EDF set to speak about Hinkley Point C at South West Construction Summit

David_SuttonWith Construction News revealing this week that work at Hinkley Point C will boost the South West construction market by £500m over the next two years, we are delighted to announce that David Sutton, Delivery Director at EDF, will be discussing the economic value of Hinkley Point C at the South West Construction Summit on the 09 June at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol.

The Somerset site will help the South West to become the UK’s fastest-growing region in terms of construction activity in 2018, with output set to grow by 2 per cent in 2017 and 1.3 per cent in 2018, according to forecasts. Hewes & Associates predicts that work at Hinkley will add between £400m and £500m to industry activity in the region during 2017 and 2018.

The predictions indicate that the South West will make up 7.4 per cent of the UK’s total construction output by 2018 – up from 6.9 per cent in 2016 and therefore the South West Construction Summit is your opportunity to hear from a representative of EDF who is directly involved with the Hinkley Point C project and the Q&A session will provide answers to your questions about the development.

The South West Construction Summit will explore ways to address the obstacles that potentially impact the future success of the UK construction industry, whilst focusing on three intrinsically linked key themes: Skills and Image, Productivity and Sustainability – delivered by 12 leading construction exponents in the region.

The Summit will highlight how the industry can approach and resolve these pressing issues through the experience and learnings from the prominent speaker line-up.
