Recognition for Aegis at APS Awards

Preston-based company Aegis had some success at the Association for Project Safety (APS) Annual Awards 2011.

The APS awards are unique, being the only ones of their kind dedicated to recognising excellence in health and safety risk management in the construction industry.

Aegis was shortlisted in all three awards categories. For their work on the Long Spars and Longerons Machining Facility at BAE Systems, Samlesbury, they were shortlisted in the Engineering Project of the Year category.

The company’s work on St Monica’s Vocational Centre in Bury gained them a shortlisting for both the Architectural Project of the Year award, together with a place on the shortlist for the CDM Co-ordinator of the Year award for Shaun Brennan, who worked on that project.

On the night Aegis was runner up in the Architectural category and gained a highly commended award in the Engineering category.

Aegis Technical Director, Tim Hudson, who was present at the event, commented:

“Overall this is a highly creditable performance given that Aegis was up against formidable competition in this specialist area, namely ABB, one of the world’s largest industrial conglomerates, and Halcrow, one of the UK’s top engineering consultancies.

“Nevertheless we are proud to have been in contention for these national awards which recognise the commitment, technical expertise and extensive safety knowledge of our team.”
