Open Doors 2017 will take place from Monday 27 March to Saturday 1 April next year, Build UK has announced.
Construction News will once again be official media partner to the Open Doors initiative, delivered by Build UK in partnership with the CITB.
This year’s event saw 138 construction sites open up to the public, with more than 3,000 bookings made across England, Scotland and Wales.
High-profile sites such as the Queensferry Crossing, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Earls Court redevelopment all took part in the 2016 event, which was the first to take place over a full week.
Build UK members from across the supply chain are encouraged to participate in Open Doors by volunteering to open their sites.
Build UK chief executive Suzannah Nichol said: “Open Doors is a fantastic initiative which helps tackle our skills challenges by demonstrating the huge impact of the industry on the UK’s economy and local communities.
“We are extremely proud of achieving record numbers as well as some fantastic feedback this year, and are being even more ambitious for next year’s event.
“We can’t wait to get started, and are aiming to get even more sites and visitors involved as we look to harness the success of Open Doors 2016.”
