Two award-winning company managers share their views on what winning a CN Specialists Award meant to their business
Barry Henson, director, Crofton Design – winner of the Building Services Award
Winning the Building Services Award at the Construction News Specialists Awards 2012 enabled our contributions to the construction industry to be noted and, importantly, demonstrates the company’s ability to our clients.
We have spent years investing in our staff and their training, and so winning the award was a form of payback and showed us all what can be achieved with hard work.
We’re an SME, so we carefully consider our resources in light of the different award programmes on offer before entering.
From this, we have no doubt winning the Specialists Award has been a major benefit to our business.
Martin Fahey, manager, Mitsubishi Electric Sustainable Solutions – winner of the Low Carbon Award
We were delighted to win, especially because there was a long-list of nine contenders in the category.
The award demonstrates that we have a strong environmental ethic and that we understand how creating truly sustainable buildings requires this level of knowledge and collaboration in the industry.
It also shows that we can supply the industry with the right sustainable solutions.
