The ACN is holding its third annual conference for Residential Construction Network and Education Construction Network over two days.

With a plethora of thought provoking sessions, our speakers will be discussing the design and construction of schools and colleges, homes and communities abroad, and looking at the influences they derive from UK models.  Conversely we will be looking at how, here in the UK, we are influenced by international design.
