Wynne Construction has visited the Welsh Government’s headquarters to celebrate a prestigious industry award win.
Constructing Excellence Wales (CEW) invited Wynne Construction to a winners’ reception at the Senedd after naming the contractor SME of the year (1-50 employees) at its annual awards, which celebrates Wales' construction sector.
And after its Welsh success, the Bodelwyddan-based firm went on to scoop best SME in the UK, beating nine other companies to the accolade at Constructing Excellence's (CE) UK-wide awards in London.
Chris Wynne, managing director, and Alison Hourihane, business and community development manager, exhibited at the event along with other CEW award winners.
They heard from speakers Rhodri Gwynn Jones, chair of CEW, Milica Kitson, chief executive of CEW, and Lee Waters, assembly member for Llanelli.
Ed Evans, director of the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) Wales, and Matthew Jones, chair of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Wales Cymru, also addressed delegates.
And the award win is helping enhance Wynne Construction’s reputation as a leader in its field, says Chris.
He said: "Being named SME of the year at the UK awards goes to show how far we have come since starting up more than 90 years ago, and is helping attract new opportunities for growth. We have ambitious plans for 2019, and attending the reception served as a fantastic way to reflect on our achievements before moving forward to reach new goals."
Alison added: "We're pleased to have been invited to attend this event alongside other high achieving firms in our industry. It was a real honour to meet with like-minded business leaders, and have the opportunity to showcase our far-ranging capabilities.
"I’d like to thank CEW for organising the reception, which served as a fantastic way to support its 2018 award winners."
The celebration marked an end to a successful year for Wynne Construction, in which it also scooped a Local Authority Building Control (LABC) All Wales award for best small commercial project with its £2.6m build of RNLI Llandudno’s new lifeboat station.
