All the details of 2018’s Build Show at UKCW

  • 10 Jul 2018

This year’s Build Show, sponsored by Easy-Trim, is aiming to give builders the most well-informed, forward-looking predictions, innovations and insights they need, as part of UK Construction Week (UKCW) which returns to the NEC from 9 to 11 October this year.

The Show will feature the latest advancements in building products, policy and projects, all designed to help builders stay up-to-date and one step ahead of their competitors.

Exhibitors at the event will include: Aggregate Industries, Combilift, Concrete Centre, Containex, Easy Trim Roofing and Construction, Finning Cat, Forticrete, G&B North West, Gripple, Hikoki, HP, Karcher, KwikFit, OM Safety Solutions, Portakabin, Soprema, SPSenvirowall, Styrene Packaging & Insulation, Trade Point, Trimaco, and Xella.

This year also sees the addition of four new sections of the show: Doors, Windows and Glass; Roofing, Cladding and Insulation; and Tools, Health and Safety.

The Offsite Theatre will offer sessions on all aspects of premanufacturing, volumetric and other types of offsite construction. With almost every volume housebuilder now actively exploring these methods of construction, it’s essential to understand the new opportunities that this presents.

The Innovation Trail will also offer visitors the chance to speak to a variety of manufacturers about the solutions their products can offer.

In addition, the Regeneration Hub will see experts such as Jules Pipe, the GLA’s deputy mayor for planning, regeneration and skills; Tim Bloxham, director of Urban Splash; and Brian Berry, director of the Federation of Master Builders, discuss the latest developments, trends, innovations and projects.

IEMA will also be holding its conference addressing sustainability on 10 October and after hearing from the experts, delegates will be able to meet environmentally-conscious manufacturers such as Kedel, a company that manufactures all its products from recycled plastic.

It will be the third year of the BMF Pavilion which will host the first BMF Young Merchants Conference on 11 October, with guest speaker Olympian Steve Backley OBE. The theme for the conference is ‘Building for the Future’ and fits in perfectly with the overall theme of this year’s UKCW. BMF members exhibiting at the show include: Danosa, Fibo, Intact, Kingspan, Marley Plumbing & Drainage, and Marsh Industries.

Visitors can also expect debtates on the UKCW stage on major national and international construction issues and an extensive programme of free CPD sessions.

Jamie Govier, managing director of Build Show’s major sponsor, Easy-Trim Roofing and Construction Products, said: “This year the Easy-Trim stand will take a glimpse into the future of British manufacturing. We have come a long way yet our journey has just begun. Join us on stand B610 to find out more.”
