The “Building Legacies” programme, a partnership of private and public sector organisations, is a flagship local business growth and procurement support project of the East London Business Place (ELBP) and Newham College of Further Education’s Centre for Innovation & Partnerships (CIPs) that enhances the competitiveness of small and medium sized enterprises.
Building Legacies provides an innovative service for SMMEs and start-up businesses, predominantly (but not exclusively) in construction, digital/creative and care-related sectors to enable them to become “fit to supply” providing tailored solutions to SMMEs through Workshops, Briefings, Masterclasses, Toolkits, Networking and 1-2-1 coaching & mentoring.
The programme offers intensive business support to ensure 400 SMMEs benefit from east London and Legacy buying opportunities, utilising ERDF funding to deliver a sustained supported programme tackling gaps in SMMEs’ innovation, contract-readiness and knowledge of procurement and supply-chain requirements.
The programme model is based on a tailored programme of support, underpinned by an engagement and brokerage service for main contractors and buying organisations to help diversify their supply chains, through their local supply chain management strategies.
Clients always wanted something that you did not produce yourself or the size was too big or too small for you machinery.
GD Design & Print was formed in 2007 to offer a broader based service to clients.
The partners have nearly 40 years print experience and this enables them to source anything from design through printing on plastic and paper to stock management, including just in time ordering.
Clients range from small businesses through to a large firm of solicitors based in the City of London. We have been working with Boston University for the past 8 years producing PVC identity charts helping to promote the conservation of land and sea birds in the South Americas. This was also the 6th year that we produced the print for prestigious business awards hosted by the London Borough of Havering at the CEME Conference Centre.
