Open Doors 2019 – Site Registration is Live!

Open Doors Week 2019 will take place from Monday 18 March to Saturday 23 March and the website is now officially live for members to upload their sites!

Open Doors, delivered by Build UK in partnership with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) as part of the Inspiring Construction campaign, sees Build UK members open sites for the public to go ‘behind the scenes’ and showcase the huge variety of careers available in the industry.

The skills shortage in Construction is one of the main focuses within the industry and Open Doors is a fantastic opportunity to inspire and recruit the next generation and career changers to choose a career in construction.

For 2019, Build UK and the Open Doors partners, CITB, Considerate Constructors Scheme, CSCS, Go Construct and media partner Construction News are aiming to continue to build on the success of previous years’ and enable even more people to go behind the hoardings to experience valuable insights into construction.

This year Open Doors would like to encourage not only the fantastic sites across Great Britain to open, but the offices, factories and workshops that all play huge parts in this industry.

The whole supply chain can participate so that all specialist contractors, main contractors and developers are able to showcase the work they do.

From the acquisitions departments of the developers, to the bricklayers on site, Open Doors showcases the variety of career options available in the construction sector.
