Darren Ford wins CECA Site manager of the Year Award for the second year running. Darren Ford, now one of our contracts managers, was awarded the 2010 CECA Midlands ‘Site manager of the Year Award’ at the CECA Annual Dinner held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on 26th November. The award, for his submission on the Holte Road UID Scheme for Severn Trent Water, beat a number of high quality entries. The £1.65m scheme had a number of technical, traffic management and customer care challenges as well being constructed adjacent to Aston Villa football ground which required working 7 days a week for several weeks of the contract to complete work in the highways next to the ground and so ensure there would be no traffic or pedestrian disruption to the start of the 2009/10 football season.
