Cardiff University is hosting a ‘meet the bidders’ event for companies interested in working on its £300M innovation Campus.
The event is designed to bring together construction companies, contractors and suppliers providing networking opportunities between bidders, suppliers and subcontractors.
The half-day event is being held at the Business School’s Postgraduate Teaching Centre on 16th November.
Chris Strong, Portfolio Director, Cardiff Innovation Campus, said: “Our ‘Meet the Bidders’ event is designed to give companies early access to the big players bidding for the construction and fit-out contract, which we expect to announce at the end of December 2017.
“Inviting expressions of interest from supply-chain providers now will help ease the start of the build in 2018. We are interested in talking to a range of contractors and suppliers, from heavy plant operators through to companies providing office fixtures and fittings.”
The brand new Cardiff Innovation Campus is at the heart of the University’s vision for economic prosperity in Wales. Based on Maindy Road, the development will see two new buildings housing four academic centres of excellence, such as the Institute for Compound Semiconductors and Cardiff Catalysis Institute which are already pioneering 21st Century scientific research.
The Innovation Centre will nurture partnerships between entrepreneurs, business leaders, professional advisers, academics and students, and the Social Science Research Park will help solve societal problems through collaborative research.
