Meet the Buyer event – Better Barnsley – 20/05/16

Better BarnsleyNational Federation Of BuildersMeet the Buyer event, Better Barnsley

Henry Boot Construction and the National Federation of Builders (NFB) met up with the Better Barnsley team to host their latest ‘Meet the Buyer’ event at the impressive Barnsley Town Hall.  The event proved to be a great success.

The aim of the event was to expand and improve on our current sub-contract supply chain, particularly in the Barnsley region in readiness for the commencement of Phase 1 of the Better Barnsley town centre project.  Over 100 people registered to attend the breakfast event from a wide range of disciplines. 

A short presentation explaining the project was given together with an introduction to Henry Boot Construction by Simon Carr, Managing Director after which the room was open for suppliers to discuss working with Henry Boot Construction with a number of Henry Boot Construction staff along with members of the Better Barnsley team.

Guided tours of the areas for redevelopment will be offered at a later date for interested local suppliers and sub-contractors to understand more about the scheme.

“I was thrilled to see such a good turnout for the event with well over 100 attendees, some familiar faces but some new to us.  Many of the new contacts made will be very useful for the Better Barnsley scheme and our portfolio of projects across the region.”
