Three companies working across the development and construction sector joined forces to stage a networking event in Nottingham.
Civil and structural engineering firm BSP Consulting, planning consultancy DLP Planning and Roythornes Solicitors came together to host the event for 50 guests at the Riverbank Bar & Kitchen, near Trent Bridge.
The BBQ and networking evening provided the chance for professionals in the sector to catch up on the latest trends and news for the development and construction industry, and to chat about existing and upcoming projects and opportunities in the East Midlands.
“It’s good to get together with others who work in development, in an informal environment, and everyone seemed to enjoy renewing acquaintances and making new contacts,” said BSP Consulting business development director Jef Todd. “It’s an exciting time in the sector, with lots of key schemes underway in the region and others in the pipeline.”
