Build UK adds Lipton Rogers, Sport England and Quintain as new clients

Lipton Rogers Developments, Sport England and Quintain have become the latest clients to sign up to Build UK.

Build UK has added six clients in six weeks, as it looks to encourage change across the whole supply chain.

The clients join Almacantar, Argent and Great Portland Estates in signing up to work with Build UK.

Lipton Rogers Developments co-founder Peter Rogers said: “Build UK’s enthusiasm and drive to change the industry is infectious and I believe that they are the organisation with the ability to generate real and necessary change in the industry.”

Sport England invests government and National Lottery funding in organisations and projects that help people be more physically active, including building community sport and leisure facilities.

Sport England property director Charles Johnston said: “As a significant funder of contraction projects, it’s vital that we have certainty from our contractors.

“That’s why we’re engaging with the industry through Build UK. We want to build relationships so that we can get the very best outcomes for people when they play and enjoy sport.”

Quintain executive director of construction Matt Voyce said: “When undertaking a project as significant as Wembley Park, it is essential to be engaged with key industry issues.

“Working with Build UK will provide us with valuable insight into construction markets and also allow us to lead by example in continuing to improve practices.”
