O’Brien Contractors, a Leamington-based specialist civil engineering firm, has won two more awards in a year that has already seen the company, and its managing director, Peter O’Brien, win several.
At the Building and Engineering 2013 awards O’Briens was named as Contractor of the Year (SME) for the impressive improvements it has made in every area of the business. These improvements include diversifying into new service areas, such as sports, plant hire, sewerage and full design and build services.
At the same time, O’Briens has invested over £900,000 in new state-of-the-art software and plant and machinery and cut both its accident incidence and frequency rates.
Peter O’Brien said: “We are thrilled to have won this latest award that recognises how much we have done to turn the business around after the global recession. It’s also very important to us that we are the best employer for our staff and make a positive impact on the communities where we deliver projects.”
This commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility has been recognised by the CSR Excellence Award which, in addition to awarding O’Brien’s a Silver International CSR Excellence Award in the Building & Construction Category for 2013, has just added the CSR World Leader 2014 award to their accolades.
