Caption: The Sellafield site in West Cumbria
The Swimming with the Big Fish SME Matchmaker Service has been making waves in the construction media.
The Construction Enquirer picked up on the launch of the Programme and Project Partners’ combined concrete structures, groundworks and blockwork package at the Sellafield site in West Cumbria – worth a staggering £1bn over 18 years.
So too did Building and Construction News.
The package (known as KDP8) is by far the biggest to be released under PPP’s pioneering Multi Project Procurement commercial model – a fresh approach to delivering work on the Sellafield site that aims to drive cost savings, certainty of delivery and rewards supply chains that achieve stipulated project outcomes. Huge emphasis is also placed on local employment, upskilling the local workforce, along with financial and social investment in Cumbria.
Our Swimming with the Big Fish SME Matchmaker Service will again be supporting PPP and those aiming to be Key Delivery Partners (KDP) for this latest package. Our role is to broker introductions and develop relationships between those bidding for KDP status and high performing SMEs able and willing to invest in the region.
More than 60 SMEs have already gone through the Matchmaker Service process, which has so far supported the Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning, Electrical & Instrumentation Fabrication & Manufacturing, Mechanical Pipework packages. And there’s more to come!
