Event Website/Booking Link
I-Construct is a supply chain development and innovation support project designed to help UK businesses access opportunities in the construction market and develop new products and services.
At this event Robert Edge will be welcoming our speakers Andy Martin, Director of Communications and Strategy at London Resort Company Holdings and Ellie Evans, Partner at Volterra who is supporting LRCH on supply chain engagement amongst other things.
In their presentations you will learn:
- What the London Resort development is all about and how it plans to become not just the most visited theme park in the UK, but in Europe too
- How the London Resort will encourage local SME suppliers to become part of its supply chain and what it expects from them.
Who is this event for?
All I-Construct members are welcome to attend. The London Resort is keen to encourage local SME’s to become part of its supply chain and opened a web portal last month for companies to enter the details which they will share with their Tier 1 contractors https://marengo.tractivity.co.uk/ExternalFormViewer/Form.aspx?ExternalFormID=1
The London Resort will be the largest theme park to be built from scratch in Europe since Disneyland Paris opened in 1992.
It will be built on 535 acres of brownfield land on the Swanscombe Peninsula in North Kent, capitalising on both rail transport via Ebbsfleet International Station as well as a ferry terminal on site for waterborne visitors travelling from Tilbury and Central London. The development will also include the construction of onsite housing for some of the resort staff, hotels/conference facilities, a water park, the longest rollercoaster in Europe and various other attractions. Because of its location, the development will also make use of the River Thames for the delivery of materials during construction. Sustainability will be an important part of the development both in terms of its construction and operations.
Due to its size and economic impact, London Resort will be the first leisure development ever to be classed as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project, meaning the Government and not the local council will decide on its planning application. The application was submitted on 31st December last year.
This event is open to all SME I-Construct Network members.
The I-Construct Network helps UK-based SMEs access opportunities in the construction market and develop new products and services within their businesses.
If you’re not an I-Construct member but are UK-based and interested in joining, you are welcome to attend one of our events to see what our network has to offer.
