Construction Frameworks Conference set to connect major operations, professional and bidders together

On the 24th May, prominent public and private sector leaders within the construction and property industry will come together at the Construction Frameworks Conference – the sector’s largest conference of the year.

The conference, hosted by Built Environment Networking, will see some of the industry’s biggest names from both the public and private sector lead a discussion on frameworks to help delegates achieve best value from their procurement, demonstrate best practice in developing and operating frameworks, and allow for the sector to meet and collaborate. Speakers at the conference include:

  • Professor Sue Arrowsmith; Achilles Professor of Public Procurement Law & Policy at The University of Nottingham
  • Mark Chadwick; Director of Business Services at Fusion21
  • Professor David Mosey; Director at Centre of Construction Law
  • Ann Bentley; Lead on Supply Chain & Business Models at the Construction Leadership Council

The day-long conference will bring together major public-sector framework operators, public and private sector procurement professionals, framework professionals and potential bidders for those frameworks – with best practice presentations, panel discussions and workshops part of the conference.

Keith Griffiths, MD of Built Environment Networking said: ‘’Our conferences have a history of bringing together the top business and civic leaders who have the power and influence to make a change – with our most recent Economic Growth Conferences in Cambridge, Leeds and Bristol an example of that. Frameworks is a major part of the construction sector with over 7,000 operational in the UK, with billions of pounds of work and consultancy fees let through them each year. This conference will give businesses the opportunity to connect and collaborate with those in the sector, whilst discovering new ways to achieve best value, reduce costs, achieve best practice and ultimately win new clients.’’

Mark Chadwick, Director of Business Services, Fusion21, said: “The Construction Frameworks Conference is an important date in the industries calendar providing a space where best practice for construction frameworks can be showcased, discussed and debated. The conference also provides public sector bodies from a range of sectors across the country the opportunity for valuable face time with framework operators, to have their questions answered and to find out how they could achieve maximum social value, efficiency and quality for every pound spent. With the overall aim of achieving the best results for local communities.”
