Regeneration meeting generates great turnout
Back to all news
Birmingham got back to business with a bang at finditinbirmingham’s first breakfast and networking meeting of 2012.
‘Regeneration projects around Birmingham’ was fully booked days before the event and more than 170 local business owners, directors and senior managers came to the Birmingham Hippodrome on Thursday 5 January.
The attendees heard the most up-to-date accounts of 2012’s biggest projects from Birmingham City Council and construction giant Carillion.
Exclusive one-to-one meetings were also arranged for prospective suppliers to meet Carillion representatives and discuss their requirements for the coming year.
Andrew Round, Birmingham City Council’s Head of Development (Planning & Regeneration), offered finditinbirmingham members a first-hand briefing about regeneration projects around the city.
And Simon Dingle, Operations Director for Carillion plc, alongside Birmingham City Council’s Terry Perkins, Head of Project Delivery, explained the contracts opportunities still available from the £188.8 million Library of Birmingham work, which will continue into 2013.
Mr Dingle also outlined the £5 billion company’s supply chain requirements before Paul Dransfield, Strategic Director of Corporate Resources at Birmingham City Council, provided his perspective on future regeneration.
