Construction innovators leading the sector’s digital transformation have an opportunity to showcase their new technology to contractor chief executives, industry leaders and government at a new skills event.
Hosted at Moulton College, Northamptonshire, on Thursday 3 March, The Construction Future Skills Event celebrates the companies and technologies building the future – using new technology to boost productivity, sustainability, and attract new talent to the industry.
Among confirmed exhibitors are chief executives from major contractors Stepnell and Kier Group, Flannery Plant’s plant simulator, Winvic’s Health and Safety training VR, Tenstar Simulation’s professional machine education simulator, digital construction solution Oculo, and geo-spatial technology specialists Ridge.
