Congratulating the overall winners Andrew Arundel Chair of the Yorkshire Constructing Excellence club said,
‘I congratulate all the shortlisted finalists and particularly the winners of each of the 16 categories. It was a fantastic evening and really showed how the Yorkshire and Humber region is at the forefront of delivering ‘excellence in construction’.
Organised by Leeds Metropolitan University and Constructing Excellence a packed Marriot Hotel hosted the CEYH event which is now firmly established as a highlight of the construction calendar in Yorkshire and Humber. The audience, which included guests from across the public and private sectors, was addressed by Keith Gilson giving the real contractor perspective in current economic climate.
The LILAC project emerged as winner of the Legacy – Sustainability Award a project that the judges felt truly represented ‘sustainable development’. The finished product has provided 20 homes and apartments creating community on the site of an old primary school in Bramley, Leeds. LILAC is the UK’s first affordable, ecological co-housing project. The development of twenty houses and apartments welcomed its first residents back in March 2013, and recently celebrated its official opening event. LILAC, which stands for Low Impact Living Affordable Community, is a cohousing group who have commissioned the housing with the assistance of the Homes and Communities Agency, the Technology Strategy Board and White Design. The design is contemporary and sets a new standard for both environmental performance and house design in suburban environments.
BAM Construction Ltd , the integrated design, construction and engineering company swept the board winning the top award for its use of technology (BIM – building information modelling) and project of the year – both for its pioneering approach to the build of Leeds Arena.
BAM Nuttall and Morgan Sindall shared the top spot for another critical category – health and safety – for their joint venture on the M62 managed motorway scheme.
Steve Wheller Design & Planning Director for BAM Construction North said:
‘BAM are delighted to have won 3 of the prestigious Constructing Excellence Awards for Yorkshire and the Humber Region. We are committed to the Constructing Excellence drive for change in the industry to improve performance in order to provide a better built environment.
“Our delivery of the iconic Leeds Arena, our use of BIM and overall Regional performance have all been recognised as examples of innovation and continued improvement.”
Other winners at the awards included Yorkshire Water, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, and consultancy Turner and Townsend.
