Section 2

You’ll hear a presentation on the conference and meeting facilities. 

Welcome to this short and you have my word it will be short. Presentation on the conference and meeting facilities available at the construction education center. The construction education center is the established focal point for many major activities connected with building materials, construction, architecture and design. And even some activities outside those areas. For almost 70 years, it has remained at the heart of the industry. And today plays host to many important events. Receiving over a hundred thousand visitors, trainees and delegates throughout the year, the construction education center provides the perfect venue for a wide range of business, educational and social functions including conferences, seminars, meetings, special events, product launches, and press events, exhibitions, presentations, lectures and training classes. Our team of experienced personnel is on hand to ensure your event runs smoothly. And our aim is to remove the normal worries and concerns from function organizers, so that events are both cost-effective and anxiety-free. Some of our recent clients include design for homes, the association of building engineers, learn direct, the London housing federation and even the college of law. A full range of equipment is available for use including a slide projector which is available for half or whole days, video and monitor, 35-millimeter carousel slide projector with infrared remote control and screen, flip charts and accessories, laser pointers and lectins. Other audio-visual equipment can be provided as well as access to broadband internet services. Details are provided on request. My business card is attached to the brochures, you’ve been given. Allow me to provide you with a brief introduction to our range of rooms. On this slide, you can see the main conference room. We call it the London room. Spacious, isn’t it? This room has the advantage of central movable panels, making it an ideal venue for seminars of upto 140 people or receptions for upto 200. The suite mails will be used for presentations. The room may be divided into 3 separate rooms if required. This slide shows you the bloomsbury room. It is also ideally suited for seminars and lectures. There is seating for 72 people or it can be used as a reception area for up to a hundred. Next, we have two rooms that are very similar. Indeed, we have given them virtually identical names. We call them Holborn one and Holborn two. They are both suitable for small meetings, training classes and presentations. Holborn one is slightly larger capable of hosting 20 to 22 people whilst Holborn two holds a maximum of 18 people. The Oxford sweet measures 12 by 6 meters and provides a more spacious and luxurious environment for executive meetings and presentations. As you can see it is particularly elegant and well-furnished.

The construction education center also has an exhibition area which is used by many clients when they hold a conference or meeting. This can be used as a way of informing delegates of your company or as a visual launch pad for your company or its products and services. Recently, we held an exhibition entitled sustainable London from friday night of March until Saturday the 28th of April. Here are a few slides showing that exhibition.The sustainable London exhibition presented the challenge, the response and progress towards a sustainable 21st century city. The exhibition featured over 60 different schemes from private houses to master plans and showed how local government architects and engineers are employing technology to reduce environmental impact and address climate change. Here, we can see an example of a display of environmentally friendly technology by some of the leading brands in the field. I would also like to show you a few slides showing our educational activities. Here, you can see our vocational students assessing construction plans. We currently have about a hundred and twenty students here at the CC and we hope to increase that number to 150 over the next two years. We provide a wide range of essential training for the people who will hold key positions in the construction industry of tomorrow. In this slide, you can see students at work on designing an environmentally friendly home. Their designs are later reviewed by experienced professionals and have led to changes in the way that such homes are designed. Finally, I’d like you to draw your attention to this slide showing the location of the construction education center. As you can see it is located in the heart of London’s east end on story lane of Court street. Limited metered parking is available outside the CC but there’s a car park nearby at Russel street. The nearest underground stations are court ride and Russell square. The center is also within walking distance from Queen’s cross train station.
