Cheshire West and Chester Council is committed to increasing supply choices and promoting the value of our procurement spend to the local economy and we want to ensure as many opportunities as possible are given to our local suppliers.

 

 

 

If you are a local business providing services to the Construction/Building/FM industry, such as general building, plumbing, electricians and groundwork then Construction Connect 2014 is YOUR chance to meet with Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council’s key Works and Construction partners for major infrastructure projects, general construction projects, Facilities Management and Housing Management/House Builder partners.

 

 

 

Through this ‘Meet the Buyer’ event the Council hopes to engage with our local supplier base and make the procurement process more transparent for small and medium sized organisations.

 

 

 

The two key construction projects the Council will be exhibiting at this event are the new Chester Theatre and the Barons Quay Development in Northwich. This event will be supported and attended by the Main Contractors for these projects, who are Kier North West for the Theatre project, and the Barons Quay Contractor, who will be announced by the end of July.
