EDP & South England Joint Forum

South & EDP Region held their first conference on 12 July at the Royal Academy of Engineering where over 50 individuals from in-scope companies came together to hear and participate in workshops and presentations based on the six strategic themes for ECITB. The event was a huge success with many tier 1 and tier 2 contractors sharing their views and networking and forging ongoing business contacts. A number of the key training providers within the South were also on hand to talk to companies and answer any questions from in-scope companies.

The plans are now in place for next years’ event!

ACTIVE Cup Competition – January 2017

Cup competition took place at Cranfield School of Management from Friday 20 – Sunday 22 January

11 teams including the first ever client team from GSK battled head to head to deliver a simulated construction project with the aim of making the most profit. The simulation purposefully puts teams and individuals under pressure to test their skills and processes. With every team planning to make a profit on day 1, the competition saw only 2 teams making profit at completion. 

The winning team was Saipem, with ODE and Technip E&C taking the subsequent gold and silver awards. The WSP | Parsons Brinkerhoff team were awarded the most improved team prize.

The winners picture and overall completion photos are attached.
