Big Door talks Architecture

As part of a series of short documentary style films Big Door are currently planning  “ Building Britain”.

Featuring Architecture; Engineering; Surveying; Planning; Design and Build. Telling the story of how buildings are actually created from the ground up.

We live in buildings; we work in buildings; we spend much of our leisure time in buildings. In the film we will explore the most interesting structures being created in Britain and the world today, focusing on the many and varied jobs that go into creating the building, including the working people who inhabit the finished structures. Who are the people behind the jobs that help to deliver these exciting projects?

A Focus on Architecture

Currently, Architecture contributes £4.8 billion to the UK economy,  with RIBA’s Global Talent and Global Reach report revealing that the “UK’s position as a global architectural hub, is attracting the very best talent from across the EU and earning more from exports than any other EU nation” (, 2017).  Big Door is seeking dynamic companies in the Architecture Industry who are willing to share their story with young people in education today who will be building the Britain of tomorrow.

Across the world we are conscious that young consumers in the digital age receive their information through visual content and often prefer to watch rather than read; the idea of a very visual-based career platform is the thinking behind the format of the Big Door launch.

There are over three and a half million young people in secondary education in the UK today and they will be contributing to the economic and social development of the future. Help us help them build a better future for everyone.

We are seeking partners and young professionals working in Architecture to join us in delivering this exciting and informative film and invite you to share your story with the Big Door project.

Come and talk on film or support this important initiative to reach young people in education today who will become the next generation of constructors.
