An innovative new collaborative project launched by City College Brighton and Hove, Brighton & Hove City Council and the European Regional Development Fund will allow local companies in the construction industry to benefit from free coaching sessions in sustainable construction, renewable energy and eco-build techniques.
The project will be providing workshops, talks and business development sessions at locations all over Brighton & Hove.
Nicola Sankey, City College’s Build Green Project Co-ordinator, said
“Sustainability has become increasingly important in the construction industry in recent years,”
“The purpose of Build Green is to help local companies improve their green credentials in ways that’ll help them to break into new markets, bid for public sector contracts and also access the funding that’s available for modern sustainable building projects. What’s good for the environment can also be very good for business.
Build Green has also got the support of construction firm Willmott Dixon, winners of this year’s Queen's Award for Enterprise for sustainable development. Simon Traner, Willmott Dixon’s Senior Sustainability Manager, said:
"Willmott Dixon believes that a sustainable business is one that knows how to support its supply chain. We achieve this by using local businesses whenever possible, which supports the local pound and sustains jobs. Supporting local companies is good business sense for us and fits our goal to leave a legacy within the communities where we operate. This key focus is why we’re keen to support the Build Green project.”
