Open Doors 2017 Site Registration Begins!

Build UK members can now register their construction sites to take part in Open Doors 2017 as the event continues to take shape.

The initiative will see Build UK members opening the doors of their sites and offices for a week of exclusive events at some of the UK’s biggest and most engaging construction projects.

The event, which will take place from Monday 27 March to Saturday 1 April 2017, represents a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes of major ‘live’ construction sites across England, Scotland and Wales and find out more about how the buildings in their community are developed, as well as the diverse range of professions that are available within the industry.

The most recent Open Doors week was the most successful to date, with over 3000 visitor slots booked across 138 sites, and next year’s event aims to build on that success and enable even more people to find out more about what the industry can offer them.

Sites involved in 2016 included London’s Design Museum, a children’s hospital in Edinburgh, an Aerospace Centre in Bristol and a state-of-the-art school and sports facility in south Wales, with more high profile and exciting projects expected to register to take part next year.

For more information and to take a look at the sites that are taking part in Open Doors as they are uploaded, see the Open Doors website. Visitor bookings will be available on the Open Doors website from January 2017.
