CAT3 Job of the Year Award!

After another fantastic Heavies Awards night, our Team returned home with the Job of the Year CAT 3 Award!

Chris Baker Receives the Collett Heavies Job of the Year Award

We had a fantastic night at this years awards and we're delighted to return home with another addition to our awards cabinet! 

The Heavies awarded our recent project, delivering thirteen trusses into the centre of London to the Leicester Square Hotel construction site, as the winner in the Job of the Year CAT 3 Category!  Over a seven day period our Team delivered thirteen cargoes directly to the construction site in the heart of the capital. A challenging project given the rapidly changeable climate of Central London, our Teams continued with professionalism carrying out the project to the highest standards whilst dealing with the volumes of West End London traffic in an incredibly busy location.

Stepping forward to collect the award our Heavy Transport & Project's Division's Chris Baker, who was responsible for the project, took to the stage to collect the accolade as a very worthy winner! In the words of the Heavies: "The winner captured the Judges’ hearts because it had everything: distance, time constraints and a very challenging and high-profile delivery destination."

In the Judge’s words: "A very good submission and a fantastic job with incredible challenges. I happened to be in the West End on one of the nights they were delivering, and came out of a theatre just as one of the loads reversed past me down an extraordinarily narrow street. It was like threading a needle – very little clearance, and surrounded by historic buildings and street furniture (not to mention onlookers). A thoroughly professional job."

A fantastic evening was had by all and we're all ready counting down to the next event!
