Aberdeen is set to host a brand new construction and property conference, Build It, which will take place at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on November 30.

The conference and exhibition is being organised by local creative marketing agency, Mearns & Gill, in partnership with the Aberdeen Association of Construction Professionals, Aberdeen Association of Civil Engineers, Aberdeen Society of Architects, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and Women in Property.

The one day event, entitled ‘Building the Future Together’, will bring together 14 speakers from right across the industry, to directly address some of the challenges currently being faced, along with providing a platform to share educational and inspiring case studies and projects.

The exhibition will offer companies the chance to showcase their innovative products and solutions, falling within a range of key themes that include ‘Addressing the Skills Gap’, ‘Importance of Innovation’ and ‘Mediation in Construction’.

Mike Wilson, managing director, Mearns & Gill, said: “We are proud to be part of Aberdeen’s first construction and property conference, and are delighted that the event has already received so much support. As a result of our work on the Trades Awards, an annual ceremony to reward excellence within the North-east construction industry, we are well aware of the outstanding, innovative work that is being done in the area. This new conference will give professionals a chance to share their expertise and lessons learned to the benefit of the wider industry.”

Michelle Forth, director at Safety Scotland and conference committee chair, added: “It is an exciting time to be part of the North-east construction industry, with so many important projects about to come to completion, and many more about to start. However, as an industry we must get better at sharing our successes, along with our lessons learned and innovative techniques, many of which are as a result of these projects. The aim of this inaugural conference is to bring together industry experts who are happy to share their case studies, and create an inspiring and thought-provoking day of learning and professional development.”

The conference committee are putting together the programme for the inaugural event, and if you would like to be considered for one of the 14 speaking slots, please contact Isla Stewart on
