In recognition of the unique needs of its larger member companies, APHC has launched the Plumbing & Heating Major Contractors Group. APHC has a significant number of members who are larger companies, working on large contracts and representing thousands of employees. The needs of these companies are different in many ways and APHC is determined that the Association should be as relevant, useful and important to them as it is to all of its other members.
All large contracting firms within APHC membership are invited to participate. Also involved in the group are several other influential industry figures such as Professor Rudi Klein, Chief Executive, SEC Group; and Lord ONeill of Clackmannan, who sits in the House of Lords and will chair the Group. This unique group will lobby to influence government policy relating to the industry and it will report key concerns and issues straight to APHCs Board of Directors, with a view to influencing APHCs own policies.
Current issues likely to be considered include public sector procurement policies, cost of pre-qualification, implementing sustainability targets (especially reduction in water usage) and Construction Act amendments. Interested companies should contact APHC for more details.
