpeF8E).
The team completed the repair in under 18 minutes (which would normally have taken well over an hour), with thirty seconds to spare before they were required to leave the grid. The car not only lasted the entire race, but Max went on to finish in 2nd place. A truly staggering achievement.
So how did they do it? Well, here’s our take.
