Building Tomorrow

In a unique communications partnership, the CIOB and ITN Productions have produced a news and current affairs-style programme entitled “Building Tomorrow”, examining today’s construction industry with a focus on the shifting trends that will take the industry forward into a more technologically advanced and digital era.

The film aims to showcase the breadth and depth of the industry's contribution to the UK economy, with broadcast-quality production values. Introduced by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky “Building Tomorrow” features a series of news-style reports, sponsored editorials with key industry leaders as well as exclusive interviews.

A total of 20 organisations have partnered with the CIOB to produce the landmark programme, including Willmott Dixon Energy Services; Autodesk, and the British Ceramic Tile Association.

The collaboration with ITN Productions has also resulted in five shorter films which will be launched throughout 2016.

This is an innovative industry that uses smart technology and systems to overcome today’s challenges and to adapt to whatever the future may hold. It deserves to have its story told and in doing so we hope Building Tomorrow will attract the next generation into one of the most exciting careers out there.

Construction is everywhere as our communities and landscapes develop, but each project requires good management, innovative people, and cutting-edge technology. Our aim was to explore the story of construction and engage with professionals from across the sector.
