The Civil Engineering Contractors Association (Southern) Ltd covers the southern half of England, including London, and as far north as Gloucestershire, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk. Our regional members range in size from the largest contractors to SMEs and relatively fledgling companies. Common to all is their involvement in the delivery and maintenance of the UK’s infrastructure.
As well as supporting training and apprenticeships, and engaging with Government departments, we arrange client liaison meetings, which allows client bodies to outline their strategic plans, in terms of procurement, spend profile, etc, whilst collectively feeding back member issues and concerns.
We also work in partnership with like-minded organisations, such as professional institutions and trade federations to further the interests of those working in the infrastructure sector.
2018 will be a year of transition for CECA (Southern). A change of Executive Director and the introduction of an Annual Lunch to replace the traditional dinner event are just part of this transition; a natural progression to manage the ever-changing environment that we operate within. We will continue to support members of all sizes, providing unique access to clients, LEPs, local government and fellow members. We will also ensure that Southern members have the opportunity to influence CECA’s national stance on a number of key issues including:
- fair payment
- efficient procurement practices
- better supplier engagement
- roll-out of the revised CITB process
- skills improvement and recruitment of key resources
- behavioural and cultural developments
We are proud of the work our members do and work every day to promote their achievements, to promote the exciting opportunities in our sector and to persuade decision makers to invest in infrastructure.
CECA (Southern) Ltd governs both CECA (Southern) and CECA (South West). The Directors for CECA (Southern) Ltd are listed below and Andy Pritchard is the representative for the South West.
