Developing a one voice strategy for the North East England Construction Sector, to secure support and funding for a sustainable industry.

The Construction Industry accounts for 8.5% of all jobs in the North East, with a projected construction spend of over £3 billion per year for the next five years. Our industry is seen as an international leader in digital services, construction development and building information modelling (BIM) and it’s envisaged that 4,200 new construction jobs will be created in the North East by 2022.

But if we want a vibrant, dynamic and sustainable construction sector that will play a part in the development, growth and economic success of the future of North East England, then we must focus on skills, building a sustainable industry, productivity and innovation.

Come along to the consultation event and tell us what’s going on in the industry and what you think we need to do to make a difference.
