In BBB style, our November event will see a social evening of talks and networking with our peers from across the industry: a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, and join a united ambition to change the face of the built environment, and hear advice from some incredible role models. Our guest speakers are:

Jean Venables CBE - Civil Engineer, First Female President of the ICE 2008 - 2009

Danna Walker - Founder of Built by Us, Director of Architects for Change and FLUID Diversity Mentoring

Louise Brooke-Smith - Property and Planning Advisor, First Female President of RICS 2014 - 2015

Young Ambassador of The Prince's Trust

Both men and women are welcome to attend to show our united ambition to change the face of the built environment and welcome in the future leaders of our industry.


Built by Both’s main objective is to inspire young women to embark on careers within the built environment and show credit to those already working in our industry. We aim to promote this initiative via educational experience days for students and networking events for young women to meet inspirational role models. With an emphasis on the current demand for housing in the UK, partnered with a skills shortage and poor representation of women in these roles, we are really excited to inspire the next generation of builders, engineers, architects, planners, developers and more.

We are doing this via a series of Student Experience Days and INSPIRE//NEWORK evenings. We have invited female university students to attend a Student Experience day: with skills workshops from specialists in different sectors of the industry, careers workshops and insight, visits to flagship Barratt London sites, and more.
