Teambuild UK

Alex MacLaren is a Trustee of this Charitable Trust. Our aims are the advancement of Education in the Construction Industry in the UK.

Teambuild is a unique training event. It is a cross-disciplinary construction competition, held over a weekend in November every year. 

The competition seeks a new form of pedagogy which engages the gap between industry, institute and academia, between real and hypothetical practice. We strive to achieve excellence in teaching and learning. The competition develops every year and has a rolling executive team made up from past participants ensuring the event continues to stay relevant and push boundaries in education and vocational training.
