GUERNSEY’S Construction Industry Forum is to be relaunched this week as it looks to become a more effective organisation for the whole of the sector.
Five major organisations within the industry are working together to rejuvenate the forum and give it a new direction.
The Construction Industry Forum was founded in association with the States in 2002, with retired bank manager Eric Legg invited to chair it.
He retired from the role at the end of last year, and Tim Guilbert, a member of the forum’s new steering committee, said it was felt that a fresh approach was now required.
Mr Guilbert said the current climate was challenging for his industry.
He urged construction workers to attend a meeting at the performing arts centre at noon this Thursday where a presentation will be given on the plans for the forum. ‘It’s open to everybody in construction, whether they’ve been to meetings before or never heard of the forum.’
