CONSTRUCTION & DEVELOPMENT MEMBERS

As well as networking opportunities, important roundtable discussions, and the ability to get their voices heard at a regional level, we support our members in the Construction and Development sector by advocating strongly for more in-region procurement by the region's anchor institutions.  Procurement is one of our six impact areas, because we believe major spending in South West Wales should stay in South West Wales - so that small, medium and larger businesses in the regional supply chain can create jobs, grow and support their communities.  We also host events and conversations about development, property, sustainable development, and we host the Development & Investment Zone at the annual city centre conference in Swansea.
