Engineering expert Peter Crosland, from global consultancy WYG, is launching this year’s Yorkshire & Humber Construction Best Practice Awards at an event in Harrogate on Friday 10 June 2011.
Organised by Construction Best Practice Club, the event not only officially launches the opening of the awards, but also provides the opportunity for organisations to gain valuable knowledge to better prepare a winning entry across the 12 award categories.
WYG’s regional director and regional chairman of Yorkshire & Humber Construction Best Practice Club, Peter Crosland, will be giving a short presentation on the day followed by a discussion with a representative from the organisation charged with driving the change agenda in construction, Constructing Excellence, on what makes a national winning submission.
Peter has over 30 years experience in the engineering and construction industry and has worked on dozens of major regeneration projects in the region. He said: “This is the fifth Yorkshire & Humber Construction Best Practice Awards and each year the entries get stronger. The awards include two new categories this year and we are hoping for a record number of applications which hopefully will show off the fantastic skills we have here in Yorkshire & the Humber.
“Friday’s event will be of great interest to those who are thinking of entering the awards.”
Held at RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate, guests will receive a presentation from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), including Eco Arc Architects, consultants Giffords and main contractor William Birch, on the new Bramall Learning Centre which won last year’s sustainability award.
The awards ceremony will take place at the Queens Hotel on 23 September 2011.
