Monday, December 10, 2012


Duncan Sutherland, chairman of Sigma Inpartnership was the guest speaker at the Forum for the Built Environment (FBE) Liverpool branch networking event on Thursday 6th December. 

Speaking to an audience of 60 people at The Royal Liver Building, Duncan provided a brief history of his career which is intrinsically linked to Liverpool. Duncan gave an outline of Sigma Inpartnership and its joint venture with Liverpool City Council, Regeneration Liverpool, which is currently regenerating the Norris Green area of the city region and which has plans for further sites including Lime Street and the Knowledge Quarter. 

Duncan also spoke of his involvement on the board of HS2, which will deliver a high speed rail link between the North and the South and in doing so, contribute to major economic growth in the North West region. 

Phil Osborne, Founder  and committee member of the FBE Liverpool Branch, said: "Duncan is a well-known figure in Liverpool and we were very pleased to welcome him to the FBE. His speech gave an exciting insight into HS2 and major regeneration in the city and the wider community over the next 15 years."

The event was sponsored by Grant Thornton. The next FBE Liverpool branch event will take place on Thursday 21st February. For more information go to www.fbeonline.co.uk
