Clugston Construction, one of the UK’s leading privately owned building and civil engineering contractors, with offices in Leeds, has been highly commended in the Contractor of the Year category of the Construction News awards 2013.
The Construction News awards are recognised as being the ‘Oscars’ of the construction industry and are the only construction industry awards where all the finalists have to make a face-to-face presentation to the judges.
Judges commended on Clugston’s entry stating that when it comes to focusing on people and showing passion, “The company sets the standard within our industry and has a spirit that the UK should be proud of. This, and a commitment to the supply chain, along with an outstanding performance in its 75th anniversary year, bowled over the judges.”
Steve Radcliffe, Clugston Construction’s managing director, commented, “We are extremely proud to have won the award. It is an honour to be recognised as a leading construction company by our peers. It’s thanks to all our employees that we have come second only to one of the largest construction companies in the UK.”
Clugston, together with its partner Constructions Industrielles de la Méditerranée (CINIM), was recently awarded a contract to build the new Leeds Energy Recovery facility for Veolia Environmental Services, who are waste management partners with Leeds City Council.
Clugston has been established in Leeds for over 30 years and currently employs over 50 people out of its offices in Swillington. With the award of this major project Clugston will be looking to enhance the number and is currently working with Veolia, and Leeds City Council to fill vacancies created by this major project with local people wherever possible.
The company has undertaken many schemes in the Leeds area including supermarket stores in Hunslet and Harehills, Business parks in Morley and factory units in South Leeds.
