South London Procurement Network

  South London Procurement Network - Case studies
Local businesses already making the connections

The redevelopment of the Shell Centre is a major driving force behind the launch of the South London Procurement Network.

The site’s joint venture developers, Canary Wharf Group and Qatari Diar, have already committed to contracts worth over £1m with firms in the local area.

The Network will work with small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in the Borough of Lambeth and also more widely across south London to help them access and bid for contracts from major businesses and projects based in the area.

Here are some examples of local companies who are already making the connection with major firms in the local area, and with the Shell Centre developers and the South London Procurement Network. All will be founder members of the Network.
