Members among winners at inaugural awards

Two Chamber members were among the winners at the inaugural Building Communities in the East Midlands tonight.

More than 350 representatives of housing providers and construction firms across the region were at the gala dinner awards ceremony at the East Midlands Conference Centre earlier this evening.

Henry Boot Construction scooped the Contractor of the Year award and Nottingham City Homes picked up both the Sustainable & Renewable Technologies and Project of the Year accolades.

Both firms also sponsored awards, as did fellow Chamber member J Wright Roofing.

The awards were hosted by regional procurement consortium, Efficiency East Midlands, also a Chamber member.

The not-for-profit organisation works with 31 housing providers and public sector bodies to help make efficiency savings on asset management and maintenance work programmes across the country.

Managing Director Pete Smith set up the awards to mark the work of the region’s housing organisations and contractors, both in the public and private sector.

He said: “These awards celebrate the region’s commitment to building communities, creating sustainable homes and working collaboratively to support affordable rent through innovative schemes.

“We were overwhelmed at quality of the entries we received. The winners are all very deserving of their awards and we look forward to seeing them again next year and finding out more about their ongoing and future programmes of work.”
