The full schedule has been announced on UK Construction Week’s website. The expected audience of 55,00 visitors will be able to view discussions, debates and knowledge sharing from 1,000 exhibitors at the event.
Each of the nine sessions will take place over the trade only days between 6-8 October. They will consist of an hour-long panel discussion, covering key topics from house building to government policy and BIM.
Tuesday morning will begin proceedings with a keynote presentation featuring the newly appointed minister for construction.
The presentation will focus on parliamentary plans and policies for the construction industry following the general election.
It will give the incoming government the opportunity to communicate how it intends to support construction while in power.
Day one will also have a heavy focus on the economy. At the forefront of the debate will be seminars discussing how to protect construction from economic weakness and improving the industry’s reputation among investors and policy makers.
The session will feature speaks from Glenigan, the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists and the Federation of Master Builders.
The second day of discussions will target the skills shortage facing the construction industry and how to attract and retain top talent – led by Marie-Clade Hemming from Civil Engineering Contractors Association and Rupert Scott from TRADA.
Thursday’s sessions will look at procurement and the supply chain, asking how different disciplines within the industry can work smarter together.
The National Federation of Builders’ Paul Bogle will explore how contractors can make the most of the public procurement platform. The day will then round off with a dedication session on the outlook of BIM in construction.
Visitors attending the week-long event will also be able to attend Grand Designs Live, the Build Show, Timber Expo, the Surface and Materials Show, Energy 2015, Kitchens & Bathroom Live, Plant & Machinery Live, HVAC 2015 and Smart Buildings 2015.
