We have proudly unveiled our latest initiative called Tendra, aimed at fostering growth and development within the local construction sector.

Tendra has been set up to break down barriers faced by small construction firms, particularly in dealing with administrative hurdles when applying for contracts.

With the strapline “Building the future, one tender at a time,” the project aims to help small businesses to navigate paperwork and gain confidence to bid for work, including larger contracts through platforms like Sell2Wales.

Tendra has been supported by the ARFOR Challenge Fund, a joint venture by Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Gwynedd and Anglesey Councils to explore solutions strengthening the relationship between the Welsh language and the economy is funded by Welsh Government.

Throughout 2024, Tendra will offer a series of free workshops tailored to the needs of small construction businesses. The sessions will cover essential topics such as understanding social value, pricing jobs effectively, prioritising health and safety, obtaining necessary accreditations, and developing a comprehensive training matrix.

These workshops are designed to share the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in a competitive industry landscape to help small construction businesses in the sector.

There will be practical support, resources, and networking opportunities and Tendra will also nurture the long-term sustainability and success of these businesses.


Keep an eye out for workshops that will be arranged for September to December 2024.

  • Workshops will be held on:
  • The procurement process
