Local subcontractors from around Cumbria are being invited to meet with procurement decision makers from Sir Robert McAlpine to find out about its latest project, valued at £25m

The scheme will see the construction of a 78,716 sq ft paint facility in Barrow-in-Furness, due to start in November 2015. To support the work, the firm is looking to recruit local supply chain partners including joiners, plumbers, decorators, metal workers and flooring specialists.


Constructionline, a UK procurement and supply chain management service, will be hosting the Supplier Engagement Day on 15 June, at the Abbey House Hotel in Barrow-in-Furness. The event will see procurement decision makers at Sir Robert McAlpine meet with local businesses to provide them with details on how they can secure work on the project and the selection criteria needed to qualify.

Aaron Good, client relationship manager at Constructionline, said: “This is a great opportunity for subcontractors in Cumbria to win work on such a large project, right on their doorstep.

“These events have been designed to help buyers that are looking to cost-effectively source local suppliers and at the same time equip small businesses with a knowledge of what is required of them before they begin submitting tender information.”

Angus Stockwell, chief buyer for NE and Scotland at Sir Robert McAlpine, added: “We’re keen to enhance our regional supply chain in Cumbria to complete this project. Our procurement staff will be on hand to talk businesses through our criteria and answer any questions on how best to apply. We’re looking forward to engaging with local sub-contractors and service providers and discussing how we can best work together.”

The event will run from 10am until 2pm and suppliers do not have to be a Constructionline member to attend. For more information or to register interest, go to:
