VBA is set to host a supplier engagement day on 28th November at Mytholmroyd Community Centre. The event is designed to give contractors and the community the chance to meet face-to-face with representatives of the VBA group to discuss upcoming work for a flood defence scheme in West Yorkshire. Local businesses and the community are also welcome to attend.
The £20m project follows a detailed investigation carried out by the Environment Agency and is aimed at preventing a repeat of the devastating floods that struck the Mytholmroyd area in 2015, causing damage to houses and businesses. Hosted in partnership with leading procurement provider Constructionline, the event is being held to discuss opportunities to secure work on the scheme with local construction material suppliers and subcontractors. Hoteliers and accommodation providers are also encouraged to attend.
A joint venture comprising VolkerStevin, Boskalis Westminster and Atkins, VBA provides specialist services in designing and constructing sustainable flood and coastal defences. Its supplier engagement day will include presentations, opportunities to speak directly with its procurement team and a recruitment stand for apprentices.
Work for the scheme is expected to include improvements to flood walls, the relocation of the Caldene Bridge, widening of the river channel at key locations and the strengthening and waterproofing of buildings next to the river.
“We look forward to welcoming a wide range of contractors to the event on the 28th November,” said Jamie Dalgleish from VBA. “A significant amount of work is up for grabs across a wide range of trade categories. From masonry, drainage installation and soft landscaping to fencing, rendering and tree surgery, there’s a large variety of opportunities to work on this vital flood scheme for the village.”
The event will take place from 10:00 am to 19:00 pm on Tuesday 28th November at Mytholmroyd Community Centre. Tickets are free. To register your attendance please click here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/vba-supplier-engagement-day-tickets-39722615412
