Three major motifs
Offsite construction is a recurring theme; it’s the future of the way we build. This part of the event is supported by the Modular and Portable Building Association and the Structural Timber Association.
The present and future of BIM. Experts will share insights on delivering collaborative 3D BIM at the Building Research Establishment’s BIM Prospects Theatre.
Building safety is an absolute priority. Visitors will benefit from free CPD advice covering changes to legislation, guidance on product safety and fire prevention strategies.
