Building Contractor Gets Handful of Shortlistings in Excellence Awards


A building firm has received five shortlistings in awards that celebrate the best construction projects and companies in Wales.

Pave Aways, which has offices in Newtown and Wrexham serving its projects in Mid and North Wales, will go through to the next round of judging for Building Project of the Year for the Hafan Yr Afon Visitor and Community Centre in Newtown in the Constructing Excellence Wales awards.

Pave Aways has also been shortlisted in the Value Award for Hafan Yr Afon and the People Development category. Welshpool Church in Wales Primary School, which it built for Powys County Council, has made it through to the Sustainability category and the Value Award after being nominated by the designers Architype.

A panel of judges will now interview Pave Aways and key members of the project teams during April with the winners revealed at a ceremony at Celtic Manor in Newport on June 16th.

Managing Director Steven Owen said:

“This is an amazing achievement for us, our clients, the architects and everyone involved in working on these projects.

“It is great to see Mid Wales so well represented in the shortlisted projects and we hope to fly the flag for the great work we are doing in the region when we meet the judges.”

Last year, Pave Aways was highly commended for Passivhaus social housing which it built in Sarn for Powys County Council in the Residential Property category.
