Wales triumphs three times at the Constructing Excellence National Awards

Welsh construction asserted its position as the pace setter in the change agenda for UK construction winning three out of the 14 categories at the Constructing Excellence National Awards on 28th January 2022.

At the Marriot Grosvenor Square, London, around 300 leading decision makers, influencers, contractors and members of the supply chain attended an award ceremony hosted by Steve Walls. Wales was one of the major winners on the night – confirming that the construction business improvement community in Wales is doing a lot of things right.

There were three Welsh winners and two highly commended categories.

Perhaps most pleasing was the team behind the Dragons Heart Hospital who won the Integration & Collaborative Working category – proving exactly what the construction supply chain is capable of when it collaborates and focuses on outcomes. Led by Mott MacDonald Ltd, Cardiff & Vale University Health Board, Archus, ES Global, BDP and Hoare Lea the Principality Stadium in Cardiff was transformed into a fully functioning Covid hospital within weeks.

Thames Valley Construction & Civil Engineering were our winners of Health, Safety & Wellbeing, demonstrating how to maintain production safely during the pandemic. And emphasising the progress made in Wales and aligned with Government and industry targets, Tre Ifan were winners of the Offsite category.

The results on Friday evening at the Constructing Excellence National Awards proved that Welsh construction is innovative, focused on collaboration and best practice and looks to the future. Confirmed again with our two highly commended mentions – Rachael Ng as our G4C Future Leader and the Home Grown Homes and Tre Ifan Housing Scheme as highly commended in the Innovation category.

Well done everyone. You can be winners like this too if you enter our CEW Awards 2022 and book a table at Celtic Manor on 17 June.
