Local People, Local Issues – FBE’s Telford event

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Local People, Local Issues – FBE’s Telford eventThe Black Country and Telford branch of Forum for the Built Environment (fbe) recently hosted a networking breakfast for local property and construction professionals at the Telford campus of the University of Wolverhampton.

The event included delegates from every sector of the construction industry, from consultants to developers, and was judged a huge success. As the fastest growing town in the Midlands, there was plenty of positive construction and property news about Telford.  This included news of phase 1 of the Southwater development opening in May 2014, the 80% extension of the Telford Shopping Centre, the schools redevelopment project under the BSF programme and proposals for an extra 1 million sq. ft. of warehousing for a Defence Logistics Gateway.

Telford local Haydn Cook from Bauder spoke about Green Roofs, providing a fascinating insight into their design process.  Simon Thompson from Seddon Construction championed their use of apprentices, and community CSR projects, illustrating that there are substantial business benefits to be gained as well as the opportunity to help our community.

The event was supported by representatives from The University of Wolverhampton Careers Centre, who highlighted their student and graduate placement schemes, and the support offered to local employers.

Chris Goulson of the Telford and Wrekin Council answered questions about upcoming local projects, and explained the free help and advice available for those submitting a planning application.

Jonathan Astley, chairman of the fbe committee for the Black Country and Telford branch said, “The over-riding atmosphere was of inclusion, there was something for everyone. Our networking events are growing in popularity because of the in-depth focus on local issues that we offer. They are fast becoming a ‘must attend’ event for all professionals involved in the built environment.”
