Construction Excellence Awards

Last week EMCBE held its annual Construction Excellence Awards, and Robert Woodhead won the Heritage category for their work on Pleasley Colliery.

Judges comments on this award: ‘These buildings of course, provide the most difficult challenge not only to the surrounding communities, but also in terms of intervention as in many instances they appear on a much larger scale with relatively uncommon repair elements to focus on. In the past it has been only to easy to discard much of what is now cherished and worthy of preserving from our industrial past and without attention, we may lose important links to the past which can provide much needed tourism opportunities to challenged areas.’
