The winners of the Construction Excellence Awards 2014 were announced in Belfast on 3rdOctober 2014. Guest of Honour, Minister for Employment and Learning, Stephen Farry, revealed Laganwater as the winner of the Overall Award for the Clay Lake Water Treatment Works in Keady, County Armagh.
The water infrastructure project, which also won the Utilities Infrastructure Award, emerged as the ultimate winner for 2014 against stiff competition from the other 14 category winners including the Redevelopment of Ravenhill Stadium by Gilbert-Ash and the new Antrim Area Hospital Emergency Department by Farrans Construction.
“We turn on our taps and out comes high quality clean drinking water – we take that for granted, but of course it is millions of pounds of investment in infrastructure that makes that possible. The Clay Lake Water Treatment Works is the sort of project that is often invisible to the public and I think it is a testament to the outstanding work of Laganwater that this vitally important part of our local construction industry has been brought into the spotlight.”John Armstrong, Managing Director of the Construction Employers Federation (CEF)
Laganwater are absolutely thrilled to not only win the Utilities Infrastructure award but also win the overall award on the evening.
