We’re seeking entries for this year’s competition!
REGISTER NOW at https://www.teambuilduk.com/register for a chance to earn 4 days CPD whilst competing for a cash prize of £1500.
The 26th annual Teambuild Future Leaders competition is taking place this year on the 18th-20th November and we’re open for entries from multi-disciplinary teams and individuals interested in taking part in this one-of-a-kind event.
About the Competition
Teambuild is a cross-disciplinary construction competition, in which teams are challenged to compete in a simulation of the design and construction process for the development of a real site. Attracting competitors from major companies representing all disciplines within our industry, it is not only a fantastic training event, but also an unparalleled opportunity to build networks between young staff and between different companies.
How to Enter
The competition is open to entries from all construction industry professionals aged under 30 on the 1st January 2017. The first stage of entering is to visit https://www.teambuilduk.com/register and register your interest with us; the deadline for registration is the 31st August.
Teams should contain six individuals who represent a good spread of disciplines. It’s popular to put together a team with members from companies you work with regularly, as a way to develop relationships between project teams and advance the careers of promising members of staff.
If bringing together a full team is difficult we offer a ‘matchmaking’ service – so partial teams, or individuals would be welcomed and supported to link up with others and form a team!
What are the Benefits of Competing?
The intense competition format is recognised by all major institutions as equivalent to four days CPD, with the competition funded by CIOB, IStructE and CIBSE as well as being supported by ICE, CIC, ICES, IMechE, RIBA, RICS and RTPI. Our downloadable A4 PDF flyer demonstrates the breadth of support for the event from the industry, from both companies and professional bodies. It is perfect for showing your line manager the benefits of you entering! On top of the £1500 prize for the talented winners, every entrant benefits from the excellent training and an unparalleled opportunity to build your network at a crucial stage of their careers, with many Teambuild ‘alumni’ having gone on to run many successful and innovative construction businesses including Expedition Engineering, Carillion, HOK, and Architecture 00:/.
