Builders in the North West of England are being invited to meet building surveyors from the National Trust at its offices in Altrincham to learn about winning work on some of the charity’s famous historic sites.
The free event on Thursday 3 July is hosted by Constructionline, the Government-owned database of contractors, and will allow local businesses to find out about a number of wide-ranging projects, as part of National Trust’s conservation and building programme.
Planned work involves extensions, repairs and refurbishments at historic estates in Cheshire, including Dunham Massey and Quarry Bank, as well as areas of the Lake District. The scope of opportunities includes roofing, scaffolding, utilities and timber and masonry repairs.
“As a national charity we look after a large number of listed and historic buildings across the UK, and are responsible for their upkeep,” said Phyllis Bayley, lead building surveyor at the National Trust.
“Local contractors have a vested interest in their own communities, including National Trust sites on their doorstep. This event will allow us to engage with skilled SME contractors in the region.”
The event is free and registration is advised to avoid disappointment. For more information or to register interest, go to www.constructionline.co.uk/events.
