Construction to open its doors for nationwide event

25/04/2016

CITB and Build UK are joining forces for a week of exclusive, behind-the-scenes events at some of the UK’s best building sites.

New Window Open Doors gives access to dozens of construction projects to inspire people to choose a career in construction and take the next steps to progress into the industry.

From future architects, bricklayers and civil engineers to potential front-of-house sales managers, visitors of all ages and skill sets can get on site at Open Doors events between Monday 13 and Saturday 18 June.

Projects that will be opening their doors include London’s Design Museum, a Proton Beam Therapy Centre in Manchester, a children’s hospital in Edinburgh and a state-of-the-art school and sports facility in south Wales. People interested in getting on site can book at New Window opendoors.construction.   

Once on site, visitors will find out exactly what it takes to create the iconic buildings of the future. They will then be encouraged to find out more about construction at the industry’s careers website – New Window Go Construct.

Suzannah Nichol, Build UK Chief Executive, said: “The construction industry is in a war for talent so we are delighted to be running Open Doors in partnership with CITB.  It’s an exciting chance for anyone seeking a future career, a new challenge, or a change of direction to see first-hand what construction has to offer.  We look forward to welcoming people of all ages onto our member sites in June.”

Lorraine Gregory, CITB Partnerships Manager, said: “Open Doors is an excellent way of inspiring people to consider a career in construction. And it’s a key part of how CITB is supporting the construction industry through Go Construct.

“Over 230,000 new construction jobs will be created across Britain by 2020 and this is a great way to showcase some of them. Potential new entrants will get an exclusive opportunity to see first-hand what it’s like to work in the industry and what a rewarding career construction can be.”
