A big thank you to our sponsors

Whilst the CEW Awards are one of the biggest events in the Welsh construction calendar they would not be possible without the support and commitment of our sponsors.

5th June 2015

Without CEW Award entrants we could not celebrate how great Welsh construction is, but without our sponsors there is no event, no party and no showcasing of industry talent.

So, CEW is enormously grateful for the support of our headline sponsors Network Rail, Costain and ABC Electrification. All of them are tremendous supporters of Wales, its supply chain and the best practice principles advocated by CEW and the wider industry. Thank you to them for their commitment and for being the headline sponsors of the 2015 CEW Awards on 12 June at the Celtic Manor.

Network Rail is the owner and operator of Britain's railway network and provides train operating companies with track access.   It runs, maintains and develops the infrastructure, including stations, track, signaling and level crossings, as well as plans for future capability.  As a 'not for shareholder dividend' company – all profits are re-invested to improve the railway.Responding to unprecedented demand, Network Rail is undertaking the biggest investment in Wales’ railway since Victorian times, including the electrification of the South Wales Mainline.   Electrifying this key railway route will mean faster, greener, quieter and more reliable journeys for tens of thousands of passengers.

Costain is one of the leading UK engineering companies, working in the energy, water and transportation sectors. They are justifiably proud of their track record in Wales including Porth Relief Road, Church Village Bypass and Port Talbot Harbour Way. They are currently delivering Section 2 of the Heads of the Valleys road and the early stages of the M4 Relief Road at Newport. Costain is proud to have received several CEW awards, including the UK Best of the Best Award for Porth Relief Road in 2007.

ABC Electrification was formed by Alstom, Babcock and Costain, to work in partnership with Network Rail on the UK rail electrification programme. ABC is currently working on the West Coast and London-North West mainlines, Edinburgh to Glasgow and two sections of the Great Western Electrification – covering the route from Swindon to Swansea. ABC is also the appointed contractor for the electrification of the Valley Lines.
