ICE Thinks

ICE Thinks draws on the wealth of knowledge, experience and skills from across our membership to develop the most informed thinking on the key issues facing everyone working in the built environment.

We are also talking to industry, business and academia to help understand the detailed facts, identify trends and share our point of view.

ICE Thinks is a conduit for everyone’s ideas, views and opinions that builds into a think tank focused on the future challenges that we need to address right now.

What you think really counts

You can join an ICE discussion group or workshop, speak at a seminar, or comment via one of our social media channels. You could host a roundtable, write a thought leadership piece or a blog, or video your point of view.
