BUILD Ayrshire, an eight week programme designed to guide local construction-related businesses on winning new work from Scotland’s Tier 1 building contractors, is holding an online information event on Thursday 14 January between 10.00 and 12.00.
Held in association with North, East and South Ayrshire Councils, Build Ayrshire is conducted by hub south West. The online programme contains shared learning for all delegates on business in general, including strategy, goal setting, leadership, team building and development, marketing and promotion, procurement, cost control, cyber security, and Corporate Social Responsibility.
The programme will feature eight Thursday sessions from 9.15 until 13.30 between 4 February and 25 March. The initiative also includes supply chain meetings with several of hub South West’s Tier 1 Contractors and an opportunity to pitch to all of them followed up by short meetings.
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.
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.
“Anyone wishing to participate in this exciting and proven online programme should register to attend our Information Day on 14 January by using the link: https://www.hubsouthwestscotland.co.uk/event/event/229-new-build-ayrshire-virtual-information-day.
“All construction industry-related businesses in Ayrshire that want to succeed will be most welcome.”
