Building business at construction network event

Business | Press | News

Businesses in Peterborough involved in the construction industry were recently given a new opportunity to build their businesses.

Opportunity Peterborough

Peterborough Chamber of Commerce has set up a new group - the Peterborough Construction Network - to help local construction companies build business relationships.

Opportunity Peterborough, the organisation responsible for leading the future development of the city, sponsored the group's first meeting. It also provided the main speaker at the launch event - its chief executive, Jody Tableporter.

She said: "I am honoured to be the first speaker at the first meeting of this new group. The group can play an important role by providing an opportunity for everyone in this industry to get together.

"Peterborough is moving from having a reactive stance to having a strategic view of its future development. We are thinking about how the city should be positioned and the way we should be developing.

"Opportunity Peterborough is leading a 1 billion transformation of the city, with massive investment in new building and construction projects.

"We think it is important to get our local construction companies involved at an early stage. This is why I am delighted to have this opportunity to talk about our plans for the future development of Peterborough. The more that local companies know about what is happening, the better position they will be in to win contracts when we move into the design and construction phases."

Phil Elmer, chairman of the Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce Construction Sector, said: "The aim of the Peterborough Construction Network is to bring together all professions associated with the development and construction industries in the county and region.

"This forum allows these businesses to meet on an informal basis to discuss issues related to their industry."
