Sussex AECB group runs in Tandem with the Brighton group who meet on the first Tuesday of every month, we will dovetail with these meetings. We aim to deliver talks on a bi monthly basis that educate and simultaneously stimulate debate, always a rather easy task with our members! The AECB is all about building knowledge so we are aiming to bring contractors, designer and clients together to further the AECB name as the place to go for for building knowledge. We aim to arrange site visits as part of this in the warmer months. If you have a topic you’d like to see covered, or a project you think might be of interest please do let us know. Ideas and suggestions for the group are very welcome – please contact the group leader below.   Meet the group leaders:
