As promised, the South East Wales Best Practice Club are following up on the excellent session that it ran at the end of last year in relation to the potential options for the future funding of Welsh Infrastructure.  You may recall that we heard from Scottish Futures on their NPD model; BAM in relation to a road project in Holland and the involvement of the pension fund;, as well as the work on the funding model at Ely Bridge in Cardiff within the housing sector.

On 24th September 2013 we will be holding a workshop for key individuals and organisations from across the welsh construction and engineering industry to engage with the  Finance Minister’s team to explore financial initiatives to develop our nation’s infrastructure.

The workshop will be opened by Tony Norris, Chair of the SE Wales Best Practice Club. Matthew Pizzi and Steve Davies from the Welsh Government will provide an update on the Wales Infrastructure Improvenment Plan (WIIP) and the funding models currently being investigated to support the delivery of the WIIP. Three short presentations will be made by experts in the field of infrastructure funding models and these experts will then join one of three workshop groups to discuss and debate the relative merits of these funding models, their relevance within Wales, the potential challenges and opportunities that they present and the potential impacts, both positive and negative, on the construction industry in Wales, There will also be an opportunity to propose other models.

The objective of the workshop is to offer the industry’s views to the Welsh Government as to how they can introduce private sector funding to support their infrastructure programme. This is a great opportunity for influential individuals and organisations with the welsh construction industry to work with the government to help to shape future infrastructure programmes through a succesfull “Made in Wales solution”.
