Awards success for Woodhead

Posted onPosted on 6th Jun

Edwinstowe-based construction firm Woodhead is celebrating after taking home four accolades from this year’s East Midlands Celebrating Construction Awards.

The ceremony at The Nottingham Belfry, was attended by the region’s top construction firms, suppliers and partners. The Celebrating Construction Awards is held each year to recognise excellence in the industry.

Beating tough competition, Woodhead walked away with four awards, after being shortlisted in five categories.

Heritage award
– the Woodhead Heritage team took home the Heritage award, having been nominated for its £4m restoration of Marble Hall in Derby. The former Rolls Royce headquarters has now been restored to its former glory and, managed by Derby City Council, will act as a small business hub for the budding entrepreneurs of Derby.

Innovation award and Leadership and people development award – Woodhead Group won two categories for its innovative Good to Gold programme which was delivered last year for the first time. Designed to support around 100 of its sub contractors, Good to Gold, was a structure programme of training courses, designed to upskill, motivate and inspire the organisation’s supply chain, enabling them to grow with Woodhead, as the business continues to expand.

Value award – Rethinking housing delivery, a programme being delivered for A1 Housing and Bassetlaw District Council. The already award winning project will see Woodhead Living deliver 71 new homes to Bassetlaw over a three year programme, in the first major social housing project in the district for 35 years.

Craig Pygall, Construction Director at Robert Woodhead Ltd, said: “We’ve had a fantastic couple of years, delivering some iconic projects, as well as achieving best value for our customers and concentrating on the extra we can offer, in terms of local investment, job and employment opportunities and community engagement.

“Our teams running these successful projects deserve all the accolades they get, as it’s not just about what you build or where, it’s about how you go about achieving that and the legacy you leave behind. We’re determined to not just build structures, but to create a better experience for all, and we’re delighted to have been recognised our achievements.”

Also shortlisted at the awards in the Collaboration and Integrated working category was Woodhead Improve’s project for City of Lincoln Council and Department for Work and Pensions. The project, procured through the empaii Minor Works Framework transformed City Hall into a new base for the DWP and JobCentre Plus.
