Who Was Involved?

About Build UK and Mace Construction

Build UK represents the UK’s construction industry and are passionate about developing the present and future generation of skilled construction workers. Securing the skills required in the construction industry is vital to the UK economy. Without construction workers where would we be? No homes, no roads, no hospitals – it doesn’t bear thinking about. 

Mace is a world-wide consultancy company who specialises in construction. Mace recognises that we live in a rapidly developing world and that construction projects are becoming increasingly complex. Sustainable development requires immediate attention – now more than ever! 

Build UK and Mace Construction joined forces to bring to you a CPD webinar focusing on how to meet the Gatsby Benchmarks. Young people need to understand the pathways available to them in the construction industry. 

Think the construction industry is all about hard hats and hi-vis? We understand why you might think this but let us tell you it’s not! This presumption is misguided and you might be surprised to hear that there are many other careers in the industry! 

Inspiring and influencing young people to consider a career in construction is fundamental to the UK’s built environment. From construction management to quality assurance, the possibilities are endless.
