We were thrilled to see several projects that we have helped deliver win prestigious awards at this year’s Constructing Excellence Wales Awards, which took place last month at the Celtic Manor Hotel in Newport. It is fantastic to see these projects recognised on such a grand scale and to showcase them as the very best of Wales’ built environment sector. We’re truly proud to have worked on these award winning schemes.
The outstanding Merthyr Tydfil Bus Interchange won Building Project of the Year, which deservedly recognises it as a local landmark that all parties are incredibly proud of and inspired by. The site is completely electrified with no fossil fuel requirements and provides electric charging for taxis, future provision of electric bus charging and a rainwater harvesting tank for public toilets. F P Hurley were proud to deliver the mechanical services for this exemplar project which has picked up a string of awards for sustainability and planning excellence in recent months.
The ceremony, which was witnessed by over 500 construction professionals, also recognised a key client of ours– South Wales Police, who won Client of the Year. F P Hurley has enjoyed a long standing relationship with South Wales Police, delivering a large number of projects for them in the past decade including the recent Police Learning Centre in Bridgend.
We were also delighted to see Cardiff University’s Centre for Student Life claim the Health, Safety and Wellbeing Award, a richly deserved award for the high standards and the culture of ‘safety first’ achieved on the project. F P Hurley worked alongside BAM Construction to deliver the mechanical services for the University’s flagship building which is transforming the student learning and welfare experience.
The ground-breaking Bay Technology Centre in Swansea also won the Net Zero Award. F P Hurley worked with Morgan Sindall on this project to deliver the mechanical services for this energy positive building. The Net Zero award pays testament to the innovative solutions used to produce a building that creates more energy than it uses, making it one of only a few net-positive buildings in the region.
