Balfour Beatty win at Builders Profile sponsored BCLive 2015
Balfour Beatty, Van Elle and Hill Partnership win at The Builders Conference BCLive Awards event sponsored by Builder’s Profile and hosted at The Savoy Hotel, London.
Nearly 400 senior construction industry professionals came together to celebrate The Builders Conference 80th Anniversary and to watch the presentation of 3 prestigious Builders Profile sponsored awards: New Business Achievement, Presidents Trophy and Overall Trophy.
The inaugural New Business Achievement award, to recognise the ‘greatest improvement of subcontractor orders over the year’, went to piling specialist Van Elle Ltd. Van Elle Group Director, Vic Handley, accepted the award from Builder’s Profile Director Paul Long who said, “Van Elle is a real subcontractor success story. Having a ‘Builder’s Profile’ has showcased their company as professionally capable, and reduced the complication and time taken to pre-qualify with multiple main contractors – with tangible results. So congratulations Van Elle, you’re a worthy winner!”
The President’s Award was presented to Hill Partnership’s Director, Steve Kane. Builders’ Conference President, Dave Chapman of Borras Construction, worked with the BCLive research team to ‘identify the company that truly stood out in terms of new orders’. “Hill Partnership have reaped the reward for their hard work in 2015 by winning a lot of new business. This award recognizes the fantastic results that their commitment has delivered”, said Paul Long.
Balfour Beatty were the overall winner on the day by securing more than 70 major contracts with a combined value of over £3 billion. The trophy was presented to a smiling Balfour Beatty Director Harry Townley by The Builder’s Conference CEO Neil Edwards. Neil commented, “Balfour Beatty, Van Elle and Hill Partnership each achieved an incredible performance during 2015 and we are delighted to recognise and reward those achievements”.
He went on to say; “Builder’s Profile is the solution to the cost and repetitive pain of managing compliance and PQQ information because it allows main contractors and subcontractors to store, manage and share information in a simple open-access common database. We see really great synergies available to The Builder’s Conference and the industry through using Builder’s Profile, so we’re really pleased to welcome them as sponsors of BCLive.”
Builder’s Profile Chairman Frank Becker described the event as a resounding success, “Yet again the Builders’ Conference, the oldest Trade Association in the country, brought together the leaders of the UK construction industry to celebrate the successes of 2015.”
