Our supply chain will be crucial to the successful delivery of Peddimore and we are keen to support the local economy by working with local businesses and SMEs.
Among our commitments to ‘buying local’ is to ensure 50 per cent of what we spend is with local suppliers. We have now appointed Winvic Construction as our lead contractor, who are delivering the strategic infrastructure works on site and will be responsible for the build of Unit B.

Social Value - As part of the contract, Winvic will also be delivering a significant programme of social value to benefit the local community, creating opportunities for employment, training, business engagement and donating time and money to the community and its charities. We would like all our sub-contractors to help build on this with the support from our Social Value Manager.

Winvic and their sub-contractors will also be holding two Meet the Buyer Events in 2022, to highlight the types of materials and works they will be looking to source locally at the build stage. These events will be held online in July and November 2022, and the links to sign up will be advertised here closer to the time.
