Commercial People has learned that hub South West is set to host an online Information Day later this week for the first-ever Build Ayrshire programme.
Following on from the success of last years Build Lanarkshire event, Build Ayshire is an eight week’s long programme in association with North, East and South Ayrshire Councils that will offer practical instruction to guide local construction industry-related businesses on winning new, high-value work from Scotland’s Tier 1 building contractors.
Mark Houston, Supply Chain Development Manager at hub South West, said: “This, the first Build Ayrshire Programme, follows on from eleven of our Building for Growth and three Build Lanarkshire programmes which we have run over the last six years.
“Over 130 companies have now ‘graduated’ from these programmes, many of which have improved their business and experienced high growth by both broadening and deepening their grasp of the factors needed to win more new, bigger contracts from the Tier One contractors.”
The eight-week-long event will comprise of eight sessions between February 4th and March 25th, with the first workshop focusing on Your Business, Past, Present and Future.
The Build Ayrshire programme also includes supply chain meetings with several of hub South West’s active Tier 1 Contractors and concludes with an opportunity to pitch to all of them followed up by short meetings with each Tier 1 participant.
As part of the final event, one business will win the Main Award for the programme as decided by a panel of Tier 1 Contractor judges chaired by hub South West’s Chief Executive, Michael McBrearty.
The online Information Day for the event will be held this week Thursday between 10.00 am and 12.00 pm. Interested businesses can click here to learn more.
