Opportunity for Staffordshire trades

4 Jun 13 Housing Plus and its subcontractor Property Care are looking for construction suppliers in the Midlands.

They are holding a meet-the-buyer event on Tuesday 18 June 2013 in Stafford.

Housing Plus looks after more than 6,000 homes. It is looking for subcontractors and tradespeople based within 45 miles of Stafford and the South Staffordshire borders to help with responsive maintenance and planned improvements to affordable housing in the local area.

The work will cover aids and adaptations, asbestos testing, asbestos removal, electrical works, groundworks, fencing, bricklaying, joinery, pest control, CCTV, aerials, lightening protection, multi-skilled trades, painting, plastering, plumbing, roofing, scaffolding, smoke and fire detection, stair lifts, and water treatments, and other compliance works. Work will be delivered using NHF schedules.

The event is being organised by Constructionline, the construction prequalification organisation. Business development manager Claire Makin said: β€œIn our experience, it can be hard for suppliers to get opportunities to work with buyers, especially on projects of this size within their local community. For this reason, it is great to see Housing Plus sourcing local subcontractors to help deliver this project. Hosting events like this is one of the many added-value benefits we provide for our suppliers – we want to help them find and secure work and also make it easier for businesses to find reliable and local construction companies.”

The event is free but registration is advised to avoid disappointment. Email claire.makin@capita.co.uk for more information.
