Groups / North West

Skyline, Manchester.


Home to confident cities like Manchester and Liverpool, the economic hubs of the region, the North West forms half of the proposed Northern Powerhouse. These cities are also home to metro mayors who have gained significant powers over matters such as transport, housing, planning and economic development.

Given these new local powers, national focus on levelling up, and moves towards establishing the Northern Powerhouse, ACE’s North West group has a unique opportunity to build on the great strides made in recent years by members who have proactively responded to consultations, hosted events and fed into ACE’s overall policy work.

The group forms a body of unrivalled knowledge which can help the cities in the North West positively make the case for more construction and infrastructure investment.

The group meets quarterly and includes representatives of the following ACE member companies: AECOM, Arup, Clancy Consulting, Curtins Consulting, Tony Gee, GHD, Gleeds Corporate Services, Mott MacDonald, M W Barber Associates, Parker Wilson Consulting, Sutcliffe and WSP.

The Chair is Sean Keyes of Sutcliffe.
