South West Construction Summit – Promoting Prosperous Growth and a Promising Future

Constructing Excellence

The South West has a thriving construction industry with the region predicted to exceed the projected average UK growth rate for 2015 to 2019. The estimated regional average output over this period is 3.6%, considerably higher than the UK predicted rate of 2.9%.

It is this prosperous growth and promising future that has prompted the South West Construction Summit.  The Summit aims to bring together key contributors of the regional construction industry and its supply chain to support and underpin the progress already being made. The event will explore opportunities, major projects, client commitments and procurement best practice, including; deriving value, fair payments, retrofit and soft landings.

Taking place on the 20 May 2016, at the Marriott City Centre Hotel, Bristol – this conference and exhibition is presented by Constructing Excellence South West – the single organisation tasked with driving the change agenda in construction within the region that forms part of the Constructing Excellence Regional Network (CERN).

The South West Construction Summit will guide the built environment sector, defining their route map for gaining strategic opportunities in a lively and structured way, with direct input from industry leaders.

  • David Sutton, EDF Energy
  • Chris Stevens, Bouygues UK
  • Deborah Rowland, Ministry of Justice
  • Ian Knight, Homes and Communities Agency
  • Shane Paull, McCarthy & Stone
  • John Rich, SRA Architects
  • Andrew Covell, Faithful + Gould

The Summit will be chaired by Andrew Carpenter – CEO of Constructing Excellence South West – who will capture and feedback issues that arise on the day. A panel of industry leaders who operate across key construction disciplines will contribute views and opinions as well as the assembled audience of over 250 delegates.

It is set to be a busy day for the South West construction sector as the summit will be swiftly followed that evening by the South West Built Environment Awards 2016 at the same venue.
