This year’s UK Construction Week (UKCW) will be focusing on innovation when it returns to the NEC in Birmingham from 9 to 11 October.
UK Construction Week is the UK’s largest built environment event, housing nine shows: Build Show, Energy 2018, Timber Expo, Building Tech Live, Surface & Materials Show, HVAC 2018, Civils Expo, Plant and Machinery Live, and Grand Designs Live.
This year, the show will focus on innovating and pioneering ideas, projects and products with a new Innovation Trail running through all nine shows, in addition to celebrating new talent with the Role Models initiative.
Nathan Garnett, UKCW event director, explains: “At UK Construction Week we are focused on showcasing innovation from all sectors, and making it easier for any professional to update their CPD, get inspired by amazing people and projects, and walk away with practical information on new technologies, systems, products and collaborations from around the world that would otherwise take months to research.
“UK Construction Week brings together all stakeholders within the built environment across every facet of design, build and product innovation. As the largest event dedicated to knowledge sharing, championing good practice and problem solving, it’s the environment for the whole industry to look, talk, plan, learn and do business; providing answers for what, when, where and how we build our future.”
The show will see speakers cover important topics such as the digital future of construction, diversity, Brexit, tackling the housing crisis, fire safety and much more.
These issues will also be covered in an extensive free CPD programme, with topics chosen by professionals in the industry. Free CPD sessions will also be available from the likes of the BRE, Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, Association for Specialist Fire Protection, Chartered Association of Building Engineers, Concrete Centre, Passivhaus, Association for Project Safety, British Woodworking Federation, Finishes & Interiors Sector and BBA.
Other highlights at this year’s UKCW include:
Visitors will also have the opportunity to see the Construction Enquirer Awards hosted by architect and presenter George Clarke, Voltimum Smart Solutions Awards and the Structural Timber Awards.
