CIC-ConstructionSkills sets a challenge for professionals

This event has finished

Do you want to meet other Built Environment professionals in your region in a competitive but informal environment? The Construction Challenge is one way you can do just that while promoting better teamwork and increased interdisciplinary understanding among professionals.

Teams at each regional competition will be asked to complete a practical task. This may, for example, involve building a model from a selection of materials provided on the night. The exact task for the evening will be revealed to teams at the start of the event. All tasks will however make full use of a variety of skills and knowledge possessed by different Built Environment professionals. To achieve the most success participants will be required to work together with their team members.
Events will be held in Manchester, Bristol and Guildford in November 2006. Each Construction Challenge event aims to:
• promote success through teamwork
• promote management and leadership skills
• demonstrate how construction professionals must work together to achieve common objectives
• be an enjoyable and competitive night’s entertainment.
Any organisation working in the Built Environment can enter a team of between 3 – 5 people. This includes, among others, consultants and universities. The only requirements are that team members must:
• represent a cross-section of professional disciplines, and
• all be aged under 30 on the day of the competition.
There should be no more than five members per team, who ideally should be from different professional disciplines, although this may not be possible in every case. You may for example decide to enter a team comprising of a surveyor, a town planner, an architect, a project manager and an engineer.

The events are free – and there will be prizes for the winners! Drinks and a buffet will also be provided.
