Open Doors Weekend to be repeated

24 May 13 The construction industry will once again throw open the gates of some of its biggest sites to the curious public in a second Open Doors Weekend.

After last year’s event was deemed a public relations success for the industry, the initiative is being repeated on 27-28 September 2013.

The UK Contractors Group and the Scottish Contractors Group, in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Building, the Construction Industry Training Board and the Considerate Constructors Scheme, are once again encouraging members to open up their sites. The prime motive is to offer young people an opportunity to look behind the scenes at major construction projects across the country, and perhaps be inspired to a career in the industry.

“The weekend is a fantastic opportunity to not only get a taste of what a career in construction can offer, but the chance to satisfy your curiosity about what goes on behind those hoardings,” said UKCG director Stephen Ratcliffe.
