UK Construction Week

Two Major Events

Two Major Events

Roadmap to recovery plan unveiled by UK Construction Week

UK Construction Week will stage London and Birmingham editions in 2021 in 18-month plan to capitalise on Government construction commitments.

The UK is entering a period of unparalleled government investment in homes and infrastructure. With £40bn committed to infrastructure and housing in recent weeks, it is clear this government sees the construction industry as a key driver to economic recovery.

As the leading event platform for the construction industry, UK Construction Week (UKCW) have been working with key stakeholders to create an 18 month UKCW road to recovery that capitalises on the government commitments made towards the construction industry through major infrastructure investment and the new green homes grants.

NEW: UK Construction Week London

UKCW Londonwill connect the whole supply chain in an event designed to oil the wheels of construction commerce at London's ExCeL on 4-6 May 2021. With Government support and education on how to tap into major investment opportunities in Housing and Infrastructure, UKCW London will be the must attend construction event next Spring.

Co-located with Grand Designs Live, UKCW London will provide a way for sustainable construction products to capitalise on the consumer demand created by the £3bn Green Homes Grant. UKCW London will benefit from 4 established summits staged at the same time, Quality, Wellbeing, Diversity and Marketing.

UK Construction Week Birmingham

UKCW Birminghamwill return with a bang in 2021 as we deliver the UK’s largest built environment event at the NEC Birmingham on 5-7 October 2021. Along with four conferences, 15 CPD and Workshop hubs and three major award presentations, UK Construction Week Birmingham 2021 will mark a celebratory focal point as construction can share learnings from the recovery and look to a bright future.

The UKCW road to recovery will also be partnered by The Times, with editorial support for the event.

UK Construction Week will also run an online conference on 5-9 October 2020 where industry leaders will debate and scope out what a successful recovery looks like. More details to follow. 

Nathan Garnett, Director for UK Construction Week: “The pandemic has put construction in the spotlight, from building NHS hospitals to pioneering COVID secure sites, and it has met all of the challenges head on. Now it has been asked to be the catalyst for the economy, and drive the recovery, and we will use all of our events and digital communities to assist in meeting that challenge head on as well”.

There is a significant job to do and UK Construction Week in London and Birmingham in the Spring and Autumn will assist in further connecting an industry that has come together like never before. CPA are pleased to be part of this exciting programme.”

David Hancock, Construction Director, Infrastructure Projects Authority

" Government is embarking on one of the most substantial periods of investment in construction and infrastructure in history, with projects across the UK designed to improve the infrastructure of our country. These were important prior to the pandemic, but now take on the added importance of supporting our economic recovery. The IPA is therefore delighted to be involved in events like UK Construction Week designed to boost construction activity in these areas”.

John Newcomb, CEO, Builders Merchants Federation

“BMF members have been exceptionally busy over the lock down and have provided a crucial service to keep things moving. We are delighted that UK Construction Week will be providing an 18-month plan that allows us all to recover and adapt to the new normal, and capitalise on the opportunities now appearing for the sector”.

Nadhim Zahawi, Minister for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
