KELTBRAY WINS TOP CONSTRUCTION NEWS AWARD

Esher 25 February 2015: Keltbray Group has won this year’s coveted Construction News Specialist Contractor of the Year Award (turnover over £25m) on the back of what was an exceptional year for the company.

As a specialist business, which offers engineering, construction, demolition, decommissioning, remediation, rail and environmental services, Keltbray remains unique in the UK and a worthy winner of this award in what is the company’s 40th year.

Keltbray has over four decades continued to develop its specialist services in line with the market. This extensive portfolio allows Keltbray to offer a range of standalone services, which can also be provided as an integrated offering that cannot be matched in the UK.

Keltbray’s success is evidenced by its many award wins, repeat business and increasingly complex projects, such as Battersea Power Station and Earls Court, and has been achieved by adopting a clear strategy, where a strong financial performance is combined with sustainable growth where projects are delivered safely, efficiently, on time and budget, with care for the environment and our communities.

Keltbray sees its people as key to its success and provides unrivalled training and development opportunities. This has resulted in a more diverse workforce than the national construction average and one where 1:14 employees are apprentices or graduate trainees. Keltbray is also a responsible corporate citizen that provides training for more than 350 long-term unemployed every year.

The award was presented to Keltbray Managing Director, John Price, who said: “We at Keltbray are delighted to have won this prestigious award on the back of our development as a specialist business over the past four decades. We see it as a great recognition of the work our fantastic team of people does to ensure we deliver quality work for our clients in a safe and efficient manner, with care for our communities and the environment.”

Keltbray was also shortlisted for Construction News Specialist Awards in the Project of the Year (subcontract over £2m) category for its work at One Angel Court where the company has been contracted by Stanhope / Mitsui Fudosan to carry out asbestos management, demolition, temporary works and pile enabling in preparation for a mixed-use scheme of prime office and retail space, including a 21-storey office tower.
