The Forum for the Built Environment (FBE) is one of the leading networking organisations within the construction sector, bringing together professionals across the industry. By focusing on the built environment rather than just the property sector it brings together a wide variety of professionals. Today they have over 2,000 members nationwide from a wide variety of backgrounds including multinational construction companies, cost consultants, architects and engineers.
"It is a real honour to be recognised for my work on the Committee of FBE Cambria."
Sarah Jones, Faithful+Gould's Senior Building Surveyor
FBE Cambria was set up 30 years ago to help facilitate networking and provide a platform for the Construction Sector in South Wales. It is now regarded as the premier networking organisation dedicated to the built environment. During what has been a challenging economic period, FBE Cambria has managed to sell out events, which is testament both to the resilience of the sector and the quality and variety of the events themselves.
At the FBE Cambria AGM and Dinner on Friday 7th March, in front of an audience of 250 of her peers at the Cardiff Marriott, Sarah Jones was formally adopted as Vice Chair. She will shadow the incoming Chair, Huw Jones of Rio Architects and Sarah will become Chair herself in 2015.
Sarah commented on the achievement, "It is a real honour to be recognised for my work on the Committee of FBE Cambria. It is hard work but the ability to work alongside some of the most experienced construction professionals in South Wales is a privilege."
"I am delighted that Sarah has been announced as Vice Chair of the Forum for the Built Environment. It is a reflection of her outstanding ability..."
