About G4C:

G4CSW is part of Construction Excellence South West, and we share joint aims to promote future leaders in the industry. G4CSW has been rapidly growing momentum as the South West’s young professional voice of the UK built environment.

G4CSW is particularly focused on encouraging students of school age to consider a career in the industry. We hope our group of inspiring and relatable individuals will help demonstrate the opportunities available in the industry to the next generation.


Are you an ambitious and enthusiastic young/junior member of the construction industry who is keen to influence the agenda, raise your profile, accelerate your growth and become a future leader? Or do you know someone who is?

If so, you may want to seize this opportunity to get involved with G4CSW.

G4CSW is being BRAVE – it is undergoing an exciting change and restructure.

The G4CSW committee is being split into 8 sub-committees, so we can provide the best possible service to key locations and cities in the South West. These locations and cities align with the current Constructing Excellence South West clubs. Each sub-committee will have its own Chair, who will report back to our overall South West Chair (Lizzy Painter) on a regular basis with the other sub-committee Chairs. This is to ensure continuity across the group, alignment of agenda, and to help each other grow into these roles. We are looking for individuals to join the sub-committees for their area, either as a Chair or on the sub-committee.
