Sites now taking public bookings for Open Doors 2018

Public bookings are now open for all sites registered for Open Doors 2018.

So far 42 sites have been registered and will be opened to the public to inspire young people and career-changers into the industry.

The event is being delivered by Build UK in partnership with the CITB, and in association with Construction News, the Considerate Constructors Scheme and the Construction Skills Certification Scheme.

Construction News is proud to be media partner for Open Doors once again.

Sites registered so far include:

  • Aykon London One, a 50-storey luxury residential tower being built by Multiplex (pictured)
  • Wembley Park, a residential development being delivered by Wates
  • University College Birmingham, for which Kier is the contractor
  • Lincolnshire fire, police and ambulance services joint station, being built by Willmott Dixon

Contractors can still register their sites to take part in Open Doors, which will be running from Monday 19 to Saturday 24 March.

Registration will close by the middle of February.

Last year a record-breaking 5,000 people visited 209 construction sites across England, Scotland and Wales.

In total 97 per cent of visitors rated their visit as good or excellent, with 83 per cent saying they would consider a career in construction, supporting the initiative’s aim of helping to change the industry’s image.
