Kier event celebrates developments at Berkeley GREEN17th November 2016
Kier Group plc hosted a celebratory breakfast event at the Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park, Friday 11th November, in the recently completed GREEN Centre.
The event marked the site’s development, which when complete will offer some of the best training facilities in the country for the science, technology, engineering and manufacturing industries. Over 100 guests were in attendance to enjoy breakfast, networking, and a series of presentations and guided tours of the new facilities. Speakers at the event include representatives from SGS College, Kier and Gloucester Council.
Kier are the main contractors on both SGS Berkeley Green and the UTC College. The GREEN Centre will continue to be developed over the next five years, incorporating education, training, business start-up and research facilities with a focus on the development of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Property Manager at Berkeley GREEN, Pete Barratt, comments: “The event was a fantastic opportunity for Kier, SGS College and the council to discuss what benefits can come out of the Berkeley GREEN redevelopment. There is huge potential for not just young learners but also local businesses - whether they are looking for the next generation of employees or a site where their business can grow and prosper.”
A great place to discover what will be on offer at SGS Berkeley GREEN UTC, is at December’s open event, which will take place Thursday 1st December 5:30 – 8:00pm.
