South East Construction Expo

Leading lights in the construction industry will meet at the one-day Expo at the South of England Event Centre in Ardingly for the second year after a hugely successful event there last year, when more than 2,000 leaders from the region’s construction industry met buyers, explored new projects, networked and sampled the industry’s latest technology.

The trade show will showcase the region’s largest range of construction products and services and is a ‘must’ for anyone in development, property and construction.

This story has captured the imagination of several publications and radio stations in advance of the Expo

The Xella Silka Challenge is to complete the construction of the structural walls of a one bedroom apartment ready to receive the Precast Floors, LIVE at the SE Construction Expo.

The build progress will be visible throughout the day and attendees to the show are encouraged to visit the ‘Xella Lounge’ situated behind the construction area to learn more about the Silka Element System. Visitors will be able to observe the MFS team hard at work laying each Silka block using the Lissmac mini-cranes in approximately six minutes.

The speed of construction has to be seen to be believed!
