Hat trick for Hinkley Point C at Constructing Excellence Awards
The construction team building the new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C in Somerset scored a triple award scoop at the South West Constructing Excellence Awards.
For the eleventh year running, 450 delegates gathered together at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol on 22 June 2018, to celebrate the best of the region’s innovative construction projects and talented individuals.
The Hinkley Point C project won the awards for:
Integration & Collaborative Working
Client of the Year
Winner of Winners
David Sutton, Civils Delivery Director at Hinkley Point C said: “We entered three categories and we're thrilled that we won all three. These awards represent a huge amount of collaboration, innovation and hardwork right across the HPC team. I’m proud that we have been acknowledged not only as Client of the Year but as the Winner of Winners. Team HPC is leading the way in construction excellence and we are proud to be part of it.”
Dave Speight, Head of Civils, added: "The Innovation and Collaborative Working award is particularly significant for a nuclear construction project as big as ours. Developing a new approach to integrated and collaborative delivery, the HPC Project Delivery Model was recognised as industry-leading innovation, beating several strong contestants in conventional construction projects."
