22 Bishopsgate registers for Open Doors 2017

22 Bishopsgate has become the first project to announce its participation in Open Doors Week 2017.

The high-profile London tower project became the first site to be uploaded to the Open Doors website this week.

It is being built by Multiplex for client Lipton Rogers, both members of Build UK.

The developer signed the main build contract with Multiplex back in October, in a deal worth £500m-£600m.

Other contractors are encouraged to put sites forward for public tours next year, with Build UK targeting at least six sites from each of its members.

The Open Doors initiative is being delivered by Build UK in partnership with the CITB, and in association with Considerate Constructors Scheme and the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS).

Construction News is once again the initiative’s official media partner.

Open Doors Week 2017 will take place from 27 March to 1 April, and bookings will be open to the public in January.

The most recent Open Doors event was the biggest to date, with more than 3,000 visitors booked across 138 sites, with even more expected to be open this year.

High-profile sites such as the Queensferry Crossing, London’s Design Museum, 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.
