Wates Construction is looking for suppliers to help with its £85m contract to build the Ministry of Justice’s new Secure College in Leicester.
Wates is hosting a Meet the Buyer event next week to give local small to medium enterprises tendering opportunities to become part of the project supply chain.
The event, which will be held at the Hilton Leicester Hotel and will be supported by Blaby District Council, will take place on Thursday 4 September between 8am and 4pm.
Those interested in attending are asked to register their details beforehand at email@example.com
Project representatives from Wates will be on hand to discuss the new development and give details on how suppliers and subcontractors can become part of the contractor’s local supply chain.
Phil Harrison, Managing Director, Wates Construction Midlands and North, said: “Procuring a local supply chain has a deep-seated effect on boosting and sustaining local employment and it is for this reason that all of our projects are delivered in collaboration with nearby suppliers and subcontractors.
”We have an established supply chain in the East Midlands that we are now looking to expand upon and we welcome those interested to attend our Meet the Buyer event in Blaby.”
Work on the new Secure College is expected to begin next year, with completion scheduled for 2017.
