UK Construction Week – a major industry highlight in the UK calendar – returns this October with a new virtual format.


The online event, which will take place 5–9 October 2020, includes a conference with four content stages covering different kinds of discussion.


Content stages

The Digital Construction Hub: Delivered by the UK BIM Alliance, hear why the digital revolution is unavoidable and what is next for digital in UK Construction.


The Regeneration Hub: Urban landscapes are changing fast, and the demand for suburban living is steeply climbing. What does this mean for how we deliver social value, and the drive to improve quality construction post-Grenfell?


The Net Zero Hub: As we “build back better”, are we building back to meet our net Zero targets for 2050? This stage features five days of presentations and Q&As to assess what needs to be done to get to Net Zero in 2050.


Construction Game Changers: Ministers of State, industry leaders, the Construction Leadership Council (CLC), entrepreneurs and UKCW Role Models will all debate how we continue on the CLC’s Roadmap to Recovery.


A few of the keynote speakers expected to take the stage to discuss the Roadmap to Recovery include Construction Minister Nadhim Zahawi; Keith Waller, Programme Director for the Construction Innovation Hub; and Ann Bentley, Global Board Director at Rider Levett Bucknall and member of the Construction Leadership Council.
