‘Build It – Aberdeen Construction and Property Conference’ is set to return for 2019 for a second year, taking place at P&J Live on Friday 29th November 2019.
Build It was launched to provide a platform for companies around the North-east and beyond, to share inspiring and educational case studies, lessons learned and innovations with over 200 industry professionals.
An accompanying exhibition of 22 companies will also act as a showcase for the latest products, services and techniques that are currently being used within construction, or other industries that might face similar challenges.
The underlying theme for 2019 is ‘Embracing Innovation, Technology and Skills Development to Achieve a Sustainable Future’, with presentation topics including digitalisation, building for a sustainable future, safety and the environment, wellbeing at work, and attracting the next generation of talent.
This year’s keynote speaker is Professor Sandra Halliday, Principal of Gaia Research within the Gaia Group, who were established to combine architecture, engineering, landscape, community consultation and, master-planning services, to drive advances in the sustainable design of buildings and places.
Michelle Forth, Director at Safety Scotland and chair of the Build It conference committee said: “Thanks to the support that we received from the North-east construction industry last year, we are delighted to be organising Build It for a second year. This support is a direct reflection of the passion and expertise present within the region, and the mindset slowly changing to one where companies now see that sharing details of successes, and sometimes even failures that have been overcome, is a positive thing for the industry.
“We are extremely excited to be holding the conference at P&J Live, undoubtedly one of the most exciting construction projects to take place in Scotland in recent times, and built to the highest environmental standards, making it the perfect venue to host Build It 2019.”
