Open Doors calls for showcase projects after 2017 success

Construction firms can now register to take part in Open Doors Week 2018.

Build UK members can sign up their ongoing projects for the initiative, which will see live sites opened to the public.

Open Doors, which is organised Build UK and the CITB with Construction News as its media partner, aims to showcase the different careers available in construction.

Members of the public will be able to book their place on a site visit from January ahead of the event, which takes place 19-24 March next year.

This year’s event saw more than 5,000 visitor bookings across 209 construction sites in England, Scotland and Wales.

Around 83 per cent of visitors from Open Doors 2017 said they would consider a career in construction as a result of their visit.

Build UK chief executive Suzannah Nichol said: “We are extremely proud of the fantastic success of Open Doors 2017 and look forward to another record-breaking year in 2018.

“Open Doors is a fantastic initiative highlighting the exciting work that our industry is undertaking in cities, towns and local communities across the country.”

CITB chief executive Sarah Beale said We are delighted to be partnering up with Build UK once again for Open Doors.

“We know that once people get to see how exciting being on a live construction site is, and the huge range of professions and trades that work together, they see the industry in a new light.”
