New Warehouse is an Award Winner

Our new state-of-the-art steel store, which opened in February 2015, has been awarded Best Large Commercial Building in the Northern heats of the LABC Building Excellence Awards.AwardThe warehouse supports both the Steel and Automotive industries in the North East by providing an ideal base for steel components to be transported and stored in a heat and humidity controlled environment, ready for just in time delivery to the factory.

The LABC Building Excellence Awards look for vital elements in the creation of excellent buildings such as technical innovation, sustainability and performance in addition to special working relationships that produce new or creative solutions.

The competition judges said the AV Dawson Limited warehouse is “an excellent project all round, with a site manager present for key inspections and good monitoring of the sub-contractors. The project shows a high level of sensitivity to the local environment from remediating brownfield land which had been vacant for 50 years through to the being the first example of a building of this scale which includes ground source heat pumps, P.V. and intelligent lighting.”

Gary Dawson, Managing Director of AV Dawson said, “This award is a well-deserved accolade to all the people and companies who were involved in the creation of this warehouse. This building was a real combination of efforts between our local council, suppliers, our own site services team and our customer TATA Steel to ensure we were building something truly great and unique to this region – and this award has demonstrated our achievement of this goal”

The next stage of the competition will see the warehouse entered into the LABC Grand Finals, which will take place in London, where winners from all 12 regions will compete for the national title.
