Building4Growth

Leading the way...

Greater Manchester has a long and proud history of innovation and leadership, and our ambition is to ensure that this great region continues to lead the way, in the North and beyond.

Our homes, the buildings where we work, or the infrastructure that helps us to move between them − the construction sector is a crucial but often overlooked sector that is a key part of our economy and provides the backbone of the Northern Powerhouse.

Building4Growth is a business development programme, delivered in collaboration with CITB, to support SME construction businesses across Greater Manchester. It’s been created because we want to help nurture a lean, efficient, modern and vibrant sector.

About the Programme

The fully-funded programme is specifically designed for people who are running a small and successful B2B construction company* within a commercial environment who are now ready to scale-up their business.

We aim to help business leaders make that step-change and look into new areas of development, with a focus on winning new commercial contracts and increasing workforce capacity, so they can grow into their next phase.

Building4Growth will be a collaborative approach utilising our broad range of our specialist services and partnerships.

*Eligibility and Suitability Criteria Apply
