22 SEP




The quarterly meeting is chaired by Dave Beddell (AECOM), ACE Vice chair Voice of Consultancy, and brings together the chairs of the different policy groups (Net Zero, Places, Transport and mobility and Procurement and pipeline), with ACE's policy team, to discuss the policy and public affairs work of ACE with the membership base.

As well as an opportunity for representatives of ACE members to shape the direction and focus of this activity, it is a chance to gain an understanding of the broader political and economic issues affecting our industry. The session ends with an interactive Q&A offering ACE members the opportunity to ask questions directly to the panellists and staff members.

Our next event focuses on the Infrastructure Projects Authority’s 2021/22 Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline. Simon Lawrence, IPA Strategy Director, joins the procurement group as guest speaker as we explore the pipeline in more detail and highlight the new opportunities for our members. As well as the overall pipeline, we will also hear from Emma-Jane Houghton, Commercial Director for the NHS New Hospital Programme, about the specific opportunities for ACE members in that sector.

Please note that this event is for ACE members only, unless otherwise stated.
