Building Plymouth Open Sites 2022 - What a week!

Key local, regional and national construction contractors opened major construction sites across Plymouth from the 9th May to the 13th May part of Building Plymouth showcase event – Open Sites Week.

Building Plymouth was proud to offer a unique opportunity for local people to see ‘behind the scenes’ at fifteen major ‘live’ construction sites including an new town build, residential projects, heritage projects and green skills sites as well as office and education site builds.

Aiming to inspire young people, career changers and job seekers to join this thriving and vibrant industry, as well as engaging with local residents, Open Sites will allowed exclusive access to experience how the various buildings and structures are constructed, and the diverse range of skills and professions needed on site to deliver these projects.

Did you know that there are currently 180 different job roles in construction and the built environment?

Contractors loved to be able to show the amazing projects that are happening across the City.

The event was a great success and we are already looking at next years event which will be even bigger!.
