POLLARD SHORTLISTED FOR BUILDING SAFETY GROUP HEALTH & SAFETY AWARDS 2017
Pollard’s commitment to health and safety excellence has been recognised by two nominations at the 3rd Annual BSG Health & Safety Awards.
Both nominations – for Project Award for best Health & Safety in Planning and Design and for Site Manager of the Year – are for their performance on Street Business Park, a retail development for Canynge Bicknell. The £4.2m design build scheme, completed to budget and programme, involved the construction of two retail shells of 3350m2 together with car parking and a new sub station. Careful attention to health and safety planning was paramount given the shared access road to the development used by existing retail operators of the park including a Sainsbury supermarket.
Chris Wheeler, Pollard’s Health & Safety Manager said
“These nominations reflect our culture and approach to health and safety within our company and we are thrilled that our efforts have been recognised. Particular mention must go to our Site Manager, John Venner, whose diligence and insistence of the highest standards has been rewarded. He is a worthy recipient of this nomination.”
The award’s ceremony is being held at the Williams Formula One Conference Centre on Wednesday 18 October.
