Teambuild 2013 tackles site in Historic Edinburgh- Enter Now!

Teambuild is a unique cross disciplinary competition for the construction industry, held over one weekend in November every year. It brings together young building professionals, such as architects, engineers, contractors and surveyors, from across the UK, and challenges them to improve communications and working relationships between the various disciplines and learn from each other, whilst tackling a number of design, procurement and construction tasks. It is an excellent networking opportunity.

This year Teambuild is delighted to be working with new site partners, Balfour Beatty and the University of Edinburgh. Together they have generously offered the exciting Holyrood Student Accommodation project as the basis for this year’s competition. Teams will be challenged by tasks based on the real site, testing their collaboration and communication skills to the limit. This year’s site offers an excellent insight into a project procured, delivered and operated using BIM: a masterclass in cutting-edge collaborative methods for ambitious young people in the industry.

Having learnt how to pull together in synergistic partnership, the winning team is awarded £1,500 and an invitation to join the Worshipful Company of Constructors, in addition to the industry kudos of being crowned TeamBuild champions for the year.

Teambuild has been running for over 20 years. Past winners have gone on to gain promotion and recognition within the industry, working in countries such as Australia, Canada, UAE and Hong Kong, as TeamBuild has positively impacted on their careers. Past participants have gained high profile roles in Carillion, Wates, and directorships at HOK, AECOM and other international firms.
