“I’m proud to support the #IBuiltThis initiative as we look to promote to the public, and the next generation of construction professionals, the variety and excitement the world of construction offers. I encourage everyone to enter the competition. Get creative as we demonstrate construction’s impact on all aspects of our lives.” Amanda Clack FRICS, RICS President.
All finalists will also have their images streamed at the exhibition. The prizes will be awarded in November 2017. Nathan Garnett, Event Director of UK Construction Week said “we are delighted to support the #iBuiltThis2017 with FIS Skills. The core aims of this campaign chime directly with our own so I hope that together we can raise some real awareness about the dynamism in the sector, show why people are proud of their work and encourage new talent into the sector. We look forward to showcasing the very best work at the show between 10th-12th October at the NEC in Birmingham.”
