Port Talbot based Construction Company Enjoys Success with Series of Award Entries


Following recent news of their success at the 60th year of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016, construction specialist Andrew Scott Ltd is looking to extend their awards cabinet further. The Port Talbot based firm’s name and selected projects have been put forward for a number of awards this year, a move that reveals their on-going success as a rapidly growing construction and civil engineering market leader.

Phil Boorman External Shot 06.05.16Three projects delivered by the Andrew Scott team, in collaboration with other third parties, have been put forward for various awards. The developments at Cardigan Castle, Hirwaun Fire Station and Broad Haven Primary School are set to receive the recognition they deserve at the nationally renowned RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) Awards 2016, the prestigious RSAW (Royal Society of Architects in Wales) Welsh Architecture Awards 2016, and the LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Cymru Building Excellence Awards 2016.

“We would like to thank scheme architect Purcell for their nomination for the RICS and RSAW Awards 2016. The conservation and redevelopment of Cardigan Castle was a great triumph for us so we are delighted that it has been entered in the Building Conservation, Community Benefits, and Tourism & Leisure categories. Our Hirwaun Fire Station project has also been entered for the Design through Innovation award by project architect EOS so we simply cannot wait to attend the award ceremony at Cardiff-based Vale Resort on Friday 19th May to find out our fate,” said Mark Bowen, Managing Director at Andrew Scott Ltd.

Their work at Pembrokeshire-based Broad Haven Primary School is also in line for an award at the LABC Cymru Building Excellence Awards following a nomination by Pembrokeshire County Borough Council. The project has been submitted in the Best Education Building Award category and with the award ceremony set to take place this week the Andrew Scott team won’t have long to wait to discover the outcome.

It’s not just the company’s project successes that are being acknowledged, its growth and achievements as a company are also the subject of two more award entries. Andrew Scott has been identified by Fast Track 25, an invitation-only business club launched by Swansea Bay Business Life and South Wales Evening Post and sponsored by Santander and Bevan and Buckland. Whilst their nomination at the CEW (Constructing Excellence in Wales) Awards could see them crowned ‘SME of the Year’.

“The SME of the Year Award is designed to recognise the achievements of companies with 51 to 250 employees. We would like to thank Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council for the nomination, which was submitted on behalf of the SEWSCAP Framework. We are currently delivering a new primary school in Drefach for Ceredigion Council and it is the first school project to be awarded via the re-procured SEWSCAP-2 Framework. The award ceremony will take place on Friday 15th July at the Celtic Manor Resort so watch this space!” concluded Mark.
