Building Plymouth launches new local Expertise Directory

Plymouth’s construction and built environment expertise is showcased together for the first time in Building Plymouth’s new go-to directory which highlights the city’s talented design, engineering and build capabilities.

The construction industry plays a key role in all our lives

As a key enabler, the construction industry affects everyone, influencing productivity and well-being, creating the homes, hospitals, schools, workplaces and infrastructure essential for a good quality of life.
While the influence of construction ranges well beyond its economic impact, its contribution to our economy is substantial. Building Plymouth recognises that the construction sector will be crucial in delivering the Government’s ambitious build programme as well as developing ‘new ways of working’.

The construction industry’s role in helping Plymouth’s economic recovery and growth

Through accelerating Plymouth’s significant capital programme, construction will underpin both economic recovery and growth for key sectors
including defence, health, education, transport, infrastructure, commercial housing and regeneration. Collectively employing an 8000+ strong workforce, Plymouth has a well established, mature and capable construction community with a breadth of expertise which makes this a very adaptable and responsive local marketplace.

Building Plymouth’s directory of construction industry expertise

Our Building Plymouth Expertise Directory demonstrates the strength of our local capability across design, engineering and build. We welcome the city’s renewed focus on ‘buy local’ and believe that as a well-connected construction community we are in a very strong position to positively engage with clients and deliver projects across all sectors, whilst also maximising social value including skills and employment for the wider city economy.

This new expertise directory is a response by the local construction industry to support Resurgam, Plymouth’s Covid-19 Economic Recovery Plan
