In November, we gathered key leaders from across the construction industry to discuss a particularly hot topic – the Northern Powerhouse.
In case you missed our last post, we’ve begun hosting roundtable events in support of the construction industry, its supporting services and suppliers. We’ve found it a great way to connect and share valuable insight and knowledge regarding the issues the industry faces, as well as the opportunities available. With eight different companies represented at our last event, we had an interesting and engaging discussion regarding the concept of the Northern Powerhouse. The full whitepaper from the event is available to download here: Northern-Powerhouse-Whitepaper
Is the Northern Powerhouse a springboard for a smarter industry?
The Northern Powerhouse presents a number of unique challenges, but there is also great potential for bigger and better output and an increase in investment if we can take advantage of it and see northern cities work together. The North boasts several pockets of excellence across a number of industries and it is in our interest to back these. Meeting together at MediaCityUK gave testament to this.
Our discussion highlighted the need for the right infrastructure and lines of communication to be in place as a matter of priority. There was also talk about the skills gap and whether the Northern Powerhouse could provide any kind of solution to this.
