As one of the quickest growing areas within the construction industry, the smart buildings sector will be represented at this year’s UK Construction Week event. Smart Buildings 2016 is a dedicated trade show, promoting the latest innovations within the developing sector.

As the first major event since Brexit, Smart Buildings 2016 is set to play a significant role in shaping strategy. A series of seminar sessions will reveal how the sector can be integrated into construction further.
