Open Doors: Sites across the country will be open to the public between 18-23 March

Open Doors 2019 takes place between 18-23 March. It aims to allow the public to see how the buildings and structures in their communities are constructed and find out about the diverse range of skills and professions needed on site, to promote careers in construction.

The most recent Open Doors event saw over 5,200 bookings across more than 275 construction sites in England, Scotland and Wales.

Main contractors involved included Willmott Dixon, BAM Construct UK, Galliford Try, Kier, Taylor Woodrow, ISG, Skanska and Balfour Beatty among others.

Delivered by Build UK, in partnership with CITB (under the banner of Go Construct) this regular event offers a unique chance to see behind the scenes at major “live” construction sites across England, Scotland and Wales.

This year’s diverse sites vary from the UCLH Proton Beam Therapy Centre Phase 4 in London to the listed  building of Dixons Sixth Form Academy in Leeds.
