Lend Lease and Birmingham City Council have announced that they are to team up with Interbuild BSF to engage with the supply chain at the show this October.
Andrew King, new projects director at Bovis Lend Lease commented: 'It's important that the supply chain knows that we need them. We have 11 schools onsite from August 2010, and we have some significant gaps. Interbuild BSF is perfect in terms of timing if manufacturers have an innovation to profile to our procurement teams.'
Key decision-makers from the Birmingham BSF procurement team, including Bovis, Catalyst Lend Lease and Birmingham City Council will be at Interbuild BSF to see the innovations on show.
In particular, Lend Lease is actively seeking innovations in heating & cooling technologies.
With the procurement process beginning in the autumn, exhibitors showcasing their products at the show will have a guaranteed meeting with the Birmingham BSF project team.
Roger Thompson, education sector director at Catalyst Lend Lease emphasised the need to 'identify the innovations we don't know, not just those we do.'
Interbuild BSF is dedicated to the Building Schools for the Future Programme, and takes place 18-21 October 2009 at the NEC, Birmingham.
Manufacturers wanting to find out more about exhibiting at Interbuild BSF should contact Richard Morris on 020 7728 4626 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
