We have won another accolade in Barnsley, this time winning Collaboration of the Year at the National Federation of Builders Awards for our work refurbishing Barnsley Markets.
The award recognises our seamless collaborative working alongside Barnsley Council throughout the project. We were commended by the NFB who said: “Creativity, excellent risk management and exemplary collaborative working saw 100 market stalls continue trading throughout.”
Ryan O’Loughlin, Project Director at Henry Boot, said: “The team have demonstrated that major projects can be successfully delivered through a partnering arrangement. Co-location played a major part as issues could be resolved quickly with openness and trust on a fast-moving project. We look forward to continuing the partnership throughout 2019.”
We’re delighted that Henry Boot has won this prestigious award – it’s testament to its staff’s ongoing commitment and hard work through the first phase of the regeneration of the town centre. We worked hard as a council alongside Henry Boot to ensure market traders could carry on trading through the refurbishment of the Metropolitan Centre, and the town is now reaping the rewards with our fantastic new market which opened last year.

The NFB Awards celebrate outstanding contributions made to the built environment. The awards evening at The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield also saw further success for our work on The Beacon, an innovative international standard sports hall for the University of Hull. In a tough category, the project received a Highly Commended certificate for New Build of the Year.
