While we’ve been working hard as usual to help businesses all across the UK with high quality new builds and refurbishments, it’s also been a good time for our dedicated team in terms of recognition.
Not only are we up for recognition at the prestigious Construction Enquirers Awards in Birmingham but we’ve been invited to contribute to the Parliamentary Review 2019 and have had a full feature included in the BDC Magazine about our safety record.
This has been a great year for Hightown already and we’ve been involved in a number of large building projects across the North West and the UK. It’s heartening to get recognition and to find out just how much appreciated the efforts of our construction teams are.
Parliamentary Review 2019
The Parliamentary Review is an annual publication which is sent out to about half a million policymakers around the UK, including MPs and procurement officers. It’s been contributed to by some fairly well-known names in the past, including Theresa May and Greg Clark as well as major institutions like the UKs top universities and a host of high profile businesses.
The idea is to produce an article that showcases best practice in the industry and Hightown has been chosen because it’s a leader in the field of construction. The Review article means we’ve also been invited to the annual House of Commons Gala which includes notable people from politics, entertainment, sport and the business world.
Construction Enquirer Awards
We’ve also been recognised in the category Best Main Contractor to Work For at the National Construction Enquirer Awards. This is an annual event held at the Hilton in Birmingham and we’ll be attending in the early part of October. As a construction company, we work hard to make sure that our teams have everything they need to do a good job for our clients. The CE Award is a sign that many of our staff appreciate what we do!
Feature in the BDC Magazine
The Building Design and Construction magazine is one of the staples of the industry, both online and in print. We were honoured to have a full feature article included in the magazine about our approach to health and safety. The article is titled: ‘Safety Doesn’t Happen By Accident’ and outlines our approach and process to H&S when completing a new build such as the data centre at John Moore’s University in Liverpool recently.
Health and safety is a huge part of our operation, especially when working with organisations such as universities where there can be thousands of students on site at any one time. Our process involves working closely with all stakeholders to make sure that all the appropriate measures are put in place that keep everyone safe but also allow the natural business of the organisation to continue.
As a family firm with over 40 years’ experience delivering high quality builds and refurbishments, we’ve always understood that health and safety is a continually evolving process and have worked hard to ensure that all facets of our organisation reflect that.
