Galliford Try has claimed three awards at this year’s Constructing Excellence Midlands Awards, winning Innovation Project of the Year, the Collaboration and Integration Award and Civils Project of the Year, as well as a Highly Commended in the Building Project of the Year.

Earning Innovation Project of the Year was our Environment business’ Project Vinnie for predictive analysis in Health & Safety at the forefront of data intelligence and technology.

Project Vinnie uses Artificial Intelligence to deliver unbiased insights from largely unstructured data to predict and reduce accidents and incidents, while providing an innovative approach to risk management and supply chain performance management. Project data, incident reports, staff levels, safety observations and even weather data can all be used by Vinnie to identify indicators of risk, earning praise from judges in this coveted category.

The Environment business also received the Civils Project of the Year award for its outstanding work on Severn Trent’s Eels Regulation Compliance project, providing best practice environmental benefits for both the client, as well as the Environment Agency, through excellent project delivery, bringing out the very best in terms of collaboration and stakeholder management. 

Top for the Collaboration and Integration Award and Highly Commended in the Building Project of the Year category was Galliford Try Building’s Broadmarsh Car Park project which delivered a new multi-storey car park, retail units and bus station on the south side of Nottingham city, as well as a new central public library and other public realm works. The project team including Nottingham City Council, Faithful + Gould, Pick Everard, Leonard Design Architects, Stephen George & Partners, BWB was recognition for driving positive change in construction through collaborative working.

Bill Hocking Chief Executive of Galliford Try, said: “Creating innovative solutions that drive safe and sustainable behaviours is a key part of our Sustainable Growth Strategy, so I am delighted that we have received such great recognition for our use of emerging technologies.
