The biggest event in any construction company’s calendar, the UK construction week is coming to Birmingham NEC from the 10th to the 12th of October 2017. With nine specialist shows hosted within the Birmingham NEC, there are a stellar line of speakers lined up, and construction companies in North Wales, North West England and even across the UK can get a taste of the UK’s biggest built environment community.
Of course with the fact that change is on the horizon with the ongoing political uncertainty and of course the looming threat of Brexit, the event offers more than ever before with expert panels and debates which are intended to focus upon all this, as well as the British construction industry’s leading issues and trends.
Subjects such as the housing shortage (and the opportunities those provide for house builders, ground workers, and construction companies in North Wales and across the country, given the fact that both Labour and the Conservative Party have detailed addressing the shortage in their manifestos) diversity on construction sites, and of course how to tackle the skills crisis will be included throughout the UK Construction Week’s main stage.
This looks to be a fantastic opportunity that many construction companies across Wales and the UK can take advantage of- as it is more topical than ever. Not only is the construction industry at the forefront of public debate and opinion, the fact that the UK is entering a new era of innovation and change has never been more apparent. There are a number of construction companies in North Wales and beyond which are young professionals, more ready to embrace value adding schemes such as BREEAM and CEEQUAL than ever before, and therefore modular construction, offsite construction, and of course BIM is more accepted than ever before.
All in all, the UK construction industry is absolutely world class and what looks like troubles on the horizons can be turned into very real gains with a little bit of insight – which is exactly what the UK Construction Week 2017 offers.
