MWH Treatment: Winner of Prestigious Construction News Awards
MWH Treatment has won the BIM Excellence category and Jonathan May won the Rising Star category at the 2018 Construction News Awards.
The inspirational winners of the 2018 Construction News Awards were crowned in front of the industry on 12 July at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
The Construction News Awards which celebrated its 22nd year, brought together more than 1,200 of the UK’s leading clients and contractors for a glittering evening of celebration, recognition and networking.
After face to face review by a panel of 70 expert judges, MWH Treatment won in two categories. Jonathan May was our winner in the Rising Star category. The Judges were impressed by his authenticity and his drive to make the industry a better place.
“He really tapped into the key issues and millennial mind-set and offered practical examples of how to change the perception of the industry. He brought the spark and his presentation was sharp. His ideas were superb.”
The second win of the night came in the BIM Excellence category. This award was in recognition of the positive impact that BIM has made on both its client base and supply chain.
By bringing BIM into the collaborative process, MWH Treatment has worked to create a “digital legacy”. BIM is fully embedded within MWH Treatment’s project delivery process, with more than 100 projects making use of the technology and 500 users specially trained. The judges were pleased that the winning submission placed the utmost importance on health and safety.
The company’s success with BIM was highlighted by its work on the Minworth Thermal Hydrolysis Plant, as part of a £40M design-and-build contract.
The client, Severn Trent Water, made a commitment to cut its carbon footprint by 10 per cent during its AMP6 funding cycle. To help it achieve these efficiencies, MWH Treatment used its digital delivery approach to ensure the right decisions were made from concept to commissioning.
With more than 20 supply chain partners operating on the project, collaboration was clearly integral to every stage of MWH Treatment’s strategic planning process.
Paul Bresnan, Managing Director of MWH Treatment was extremely proud of both wins: “The Construction News Awards recognise and celebrate the innovation, confidence and passion of people and their work in the industry. The night was a wonderful opportunity to showcase both our great work and our great people.
I was so impressed with the quality of all the finalists; many of the people and projects showcased tonight set such a high standard for others to follow. To have won both awards further recognises the passion and talent of the people working at MWH Treatment.”
Tom Fitzpatrick, editor of Construction News said:
“The CN Award winners should be proud that they are raising the bar for this industry. From more than 400 entrants, our deserving winners and shortlisted companies collectively showed the leadership, ingenuity and passion to make this sector world class.
“I was particularly proud to recognise Sir Michael Latham’s legacy with an award in his name. In the wake of Carillion’s collapse, this industry needs to collaborate and innovate more than ever and tonight’s winners have done just that.”
Congratulations to all the winners and finalists at last the Construction News awards.
