Bouygues wins construction industry ‘Oscar’

Bouygues UK, the Triangle’s main contractors, have won an award for the consideration they have shown to the local community at the ‘Oscars’ of the local design and construction industry.

The award was made by the City Council’s Considerate Constructors scheme for works in progress that had made ‘significant efforts to minimise noise and disruption on building projects in the city’. Project Director Neil Pixsley collected the award at a ceremony at St Catharine’s College in Cambridge. The award was part of the Cambridge Design and Construction Awards, which are sponsored by the Cambridge Forum for the Construction Industry (CFCI), Cambridge City Council and the Cambridge News. The aim of the awards is to highlight the best new buildings, large and small, and the best conservation, alteration or extension of an existing building.

Commenting at the event Cllr Kevin Blencowe, executive councillor for planning policy and transport for Cambridge City Council, said,

“I would like to congratulate all the winners this year, who stood out in a period when a significant amount of development is taking place in Cambridge.”
