ENGINEERING SKILLS COMPETITIONS
Inspiring the metalworkers of the future
Register for Construction Metalwork

Construction Metalwork Competition

Steel structures are crucial in all areas of construction, from the buildings themselves to the tower cranes needed to assemble them. You will need to understand how the different types of steel need to be used, and how to cut, join, and weld them both in engineering workshops and on site.

For the construction metalworker, that means being able to understand engineering drawings and then building the actual structure accurately.

This WorldSkills UK competition focuses on all the essential requirements for a successful career as a metalwork specialist in the engineering industry. The competition has been designed to reflect the role of an advanced metal fabricator and meet industry standards.
