News: Bramall wins sustainability award


Rotherham social housing contractor, Bramall Construction has won the Sustainability Award at this year's Celebrating Construction in South Yorkshire Awards.

Promoted by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the awards aim to celebrate high quality work by all parts of the region's construction industry supply chain including developers, designers, builders and end-users, both large and small.

The awards demonstrated what can be achieved through strong partnerships and a clear vision with categories chosen to reflect the sensitive and diverse issues in today’s construction industry.

Bramall Construction received the Sustainability Award in recognition of its work on a pilot "retrofit" project on six post-war terraced council properties in Rotherham.

Through £150,000 of funding Bramall secured from the Technology Strategy Board, it carried out energy efficiency makeovers on the properties.

It is predicted that the technology and building methods used will reduce CO2 emissions by 80% across the six properties, whilst at the same time helping tenants to reduce their fuel bills and improve their standard of living.

Neil Baxter, managing director of Bramall Construction, said: "Retrofitting these properties, using funding that we unlocked, is testament to our commitment to the environment and best practice in green construction."

At the same event, repairs and maintenance service provider, Morrison won the Collaborative Working Award for its support of employment opportunities within Rotherham, in partnership with Access All Areas and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC).
