SBCC State of the Industry Lecture 2024

25 January 2024

The Honeywood File Revisited

Join us for a thought-provoking evening at the SBCC State of the Industry Lecture on Wed, Feb 28, 2024 at 18:00. This free* in-person event will take place at the Cornerstone Centre St John's Church and is sponsored by Hardies Property & Construction Consultants.

Our guest speaker Peter Drummond, principal of Peter Drummond, Architect Ltd, will be discussing the 1920's classic book 'The Honeywood File: An Adventure in Building' by H.B. Creswell.

The book which is described as a 'comic classic' is still well-known to many in the construction industry today and Peter will discuss how it is not so much a light-hearted lesson for graduates but a cautionary warning, as relevant now as it was in 1929.

Peter will be looking at some of the "challenges" that James Spin-love faces during his voyage of discovery and will be discussing their modern versions within the construction industry in this day and age.

Don't miss this opportunity to join us at this free* event to gain valuable information, fresh perspectives, and network with like-minded professionals.

We look forward to seeing you there!
