Event description
Developing a one voice strategy for the North East England construction sector, to secure support and funding for a sustainable industry.

About this Event

The Construction Industry Council NE (CIC NE), Constructing Excellence in the North East (CENE) and Construction Alliance Northeast (CAN) are overseeing the development of a regional strategy to demonstrate how the construction industry can;

  • work within the overarching strategies of the region,
  • assist in attaining the aspirations of the two north east Local Enterprise Partnerships (North East LEP and Tees Valley LEP),
  • create a sustainable future for people, place and environment and
  • maximise regional skills and potential.

We are holding two consultation events, one for the north of the region in Newcastle and one for the south of the region in Tees Valley, to provide the opportunity for the industry and its stakeholders to contribute towards the developing strategy. No matter where your interest lies, we need your voice to be heard to ensure the final North East England Construction Industry Strategy delivers for the industry and the region.

North East England Construction Industry Strategy

The overarching theme of the strategy is a belief there must be a reduction in wastage of time, resource, materials and money throughout the construction process. The main outcomes we are looking for are;

  • a single point of contact for the industry, speaking with One Voice
  • an updated regional response to the issues raised by the Modernise or Die report
  • greater links with educational establishments to promote the North East England construction industry
  • ensure a combined sector response to diversity issues and greater inclusion
  • strengthen the construction industry to support the regional LEPs in their move to inspiring our future with more and better jobs through developing skills growth
  • a clear idea of what the NEE construction industry demands and requires
  • respond to the Construction Sector Deal and assist the region in becoming a national lead in Procuring for Value
  • develop a skills roadmap for anyone wanting to enter the regional industry, working with CITB GoConstruct
  • work with other industries in understanding youth drivers and developing an appropriate work ethos for the future
