Infrastructure 21: Supporting and strengthening the infrastructure supply chain

Passionate about improving health and safety in the construction industry? Want to change the way we train? Want to see more innovation? Infrastructure 21 is here to make a difference.

New Civil Engineer and the Civil Engineering Contractors Association have been working with contractors from across the infrastructure sector to develop a training programme designed to upskill the supply chain and enable it to deliver the anticipated boom in workload.

The programme will be supported and championed by an annual supplier recognition event, which will highlight and reward the individuals or firms in the supply chain who are showing early leadership in six core competencies.

These competencies will be introduced by six key clients, who will, in turn, outline why each competency is such a critical issue for the industry to address and offer up their perspective of what good performance looks like.

Infrastructure 21 will be an invitation-only breakfast event, targeted at chief executives, directors and up-and-coming young professionals from across the industry.

The event will:

  • Reveal the capabilities required of the supply chain to service a 21st century infrastructure sector
  • Offer a platform for six leading industry clients to recognise six supply chain companies who are providing early leadership by embracing the key capabilities and making progress towards demonstrating excellence in them.

The aspiration is for the event to become recognised annually as the leading benchmark of business performance improvement in the civil engineering delivery sector.
