York Community Stadium, who are joining us at our 2015 edition of the Design & Development Summit, have offered the chance to win work on the community stadium build.

Construction businesses in York that are interested in supplying products and services required for the building of the York Community Stadium and Leisure Complex scheme are being invited to attend a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event.

City of York Council, in partnership with ISG, is hosting the event on Monday, June 1, at the council’s West Offices between 10am and 3pm.

ISG is the preferred construction partner for the stadium development as part of the successful consortium bid led by Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL).

Attendees will hear more about ISG’s supply chain standards, the packages still to be let and funding available for training and apprenticeship recruitment.

Representatives from City of York Council, including the Community Stadium Project Team, Procurement, Employment and Skills, will be available to speak to on the day. Other partners attending include GLL, CITB and York College.

Tim Atkins, stadium project manager, said: “It has always been our aim to involve local people in each stage of the project and fully embrace the meaning of a ‘community’ stadium.

“I’d like to see as many local businesses as possible at the event. This is a unique opportunity for suppliers to shape and deliver an exciting building in their own city.”
