Yorkshire based Harris Construction Management (HCM) has been shortlisted for two prestigious awards by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
The ‘Committed to Construction in West Yorkshire Awards’ have been designed to showcase the professionalism, excellence and innovation demonstrated by the construction community in West Yorkshire. HCM has been shortlisted in the ‘Committed to Collaborative Working’ and ‘Committed to Excellence & Quality’ categories. The winners will be announced at an award ceremony in Leeds on the 8th March.
Jason Adlam, Chief Executive of HCM, said:
We have been recognised for our collaborative working approach which has seen us dramatically reduce costs year on year for clients including Asda, Arla Foods, Coca Cola, PepsiCo UK, Goodman Restaurants, Burger& Lobster and Nando’s.
By focussing on the companies’ real requirements we have been able to deliver more than £90 million worth of projects on time, within budget and to exacting standards over the last five years.
Our management team works seamlessly with those of our clients, with several staff fully integrated into their businesses. By producing and managing long term capital, revenue and expenditure plans our collaborative approach allows us all to plan resources efficiently and continually provide cost savings.
The firm has also been recognised for its commitment to excellence and quality by the CIOB.
We are genuinely thrilled to have been short-listed in two categories and it’s a real boost to the team to have our work recognised in this way. We are prepared to do everything it takes to get under the skin of our client’s businesses to find quality solutions, provide innovative ideas and work to the very highest of standards.
“We always go that extra step to ensure we understand their business; in fact one of our key account managers is currently working with Walmart in America learning about new construction methods for Asda. It’s another example of our collaborative approach that will allow best practise to be shared and ultimately deliver an even better service to our clients.”
HCM is predicting that turnover could grow by £10m over the next 12 months following a string of contract wins across its three divisions HCM projects, HCM interiors and HCM facilities.
The company has also taken on several new apprentices in order to train up and deliver the next generation of a highly skilled workforce and help to support existing staff with the increase in business. The firm recently got on board with the ‘five, three, one’ campaign – a business investment programme run by local Government to encourage investment in skills and help drive the economy.
Earlier this year HCM relocated to a 7,000 square foot office suite at South Elmsall. The company was founded at the end of 2007 and currently has a £20 million turnover and employs a team of 25.
