SFS, global building envelope specialists, will open the doors to its new construction innovation hub alongside a distinguished panel of speakers on Thursday 2 May.
The Academy is SFS’ new learning space at its UK HQ in Leeds. The hub is designed to connect professionals and the future generation of construction to trade knowledge, network, learn and share ideas.
The launch will see SFS host an evening this Thursday, providing key insight from leading players across a spectrum of specialities within the construction industry.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about topics such as the future of architecture, developing new talent, construction 4.0, diversification in the workforce, and women in engineering and construction.
The event brings together a range of speakers and the panel includes well-known architectural historian, broadcaster and writer Tom Dyckhoff (pictured below).
As well as Tom, the panel will feature managing directors of key companies in construction, speakers from local universities, and David Wigglesworth, MD of SFS UK.
David commented: “The way buildings are designed and constructed is changing and evolving at a faster rate than ever before.
“Everybody from all corners of construction is facing new challenges, from 5D BIM, to solving the skills shortage problem, to working collaboratively, and bringing in much needed efficiencies.
“The Academy is one of SFS’s core pillars to help the industry to focus on these challenges. The space is designed to share thought leadership initiatives and allow different professions of construction to come together.”
Starting at 6:00pm and ending at 9:30pm, the event is open to everybody with an interest in construction, from architects and specifiers to structural engineers and students. The evening will include networking opportunities, a drinks reception and canapés.
Following the launch, The Academy at SFS will be the focal point for delivering CPDs, hosting networking events, engaging the next generation of professionals, while SFS experts will be on hand to provide product demonstrations and technical insight.
There is free parking for attendees, and tickets are available for up to 70 guests. To book tickets and for more about the event and SFS, click here
