Pave Aways scoops award for Welshpool project
A Shropshire building firm has scooped a national award for its work on a £4.6m factory development in Welshpool.
Pave Aways has been presented with a Bronze certificate in the Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards 2019 for its work on the 5,500m² Invertek Drives production and warehouse facility at Offa’s Dyke Business Park.
The new build, which was completed in 2018 on behalf of the Welsh Assembly, is adjacent to its main production facility and headquarters and was constructed to provide additional capacity for Invertek Drives to meet the growing global demand for its services.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non-profit-making, independent organisation set up by the construction industry in 1997 to improve its image.
Sites are judged on how they rate against the scheme’s five-point Code of Considerate Practice including appearance, respect to the community, protecting the environment, securing safety and valuing their workforce.
Site Manager Elwyn Preece collected the award on Pave Aways’ behalf at a ceremony in Manchester on March 28.
Managing Director Steven Owen said: “The Considerate Constructors Scheme’s National Awards are a highly anticipated event in the construction industry’s calendar that recognises achievements in the advancement of the considerate construction ethos.
“At all our sites, our impact on the community and health, safety and welfare of our workers and the public is paramount. We are delighted that the hard work of Elwyn and our team has been rewarded with this prestigious national award and it was very well deserved.”
