Tonight, we are attending the British Construction Industry Awards gala dinner held at Grosvenor House Hotel in London. We were shortlisted, along with Balfour Beatty, in the Application of Technology Award category for our entry titled ‘The innovative uses of Mobile Ground Penetrating Radar’, which was applied on A63 Castle Street Improvement. The judges visited all completed projects and carried out rigorous interviews so to be shortlisted through this process is an honour.
Tonight’s event marks the 30th anniversary of the British Construction Industry Awards, and it is sure to be a fantastic ceremony. These awards are the only construction industry awards scheme to have the backing of the Prime Minister, through our Prime Minister’s Better Public Branding Award, as well as being the only awards to call on the whole project team – from client, to architect, designer and contractor – to showcase their work and demonstrate its impact on society to the panel of expert judges.
The British Construction Industry Awards mission is to recognise and reward excellence in project delivery, design, use of technology, construction and crucially, delivering outcomes for society. We are incredibly proud to have our work recognised for our solution using Mobile Ground Penetrating Radar technology, as this represents an important step towards our vision of 'delighting every customer by combining our passion with technology to deliver quick turnaround, world-class utility surveys.' As Business Development Manager Luke Steadman stated, “being shortlisted for this prestigious award is an outstanding achievement for the Catsurveys and Balfour Beatty teams and moves us one step closer to our vision.”
We look forward to attending the event later this evening, and we all have our fingers crossed that we will win! Wish us luck!
