Why are you supporting Building Plymouth?
“We are proud to be sponsoring Building Plymouth. Following a large uplift in construction and demolition projects across the South West region, there has been an intrinsic need to address the skills shortage within the industry. We face a monolithic task of filling the skills gap, but with the support from industry leaders to the Building Plymouth partnership, we take that crucial step towards successful delivery of our modern infrastructure. Our forward plan within the Group is to support individuals seeking a structured pathway into the industry.
“Our immediate goal is to provide a robust delivery model for training and development, providing young apprentices and graduates a compartmentalised education process, balancing theory with practical training. The Building Plymouth model is an exceptional tool, indispensable to the success of closing the skills gap within our region. The Gilpin Group view Building Plymouth as an integral part of our project delivery. We will endeavour to further strengthen our relationship with Building Plymouth and communities across the region, to further support individuals into employment. The South West’s built environment holds exciting prospects for the future, and here at Gilpin we see this as a positive step forward to developing an already booming industry.”
