RICS Construction Journal provides insights from experts across key industry issues within the built environment, construction, property and land surveying sectors. And the journal was eager to feature the SME Matchmaker Service after hearing about the ground-breaking work through industry circles.
The SME Matchmaker Service has already hit the headlines in publications including Construction Enquirer, Project Control Professional magazine – the official publication of the Association of Cost Engineers (ACostE) – and local business magazine in-Cumbria.
And the positive headlines are set to continue over the next 12 months. Working with PPP and its selected Key Delivery Partners, the SME Matchmaker Service will support the award of up to 40 long-term SME frameworks, which will hold the tantalising prospect of significant job creation, apprentice recruitment, investment in offices and facilities and a whole host of social impact activities designed to make a real difference for local people.
We’re proud to be playing a part in achieving PPP’s shared ambition to create a clean and safe environment at the Sellafield site for future generations, improve sustainability and deliver better outcomes for the local economy and communities.
