Once again, Mott MacDonald Bentley’s approach to supporting the community has been recognised by Yorkshire Water at their annual Community Spirit Awards.
At the ceremony on 19 March, MMB was awarded the prestigious accolade of “Community Impact – Team Award” following the work our Spen Valley Project Team has done to support the local community and environment during the course of the pipeline contract.
MMB’s Community Relations Officer for the project, Andy Ball picked up the award at the ceremony held at Bradford’s Aagrah Restaurant.
General Manager, Ian Whitehead said “We’re delighted to have won this award. It shows that MMB’s efforts in the local community have been recognised by our client and Andy deserves credit for all the work he’s done to build and maintain strong relationships during what has been an extremely sensitive project in the local community.”
As further testament to their success, the team has also received a “Performance Beyond Compliance” certificate from the Considerate Constructors Scheme following an assessment score of 4.5 out of 5 in each of their eight categories. Unfortunately the team narrowly missed out on being shortlisted for one of their national awards by just half a mark following two assessments.
