organisation the fbe (Forum for the Built Environment) has lined up a string of
events in the East Midlands over the next few months. 
The organisation, which nationally is the longest

Leicester Racecourse on July 23rd and a Golf Day at The Leicestershire
Golf Club on September 11th. 
Meanwhile, entries have now opened for the East Midlands fbe
annual awards, which reward the scheme and team behind development projects in

the award winners will be announced at a ceremony in Leicester on October 9th. 
Recently appointed regional chairman of the East Midlands
fbe, Jef Todd, who is business development director at civil and structural
engineering firm BSP Consulting, said: “The fbe events are open to members and
non-members, and are a great way of networking and making new contacts for
people who work in, or alongside, the construction, property or development

friends, to the social events that have been organised, and is also looking
forward to seeing entries for the East Midlands fbe awards, which have
