Kate’s Vice-Chair roles for SWWIC & TBF

Kate Mills, Business Development Partner at Ward Williams Associates (WWA) has been announced as the new Vice-Chair of South West Women in Construction (SWWIC) and The Building Forum, Devon and Cornwall (TBF).

Kate has been a member of SWWIC for 10 years and during her tenure as Vice-Chair she will be supporting the Chair, Glayne Price of LHC Architects.

SWWIC is a professional network of women, working across the construction industry. They host a wide range of activities from site visits, presentations and informal networking. A primary aim of the organisation is to raise awareness of careers in construction and opportunities available to women in the industry.

One of their most recent events was a site visit to the new Plymouth History Centre, where WWA is providing Project Management services. This visit provided a behind the scenes look at how this landmark project is becoming a reality.

The Building Forum (Devon & Cornwall), was established by a group of like-minded construction professionals, who wanted to increase the number of social events for those working in the industry. These events provide opportunities to build relationships with fellow professionals, whilst enjoying fun activities. For example, their annual bowling event and Building of the Year (BOTY) Awards Dinner.

Kate has been a committee member of TBF for 4 years and during her tenure as Vice-Chair will be supporting the Chair, Brad Coles of Airey & Coles.

Kate joined WWA in 2016 heading up marketing, bid management and business development across the business. She has been influential in building relationships in the regions in which we operate, as well as providing strategic direction for the company’s future development and growth.

Kate Mills, Partner, said:

“As one of the largest Construction Consultancies in the South West and with a significant presence in Devon and Cornwall, we recognise the importance of contributing to professional organisations such as SWWIC and TBF.

“SWWIC has provided a fantastic opportunity for construction professionals in Devon and Cornwall to network and build relationships. Our events are really diverse. From site visits to our popular “Ladies with Influence Lunch”, which are all incredibly well attended. Through our events we have also been able to raise funds for many local charities including Livewire and Hasler Company”.

“The TBF events are incredibly popular and we have already completely sold out for our Autumn Dinner at the end of November. This demonstrates the appetite locally for networking with fellow construction professionals. It is testament to the committee, who organise a fantastic range of events and have developed a loyal membership”.
