THE Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has honoured Yorkshire-based Harris Construction Management (HCM) with a prestigious award at this year’s “Committed to Construction in West Yorkshire” ceremony.
The firm took first place in the ‘Committed to Excellence & Quality’ category and was one of just three companies to be short-listed in the ‘Committed to Collaborative Working’ category. The awards have been designed to showcase the professionalism, excellence and innovation demonstrated by the construction community in West Yorkshire and were held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds.
Jason Adlam, Chief Executive of HCM, said:
We are delighted to have been recognised in this way. We have dramatically helped 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. 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.
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.
