Brent businesses are being invited to bid for contracts working on the ‘UK’s greenest public building’.

Construction of the Wembley Civic Centre is now underway and Brent Council hopes to encourage local businesses to bid for the wide range of contracts up for tender.

The council, along with the building’s construction contractor Skanska UK, are teaming up with Business to Business to launch the Civic Centre Supply Chains programme.

Aktar Choudhury, project director for the Civic Centre, says: “Brent’s new Civic Centre will be the UK’s greenest public building.

“This is not just about how the building will be constructed and the materials used, it is also about how the building will be used and the benefits it will bring to the local economy, the community and the environment

“Brent Council is committed to ensuring vital opportunities for jobs for local people on site and for businesses to bid for work on site.”
