Groups / SME Forum


The lifeblood of our membership, SMEs face a number of issues which are unique to their size and circumstances.

ACE’s SME Forum has informed our work in this area, speaking up on behalf of our small and medium sized members on issues as diverse as late payment in the supply chain, overcoming barriers to bidding for work on larger infrastructure projects and helping them to adapt to the wide-spread use of BIM.

The SME Forum plays a crucial role in shaping these campaigns, but also in ensuring that ACE’s services continue to be useful and relevant to SME members.

The group meets quarterly in London, although those unable to make it in person are free to "dial in", and is open to all SME member companies. There is usually a guest presentation typical topics include liability, risk and insurance, procurement challenges, recruitment and retention, and factors that influence industry changes, such as digital technology or modular construction.

The Chair is Steven Hale of Crofton.
