Associated Document: n/a

Venue:Sandy Park Conference Centre, Exeter


This is a chance to engage with suppliers as part of the Infrastructure Leadership Programme, which is developing proposals to support companies in delivering major upgrades to the UK's infrastructure in the coming years.  The Conference will include presentations from significant regional and national customers about their future work programmes, as well as opportunities to engage with contractors with specific supply chain requirements.  There will also be an opportunity to debate how we can encourage more young people into our industry with an innovative group of contractors and their local further education college demonstrating one approach which will achieve exactly that.  Customer presentations are likely to include:

  • Devon County Council/Skanska - opportunities for the supply chain under the County's new highways strategic management contract
  • EDF Energy, Nuclear New Build, Hinkley Point C - procurement opportunities on the UK's biggest construction project
  • Babcock International - strategic nuclear infrastructure development at Devonport Dockyard (this presentation is subject to MoD agreement)
  • Groundworks & Civil Engineering Employers' Group/Fareham College - demonstrating an impressive initiative driven by local contractors on the South Coast to develop the local skills capacity for civil engineering through an effective local apprenticeship programme.
