The London Build is the UK’s largest construction expo, dedicated entirely to opportunities in London and the South of England. London Build is attended by many of the diverse elements of the construction industry, from contractors, developers, government, architects, solution providers and more.
Attendees of the Build includes Heathrow Airport, Mott MacDonald, Lendlease, Brookfield Multiplex, AECOM, Wates, Canary Wharf Group Plc, Mace, Arup, NHS Procurement Partnership, TfL, RICS, Carillion, Kier Living, CITB, Laing O’Rourke, First Base Ltd, plus thousands of other companies.

UK Connect (previously Countrywide Telecoms) attended the London Build on the 25th/26th of October, setting up a creative and informative stand, with a friendly team ready to talk to any curious show attendees about the innovative and breakthrough nature of Site Connect. Over the Wednesday and Thursday Site Connect and the Countrywide Team attracted a wide variety of those working in the construction industry, to chat and exchange fresh, original ideas for the construction industry.
The team has described London Build as an eye-opening event that created networking bonds as well as product and service awareness. “We are thrilled to have been able to take part in an industry-wide event,” Quoted the marketing and sales team, “The atmosphere was brilliant, and being involved in something that brings so many people from one sector together is bound to make creativity and inspiration happen!”

The Countrywide Team attended the London Build with the goal of raising awareness about Site Connect, one of the company’s services which have proved highly popular and useful to the construction industry.
An industry-wide problem is the inability to get connected on-site. The fluctuating nature of a build can make it nearly impossible to co-ordinate times of operation and installation of broadband, with BT average install times ranging from 3 weeks to 3 months. Connectivity is an essential component of most parts of life in the modern age, but especially so when working on team projects requiring communication between different teams – and this is unavoidable in a construction project. Site Connect can be installed in under 10 days and using the latest technology guarantees speeds of up to 100mbps (against the industry average of 30mbps).
Another groundbreaking feature of Site Connect is the reliability and support provided by the Countrywide Team, who monitor the device 24/7 remotely, and carry out speedy technical support (often before the user themselves have detected the problem).
At the London Build, Countrywide and Site Connect went down a storm – and with technical updates being carried out regularly, it is expected to see more groundbreaking and industry-shaping inventions from the Countrywide team.

The team has been fantastic by going above and beyond, getting our broadband installed for us within extremely tight deadlines and ensuring the client relationship is done in an efficient manner.
