Nigel Whelan, Area Manager Construction South said: “Morgan Sindall are pleased to announce that they have recently become project sponsors of Building Plymouth, who are continuing their excellent work in getting local people connected with the construction industry, through schools, academies and local training providers. It is imperative that a close working relationship is forged with local sub-contractors to encourage their continued and co-ordinated involvement in local building schemes. We look forward to being a part of what we believe will be an invaluable asset to the construction industry in Plymouth.”

David Bayliss, Divisional Director Project Manager said: “Stride Treglown are delighted to become one of the Sponsors of Building Plymouth so we can work with like-minded organisations to show case and encourage more people to join the Construction Industry. We are passionate about the built environment and we want to help others to show what a rewarding career it can provide across a very wide spectrum or roles within the construction consultancy disciplines.”
