North England Build, the leading new construction show, is set to occur on the 27th and 28th of April. It focusses on construction projects and developments in Northern England, and is a great chance to create new business connections and network with industry professionals across the UK. The event will feature the major contractors, suppliers, architects, developers and many more construction industry professionals from across the region.

News over recent times has focused on the skills shortage within the industry which is putting the breaks on growth within the sector resulting in a number of companies having to turn down contracts. To address this, visitors will now also benefit from the go-to place to find the future of construction at the North England Build Skills Hub.

While the current skills shortage is an undeniable cause for concern, North England Build will be launching the skills hub. This zone will bring together some of the UK's leading universities, associations and talent procurement experts working within the construction industry, to provide an area for people to learn about the latest training and employment opportunities in the north of England. 

Opening the conference will be Dr. David Hancock, Head of Construction at the Cabinet Office, who will be examining the government's 2025 construction strategy outlined by the previous government and updated earlier this year.

Chris Chivers, CIOB President, who will also be chairing a panel discussion at the event, said: “North England Build is set to showcase why there is about to be a better balance between the rate of growth in the South East and the North in the near future. It is no coincidence that construction employers, educationalists and recruiters will be mixing together to discuss the employment opportunities that will come as a result. Chartered professionals like CIOB members will have a key role to play and we look forward to taking the message of professionalism into the Expo.”
