Workshop and £125m Dumfries and Galloway construction programme update

Tue 23rd Sep 2014 10:00am to 1:00pm

On behalf of hub South West’s Tier 1 contractors, I would like to invite up to 12 local contractors and suppliers (max 2 per company) to an event at Ashleigh, Heathhall on the 23rd September, 10am-1pm. The event will feature a very practical 1.5 hour workshop on Risk Assessments / Method Statements for working on-site on hub projects.


1.       The latest procurement news from Graham Construction and Ashleigh, contractors for the £25m Dalbeattie High School project

2.       The latest on the £100m Dumfries and Galloway Learning town project which has now been tendered with an appointment due imminently.

3.       An opportunity to become part of ‘Building for Growth’, a free support programme for companies looking to tender for sub-contract work on these and other projects.

4.       A buffet lunch and opportunity for one to one discussion and networking.

Workshop details:

The aim of this workshop is to explain the risk assessment process from a main contractor’s perspective covering:

• What do Principle Contractors need and want

• Simplifying the process - less is more!
• The dos and don'ts.
• Communicating the control measures.
• Evaluating a good and bad Risk Assessment
• Producing a Risk Assessment from scratch in teams
