Pretty much all our marketing, PR and communications work is issues based. Unsurprisingly then, we have many years’ experience helping clients to prepare for and manage sensitive issues.

24/7 support to protect your reputation

During a crisis, we provide advice and support to our clients at any time of day or night. Our most recent issues management work includes managing PR and communications around:

  • Political and public concerns about building standards
  • Systems failures
  • Controversies in land use planning, health and safety issues and consumer protection

Expert advice on critical issues in construction

We are currently managing campaigns which touch on some of the most critical issues in construction and the built environment:

  • Recruiting new talent into the industry to tackle the skills gap
  • Building Regulations, technical standards and emerging policy on regulations
  • Fire safety, fire engineering and fire risk assessment
  • Offsite construction and volumetric construction innovations
  • Planning, urban design and responsible development
  • BIM and its impact on design, construction and facilities management
  • The performance gap and reducing risk in newbuild and refurb projects
  • Sustainability in the built environment
  • Renewable energy and energy efficiency
  • Property insurance and repairs
  • Consumer protection in construction

Political and public affairs support

Where clients also need an integrated communications service targeting Westminster, Whitehall and the devolved governments, we work closely with a specialist public affairs consultancy in London to help ensure your point of view is heard and understood.
