THE B1M has today released “Now Hiring: The World’s Greatest Industry” – a inspiring new film that highlights the impact of the construction sector and some of the incredible people choosing to build their careers here.
Developed in association with Bluebeam, the documentary demonstrates the role that people in construction play in shaping our world – taking decisions that mould our homes, schools, workplaces and cities.
The documentary was last night screened to a sold-out crowd at Everyman Cinema in London’s Kings Cross. Several thousand people watched a simultaneous live broadcast of the event on YouTube.
Above: A panel representing students, technology providers, academia and industry employers discussed the challenges of attracting people to the architecture, engineering and construction sectors.
Following the screening, a panel discussion explore some of the opportunities and challenges raised by the film in more detail.
Panellists included David Milne of main contractor BAM, Bo Mahs of KEA Copenhagen, Niya Borissova, currently studying at UCL and Emily Heppard who leads Bluebeam’s Academic Programme. You can watch the full discussion back in the video below.
