UKCW 2019


Following the launch of the UK Construction Week Role Models Campaign in March, we have received an overwhelming amount of response and support from the industry. With over 130 top quality entries from construction professionals in all walks of the industry, our judges have had a difficult task of shortlisting the nominees.

There were some truly inspiring stories and examples of how professionals are already making a huge difference in the industry. It is our idea that this campaign will give Role Models extra exposure and the platform to promote the industry’s image, inspiring the next generation of professionals to consider a career in construction.

UKCW Role Models will be asked to speak at UK Construction Week on UKCW stage or individual show stages, to take part in our UKCW student initiative, and they will be asked to write for our Construction Matters Blog. They will be invited to selected events in the coming months, as well as being VIPs at the main event in October.

Role models will also be asked to take part in an outreach programme, going to colleges and schools in the coming months to talk to students and teachers at key stages of their education to explain what inspired them to choose construction as a career and bust any myths around the image of construction.
