WALES WINS THREE OUT OF TEN NATIONAL CONSTRUCTING EXCELLENCE AWARDS

Wales confirmed its status as a construction centre of excellence when it won three out of the ten awards at the National Constructing Excellence Awards on 19 November.

Three of the winners from the Constructing Excellence in Wales Awards held in September have gone on to be named as national winners proving that Welsh construction is at the forefront of UK best practice.

Laing O’Rourke Wales & West secured the Health & Safety Award for its work at the North Wales Adolescent Unit where it had zero reported accidents and demonstrated how safety can be improved through collaborative working.  Lawson Construction won the SME Award following a second successive year of investment, development and commitment to rethinking construction principles.  Whilst the Integration & Collaboration Award was presented to Monmouthshire County Council and Willmott Dixon Construction Ltd in recognition of its work over the past ten years delivering the county councils schools programme.

The CE National Awards, held at Lords Cricket Ground on 19 November in front of an audience of around 400 people, are the best of the best from the twelve regions that comprise Constructing Excellence.

Milica Kitson, CEW chief executive said: “This was a great night for Wales and confirmed that we are a centre of excellence for construction and an example to anyone adopting collaborative working practices.  Congratulations to our Welsh winners!”
