The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) is set to launch two further Regional Training Centres with the assistance of Marshalls, the UK’s leading hard landscaping supplier. The new Regional Training Centres will be hosted in Marshalls Design Space facilities in central Birmingham and in Clerkenwell, London. They will both open after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
BMF Regional Training Centres provide meeting and training spaces for smaller groups to come together, reflecting the BMF’s localisation strategy to help members participate in events closer to their own home base, thus reducing time spent away from their business.
Peter Hallitt, Marshalls’ Group trading managing director, said: “The two Marshalls Design Spaces are ideal venues for this purpose, designed for construction industry professionals to explore, experiment and imagine a range of possibilities. They are great places to learn too and we are delighted to support the BMF in this way.”
BMF CEO, John Newcomb said: “I would like to thank Marshalls for working with the BMF to bring our second and third Regional Training Centres on stream. They are both fantastic spaces and will serve city centre areas in the BMF’s Midland and London/South East regions. Our first RTC, in Cornwall, serves the far South West, and we are targeting three more by the end of the year, which will give us one in each of our five UK regions and one in Ireland.”
