Judges’ comment:

An innovative, sustainable scheme which focused on key performance indicators. This scheme made great cost savings.

What the winners had to say…

It’s fantastic, absolutely amazing. We’ve waited so long to get this Award – three years of work and we finally got there.

I think it’s pretty innovative because we didn’t just look at a first tier, we looked at the whole supply chain… Actually seeing the whole supply chain as equal rather than just the old client/contractor relationship and that makes quite a difference particularly, currently when money has been tight.

It’s been a tough year with the floods last winter. I think this year has really brought the team together and I think [winning this Award] will really motivate the team for the next six months and beyond. So it will make a really big difference.
