About Us

Construction Alliance North East (CAN), is a collection of construction and engineering bodies representing over 500 member companies with a combined turnover of £3bn and employing in excess of 100,000 people.

Operating in a sector which was badly affected throughout the recession, CAN has been borne from a desire to support and promote the north east’s talented and highly skilled SME contractors, at a time when many are missing out on work opportunities due to the lack of opportunity arising from public sector procurement methods which have in the main, favoured larger non-regional companies, particularly in relation to construction projects.

Our aim is to highlight this issue and play a strategic role in ensuring that, in future, a fair share of public sector tender opportunities are made available to  all SME construction companies based in the north east.

We hope to achieve this first and foremost by lobbying Government, MPs, MEPs, local authorities and other procurement organisations, to remind them of the benefits, not only to the companies procuring projects but to the regional economy as a whole, of working with regional firms.
