SES Engineering Services’ Yorkshire Team Shortlisted for Award
SES Engineering Services, which has a major regional HQ in York, has been selected as a finalist in the Specialist Contractor of the Year and BIM Excellence categories of the 2016 Construction News Awards, making the shortlist from among a record number of entrants.
Before the awards, leading national engineering specialist SES will join all finalists to attend face-to-face judging by members of the 61-strong jury, made up of the most influential clients and experts in the UK.
This year the judging line-up includes some of the country’s top clients, including:
Ian Ballentine, executive procurement director, Heathrow Munish Datta, head of plan A and FM, Marks and Spencer Louise Ellison, head of sustainability, Hammerson Simon Kirby, chief executive, HS2 Flan McNamara, construction director, Sellar Property Group Jim O’Sullivan, chief executive, Highways England
This year the Construction News Awards are celebrating their 20th anniversary and 20 years of celebrating the very best contractors in the UK.
SES Managing Director, Mark Perkins said: “We’re extremely proud to have been shortlisted in two prestigious award categories, beating off competition from so many prolific entrants.
“The news comes hot on the heels of our BRE BIM Level 2 Business Certification last month, which was a major milestone for the business as the first Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health Services contractor (MEP) in the UK to achieve this.
“Our office in York has been integral to us achieving the high standards required for this recognition and the team has worked hard on a number of complex M&E projects across the region which have been showcased to the judging panel. We’ve all got our fingers crossed for the results in July this year.”
Construction News’ editor Rebecca Evans commented:
“This year’s Construction News finalists are at the leading edge of UK construction, setting the standards for the whole industry to follow and ensuring their businesses are innovating for the future.
“I look forward to meeting the finalists at the face to face judging and hearing about their inspirational work.”
The winners will be announced on 14 July 2016 at a ceremony in the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, where over 1,300 of the industry’s elite will join together for a night of entertainment, celebration and networking.
