The scaffolding industry body, National Access and Scaffolding Confederation hosted their annual awards, recognising excellence in people, safety and innovation in our industry.
For the second year running, we received the Health & Safety Award for companies employing over 66 people. The Award recognises our commitment to culture change and innovation in driving continuous improvement. Judges acknowledged our Share, Learn, Improve reporting process as well as our BetterFuture Wellbeing and Mental Health programme.
Additionally we were awarded Project of the Year for Battersea Power Station. GKR has managed the External Scaffold Package for Europe’s largest construction project. It required us to create a new business unit to manage the works as well as some of the most complex engineering behind the hanging scaffolds on the wash towers.
This year’s project win comes after being Highly Commended the previous year for our work on Wimbledon Court One.
