Huge turnout to Meet the City Buyers

Building Plymouth hosted an opportunity for the local construction industry and the city’s public sector clients to meet and network together at the University of Plymouth on 6 June.

During the event, the city’s key clients including Babcock, University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust, Plymouth City Council, University of Plymouth and Plymouth Community Homes shared the latest news about their capital programmes leading up to 2030.

Emma Hewitt, Skills Lead and Building Plymouth Lead said: “Today is about us creating a positive engagement opportunity between the city’s public sector clients and the local construction community. A chance to hear about the bigger picture, get informed about the market opportunities ahead, understand latest procurement strategies and client priorities for social value. We are working hard together to improve transparency of the capital programme and to create an informative networking opportunity to better connect clients with the local marketplace. The feedback has been fantastic from industry and the clients alike so this is an exciting time to be working together.”

With thanks to First Thursday Club for sponsoring the refreshments and to the University of Plymouth for hosting the event in-kind.
