Open Doors 2023

Sir Robert McAlpine opened its doors during Open Doors Week 2023.

13 of our live construction sites took part in Open Doors Week 2023, an annual event that offers people a unique opportunity to learn about the construction industry and explore the exciting career prospects available with Sir Robert McAlpine.


1 BroadgateOpen Doors Week is delivered by Build UK, the leading representative organisation for the UK construction industry. This initiative brings together construction companies and educational institutions to showcase the industry to young people and job seekers. This year's event ran from 13th - 18th March 2023 as 13 of our live construction sites opened the doors to provide site tours, workshops, and talks. The site visits also offered insights into the latest technologies and innovations in the industry, as well as providing opportunities to talk to current employees and ask questions about their roles.

It's an interesting talk that uncovers the breadth of knowledge and experience that goes into a major construction project, as well as the plan behind the scheme as a whole.
