Regional Event to Maximise National Opportunities

The Midlands Construction Summit

Over the last six months, as part of the industrial strategy, the UK Government has been working with the construction industry to develop a long-term vision – the result is, ‘Construction 2025’ – a joint strategy which sets out how industry and Government will work together to put Britain at the forefront of global construction. We have world-class expertise in architecture, design and engineering and are leading the way in sustainable construction solutions. The sector has considerable growth opportunities within the global construction market which is forecast to grow by over 70% by 2025.

The Construction 2025 strategy is a substantial document and the Midlands Construction Summit is an opportunity for regional construction related businesses to gain an in-depth understanding, explore and harness the future opportunities presented in a joint industrial strategy.

Taking place on 27 November 2014, at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham – this conference and exhibition style event is presented by the Built Environment Hub, the Midlands body tasked with driving construction product and process innovation in the region.

The Midlands Construction Summit will guide and help the Midlands built environment sector define their route map for grasping the strategic opportunities in a lively and structured way, allowing for plenty of input from industry leaders and is your opportunity to hear directly from Peter Hansford, the Government’s Chief Construction Advisor.

Following his keynote presentation, Peter Hansford will join the panel for an open Q & A session and this will present an excellent opportunity for delegates to pose questions directly to one of the leading contributors of the strategy document.

Speakers include Andrew Round, Assistant Director of Planning & Development at Birmingham City Council; Tony Hyde, Chairman of Thomas Vale Construction and Director of Bouygues UK together with Oliver Novakovic, Technical and Innovation Director at Barratt Developments.
