Building Growth South West: Who are we?

Construction means so much more than working on a building site.

Through fully funded projects, our mission is to connect opportunities in the construction sector with those who might not have considered it as a potential career path.

We’re here to bridge that gap, provide you with information and help you see the benefits working in construction can provide.
