SELECT welcomed a cross-section of experts from across the industry to Glasgow last month as we embarked on a new series of face-to-face networking events.


Senior figures from a range of organisations gathered at House for an Art Lover on 21 September to hear a discussion hosted by Director of Technical Services Bob Cairney.


Delivering the electrical viewpoint when it came to construction was top of the agenda, with areas covered including:

  • A brief history of electrical installations and relevant legislation

  • What to look for when carrying out a survey of a property

  • The importance of maintenance and periodic inspection and testing

  • Current certificates and reports

  • Building regulations and certification of construction.

Guests included architects, surveyors, specifiers and construction project managers, with a delegation from Fife Council led by Housing Services Business Change Manager Andy Graham, who is also Chair of the SELECT-led Local Authority and Client Form.



Hosting duties for the day were provided by Gary Mees, a Chartered Architectural Technologist and leading member of the Construction Industry Collective Voice (CICV).


Information on innovation and products was also supplied courtesy of exhibitions by SELECT Associate Members Aico, Electrium, Hager and Scolmore.


After the success of this initial event, we’re now looking forward to hosting further Professionals’ Days, sharing our expertise and allowing senior industry decision makers to network and exchange ideas.
