A FREE EVENT aimed at unlocking the potential in Dundee’s construction sector is set to be held next week.

Industry experts and local construction businesses will hook-up for the morning-long session at the Steeple Church on Tuesday (February 11).

Dundee City Council is one of the event’s co-host and Alan Ross convener of the city development committee said: “With the amount of building work already underway, plus the number of planning applications that have been approved recently and many still in the pipeline, the sector has a lot to be a positive about.

“But we could still be doing more to help local building firms capitalise on the great opportunities that are available and will be coming on stream in the weeks and months ahead.”

Alison Henderson CEO of Dundee and Angus Chamber of Commerce, who are the other co-hosts added: “The event will set out the national context of the construction sector before focussing in on the people and skills we have, and also need to develop to get the best possible benefits for the city’s economy.

“There will also be a session aimed at how we can all play a part in unlocking the potential in this already vibrant and exciting industry.”

Among speakers at the event will be Robin Blacklock of the Scottish Property Federation; Michael Lennox, CITB; Allan Rae, Kirkwood Homes and Kevin Murphy of Dundee and Angus College.

More than 85 places for the free event have already been snapped up and more information can be found at
