A number of CESW members including PBWC, Kier, Hydrock and CEC Ltd were involved in the design and construction of the Enterprise Space for Advanced Manufacturing (ESAM) premises near St Austell. This is a purpose-built development with 32 flexible business units dedicated to growing advanced manufacturing, engineering and low carbon environmental goods and services businesses – Click HERE for more details.

Constructing Excellence Cornwall Hub works for local companies bringing together key players in the Cornwall construction and development sector including clients, contractors and supply chain members.

Our main focus is on disseminating best practice, advancing education and construction skills in Cornwall and acting as a voice for our members to feed into strategic plans such as the LEP Construction Strategy and Cornwall Council plans.

We meet once a quarter to discuss and share knowledge and aim to organise two larger events per year.

Our members also attend events in the region and promote the CESW agenda to drive change in the construction sector and promote best practice, making the most of excellent networking opportunities and participating in the Thought Leadership Theme Groups run by CESW.
