Time: 09.30 – 16:00 

We are delighted to invite you to join FIS at its first industry day dedicated to the commercial fit out and design and build sectors.

The purpose of the day is to bring together contractors involved in the commercial fit-out sector to discuss the opportunities as we move to net zero and look to decarbonise fit-out. In the morning sessions we will hear from speakers on what is happening now, and we will discuss how members can position themselves to be part of this revolution. During the break there will be an opportunity to network and see some of the entries from our recent innovation awards.

In the afternoon we will discuss the issues of quality, compliance, and reputation and explore how to reduce risk, increase competence and look at optimising the fit-out process and relationships up and down the supply chain.  During this session we will also have an open forum to hear about the issues that you want to talk about; ahead of the event, if there is anything you would like to put forward for dicsussion, email with details.

We hope you can join us.

*Due to limited places, should the event sell out, spaces will be offered to contractors first and may be limited to one attendee per company

Adam Strudwick, Principal, Corporate Interiors, London

Adam has built his career in the commercial workplace industry, working at various scales, and in a range of locations around the world. But most importantly, there is a driving force behind all his designs – creating democratic workplaces that are sustainable for the future.

As we spend the majority of our day working, Adam is passionate about delivering places that make people happier, and better able to do their job. Coupled with this, he is keenly aware that as a society we are using too many resources, and he aims to limit his impact on the planet through environmentally responsible design.

His care for the environment goes beyond his working life too. As a sustainable and healthy way to travel, he is an advocate of cycling, and believes it will be the future of commuting for most people. For Adam, it is a great way to get in some exercise, drop his kids off at school, and still get into work with time to spare!

Michelle French, Director, CAMA

Michelle supports many different areas of the business with a focus on customer support, business development, and networking. This provides the opportunity to see behind the scenes of the variety of industries that CAMA works with from construction through to Film and TV productions.
