Interbuild revived, spectacular Grand Design, biometric building site access + latest products & projects

UK Construction Week

Exciting news about the launch of UK Construction Week, bringing together the new Build Show alongside Grand Designs Live, KBB and 6 other dedicated events all in one busy week at the NEC in the autumn. Could this revive the big building showcase that we havent seen since the heyday of Interbuild? This kind of show still thrives in Europe and I think UK Construction Week will provide a great platform for the industry.

New products on Buildingtalk include the next generation of heat pumps; biometric access control to building sites; wood pellet storage that saves biomass fuel costs; and our video of the week shows some great new radiators.

Top project stories include a spectacular Grand Design, flooring protection for the UKs greenest motorway service station and new rooflights for a Heathrow Airport hangar

News from Twitter this week included the latest ONS construction output figures that confirm the long term trend for construction growth, housebuilding rebounding on the back of public sector projects and the UKTI highlighting big overseas opportunities
