Industry leaders crowned at Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards 2017

Share This:

 

Last Friday saw the culmination of six months of meticulous planning by the Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber team based at Leeds Beckett University to bring you this year’s #CEYH2017 awards and what an incredible night it was! Held at the Queen’s Hotel in central Leeds, we welcomed over 350 of the region’s construction and property professionals to our 10th Anniversary celebration of the best examples of industry achievement in the last twelve months.

 

Sponsored by Galliford Try and once again hosted by Danni Hewson, BBC Look North’s business correspondent and industry champion, attendees were treated to networking drinks and a three course summer themed meal, set against our spectacular Yorkshire and Humber AV backdrop of Burnsall Village. We also welcomed Rosie Millard, Chair of Hull City of Culture as our keynote speaker for the evening who gave a captivating presentation on everything Hull has been up to this year so far and a taster of what is still to come. Rosie’s speech definitely went down a storm with our Humber contingent who are rightly proud of their home city! Continuing the Yorkshire theme was our awards playlist featuring only bands from the region; Def Leppard, the Cult and Chumbawumba to name a few; and our Yorkshire coast themed fun photobooth where attendees posed with hats, ice creams and even an inflatable seagull against a picture of Scarborough.

However the real regional stars were the outstanding projects, schemes and organisations who made up the CEYH2017 finalists. Fourteen awards were handed out in total covering the key best practice themes of Constructing Excellence as well as the much coveted and fiercely contested “Selfie of the night”. A special Chair’s award was also handed out posthumously to Dr Andrew Platten, former Associate Dean of Arts, Environment and Technology at Leeds Beckett University who was tragically killed in a cycling incident last July. In honour of Andrew, this year’s chosen charity was Brake and the team were thrilled to raise over £2500 through donations and raffle entries. Many thanks to Keelham Farm Shop, Queen’s Hotel, Snap Recipe Box and East 59th for their generous prize donations.

However the real winner on the evening was the industry itself. The sheer diversity of projects from local regeneration schemes to multi-million facilities demonstrates once again that the Yorkshire and Humber region is at the forefront of pushing boundaries, driving up standards and finding new ways to work collaboratively to achieve mutual cross sector benefit. So all we have left to do is extend a huge THANK YOU to all our sponsors, supporters, entrants, judges and participants. We look forward to seeing you again in 2018!

Factory 2050 is a smart factory and arguably the world’s most advanced production facility.

Completed in late 2015 it is a joint venture between the University of Sheffield and Boeing and has been a catalyst for future investment within South Yorkshire’s buoyant advanced manufacturing district.

It is the UK’s first totally reconfigurable, digital factory for collaborative research and provides a world class environment for robotics and automation, integrated large volume metrology, digitally assisted assembly and manufacturing informatics.

 

It was also a game changer project for Interserve within Yorkshire, their first project for the University of Sheffield and their first advanced manufacturing project within the region.

The project has been a huge success; it was delivered safely, on time and within budget whilst overcoming a number of challenges associated with a circular building and a logistically complex site.

The excellence of the outcomes achieved along with the collaborative approach adopted, recognised by the project being crowned the National Constructing Excellence ‘Building Project of the Year’ in 2016.

Please join us on Thursday 30th March at Factory 2050, where the Interserve project team will present a case study on the project and provide a tour of the facility.

Tackling the Skills Gap at CEYH May Breakfast seminar

 Julie Deeley, Futureworks Yorkshire

On 25th May we held the second of our Hull based Constructing Excellence breakfasts at Gosschalks Solicitors, this time tackling one of the most prevalent issues in the industry at the moment, the skills shortage. It has been predicted that the industry will create around 190,000 new jobs by the end of 2018 but the growing fear is that the talent will not be there to fill those posts. At our event we heard from Futureworks Yorkshire and Wates Group on how they are working to create apprenticeships and encourage new entrants to our industry in order to try and tackle this deificit.

Debbie Hall, Business Reporter at Hull Daily Mail has done a summary of the main points in her  article dated 31st May (link here). The article has also been reproduced below for ease.

Construction firms urged to help tackle impending shortage in talent

COMPANIES are being urged to help tackle the skills shortage in the construction industry. The issue was the focus of an “excellence breakfast” hosted by Hull law firm Gosschalks. The event, organised by Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire & Humber (CEYH), was held amid growing fears there will not be sufficient talent within the country to fill the predicted 190,000 new jobs that will be created in construction by the end of 2018. The industry is seen as one of the leading pillars of the UK economy and the lack of required skills could have a huge impact on economic recovery, according to CEYH. The event saw more than 30 delegates from a range of contractors, councils, training groups and construction consultancies, in attendance.

