InterPro 175 brings together the professions of the built environment to develop a wider collaboration of the connecting services on a building project.

The launch event, led by RTPI, focused on the impact of town planning on the development of the Albert Dock from inception to the present day. Chaired by Ian Wray, Trustee of World Heritage UK, the InterPro 175 series acknowledged those who played a part in Albert Dock's success as a heritage mixed-use project, while looking to the future, lessons learned and parallels in a range of international comparisons.

Katie Wray, chair of RTPI, and organiser of the event, said: "It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Albert Dock to curate a lecture series with InterPro as part of our multi-disciplinary professional development, and the 175th anniversary plans. Albert Dock is a fantastic example of heritage led regeneration and has created the opportunity for the professions to come together and share their knowledge. Close inter-professional working is key to the success of projects and I hope many new connections and partnerships will be formed over the next five years. I am already looking forward to the next event in March 2017!"
