Final Call for Construction Case Studies and Property Projects for New Aberdeen Conference

The final call for potential speakers from within the construction industry, who are willing to share their knowledge, experience and lesson’s learned with their industry peers at Aberdeen’s first construction conference, will take place at an evening reception at CMS on Tuesday 14th August, 6-7.30pm. The main purpose of the event is to officially launch Build It Aberdeen, a conference and exhibition being organised by Mearns & Gill in partnership with The Aberdeen Association of Construction Professionals, Aberdeen Society of Architects, Aberdeen Association of Civil Engineers, Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and Women in Property. Build It Aberdeen, which takes place on the 30th November at AECC, and which has the theme ‘Building the Future Together’, aims to directly address some of the challenges currently being faced by the industry. Speakers are invited to share details of educational and inspiring case studies and projects, along with new innovations and solutions, each helping to put the North-East construction and property industry on the map. The full conference programme will be released in early September, with speakers from Aberdeen City Council, Construction Industry Training Board, Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, Equate, Homes for Scotland and The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment already confirmed. Michelle Forth, Director at Safety Scotland and Chairwoman of the Build It conference committee said “We are absolutely delighted with the support that Build it Aberdeen has already received from individuals and businesses across the North-east. The positive response has reinforced our view that it is the right time for us to come together as an industry, to share our experiences, skills and lessons learned, and to begin looking at building the future of North-east construction together.” “Collectively, we are already aware that we need to address issues such as the skills-gap, and a reluctance to embrace innovation within construction, and the launch event on the 14th of August will give companies the opportunity to see what role they can play at the inaugural conference on 30th November. We will also be sharing details of some of the key speakers that we have confirmed for the conference, as well doing the last push for potential presentations.” Spaces at this event are now limited, and if you would like to secure yours, please email by Friday 3rd August.