Steve Savage, Development Director at Gosschalks, opened the proceedings and Tom Oulton, chairman of CEYH, gave an introduction in which he spoke about the Government’s Construction Strategy for 2016 to 2020, which sets out to increase productivity in government construction to deliver £1.7bn efficiencies and support 20,000 apprenticeships over the period.

One of the speakers was Julie Deeley, operations manager for Futureworks Yorkshire, one of the organisations working to tackle the skills deficit and nurture homegrown talent. She offered insight into how Futureworks is working with construction companies, local organisations and communities across Yorkshire to offer increased apprenticeships and work experience opportunities. Ms Deeley said: “It is not about providing all the answers today, it is about opening your mind to what your company can do about meeting this skills shortage.” Futureworks is based in Hull and Rotherham and delivers the award- winning YORfuture scheme across the Yorkshire and Humber region. It provides apprenticeships within the sector, including technical, trades, administration and manufacturing/distribution roles.

Ms Deeley told delegates that the YORfuture shared apprenticeship scheme provided a solution to apprenticeship recruitment when employers may not have the resources to take apprentices on a full-time basis. Asked about the difficulty of encouraging schools to see the opportunities that exist in the industry, Ms Deeley said: “What we need to do is get out there as much as possible and put out the word on construction and what a good career it is. We need, as a sector, to get the message out that there are many different careers you can have in construction, in particular for females. ”

Another speaker was Angie Eardley, community investment adviser at Wates Group, a family-owned construction company that is currently helping to create an £80m housing development in Hull for people with care needs. She spoke to the audience about the group’s community investment commitments and it’s supply chain and social enterprise engagement. The delegates heard the CITB, the national training organisation for construction in the UK, has reported that another 230,000 workers will be needed in the construction sector in the next five years – a figure that equates to 3,230 people each year in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

Skills Excellence: Closing the Gap – join us on 25th May 2016 for our next CEYH breakfast event

Building Futures Sponsored by Wates

The skills shortage in construction has been widely reported by much of our media and with good reason. It has been predicted that the industry will create around 190,000 new jobs by the end of 2018 but there is a growing fear that there will not be the talent within the country to fill them. The construction industry is one of leading pillars of the UK economy and therefore lack of required skills could have a huge impact on our economic recovery.

At our breakfast event at the end of May we will hear from Futureworks Yorkshire, one of the organisations who are trying to tackle this deficit. Julie Deeley, Operations Manager, will be giving examples of how they work with construction companies, local organisations and communities across Yorkshire to offer increased apprenticeships and work experience opportunities.

We will also hear from Angie Eardley, Regional Community Investment Advisor and Richard Vause, Project Manager both from Wates Group who will give practical examples of the positive steps Wates are taking on their projects/sites to encourage new entrants into our industry.

Unlocking your BIM specifications with Assa Abloy at our #ceyh2016 breakfast event

Share This:

On the 21st January 2016 we welcomed around 30 individuals from across the regional construction sector back to Addleshaw Goddard’s offices in Leeds for the first of our 2016 constructing excellence breakfast events. Our alliteratively titled “Starting to specify the specifics of your specification” (CEYH Chair, Tom Oulton, was especially proud of that title!) event explored the RIBA Plan of Works Stage 2 from the viewpoint of BIM and product specifications.

Our main speaker for this event was Andy Stolworthy, BIM Manager at Assa Abloy. Assa Abloy are a global supplier of intelligent lock and security solutions formed 1994 through the merger of ASSA in Sweden and Abloy in Finland. Andy joined ASSA ABLOY UK in September 2003 working in a number of technical and product management roles. In his current role, Andy is the Technical and Commercial lead on BIM for the company as well as being a member of the BIM4M2 Data Templates group working to develop a useable platform that can support BIM adoption with a number of industry bodies such as CIBSE. A twitter summary of the key points from Andy’s presentation along with images can be found in the storify below.

Following Andy’s presentation, CEYH Chair Tom Oulton gave an overview of some of the CE supported events happening in our region over the next few months including thinkBIM’s much anticipated 23rd March conference, headlined by David Philp and this year’s Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire and Humber awards. Further details at the booking links below.
