THE CHARTERED INSTITUTE OF BUILDING (CIOB) PRESENTS ‘REMASTERING THE FUTURE’, A COLLABORATION WITH ITN PRODUCTIONS
LAUNCHING AT UK CONSTRUCTION WEEK
In a unique communications partnership, the Chartered Institute of Building and ITN Productions are producing a news and current affairs-style programme which explores the opportunities, challenges and future of the UK construction industry.
‘Remastering the Future’ will bring to life the UK’s construction industry by looking at the knowledge, technology and skills driving the sector forward. The programme will explore the innovations that are taking the sector to a new level as well as the training and apprenticeships that are bringing new recruits to the construction landscapes. ‘Remastering the Future’ will also look at preserving old buildings and adapting them for future use, at a time when land is scarce and there are demands for building stock to be retained, we will look at how the construction industry has to respond with quality and ethical standards.
‘Remastering the Future’ will premiere at UK Construction Week in Birmingham on 10th October on the Regeneration & Development Hub at 4.30pm. The programme will form part of an extensive communications campaign featuring CIOB members, industry partners, government decision makers, as well as relevant journalists, writers and bloggers.
Drawing upon ITN’s 60 year heritage and expertise in storytelling, we will look at the exciting future of the industry and celebrate the UK’s expertise in construction as well as looking at what else is needed to continue this success. The programme will identify how efficient management, ethics, continual professional development, sustainability and the localism agenda all contribute to the future of this vital sector.
Chris Blythe, CEO, Chartered Institute of Building said, said: “Over the last three years our partnership with ITN Productions has helped us unlock some amazing stories in construction. Through these programmes we have showcased some of the extraordinary talent in the industry as well as some bold innovations to celebrate the achievements of an industry that shapes all our lives. With 25% of the UK’s building stock pre-1919 our new programme will explain the importance of maintaining our heritage, and showcase the 21st century technology being used for adapting and conserving the buildings around us.”
Simon Shelley, Head of Industry News, ITN Productions, said: “ITN Productions is delighted to be partnering with the Chartered Institute of Building and supporting the Construction Manager of the Year Awards. We’re excited to embark on a programme that explores the knowledge, advanced technologies, and skills that go into creating the buildings of the future – often achieved by re-purposing and conserving heritage buildings from our past. We’re excited to embark on this project and engage with key organisations and people dedicated to shaping construction at a such a poignant time for the industry.”
