David Cameron visits West Midlands retail development

The prime minister meets apprentices at the Bam Construction / EIC project

The prime minister paid a visit to the £33 million retail and residential regeneration project last Friday that will transform Shirley town centre in the West Midlands.

Bam Construction is building a 7,900 sq m ASDA supermarket and 20 retail units. EIC is the lead M&E contractor on the project.

The construction project got underway in July 2012 after almost eight years of planning challenges. It is due for completion in 2014.

EIC’s apprenticeship programme is a key element of our business improvement strategy.

The Mr Cameron talked with the apprentices and was interested to hear their views on the colleges they attended, the areas of the project that they had worked on and their hopes for the future.

Campbell Murdoch is marketing director at EIC
