Promoting Shropshire construction excellence

An event to drive improved sustainability across Shropshire’s construction industry is to be held at Telford College later this month.

Shropshire Constructing Excellence (SCE), the county’s leading business network for companies operating in the built environment, will host a Waste and Resource Efficiency seminar on March 17.

Sponsored by Alumasc Exteriors, it is aimed at supporting businesses to be more sustainable, address environmental issues and improve efficiency.

Those attending will be able to listen to Paul Shipton, consultant director for Smithers Rapra, who will give a talk on innovation and sustainability in construction.

He said: “The construction industry is facing a world of change, opportunity and challenges and as a big user of natural resources, the industry has a huge opportunity to reduce its impact on the environment.

“The key to success will be how to deal with these challenges and my talk will focus on key trends and initiatives within the construction industry for addressing sustainability and environmental issues.”

During the event, Professor Julieanna Powell-Turner from CREST at University Centre Shrewsbury will talk about resource efficiency in construction, and there will be a presentation on circular economies.

Representatives from the Marches Construction Ready Partnership will also give an insight into its work, as well as hosting a site visit to its construction training centre in Hadley.

Paul Moran, chairman of SCE, said: “We are excited to be putting on another flagship event to support businesses across Shropshire.

“We are committed to improving sustainability across the sector now, and in the future, and this event will be key for sharing ideas and knowledge on how we can move forward collectively within the industry.”

The free-to-attend event starts at 9am with networking, and finishes at noon.
