Coleman & Company Rides High at World Demolition Summit 2011 in Amsterdam
Demolition specialists Coleman & Company win two awards at The World Demolition Summit 2011 in Amsterdam on Friday 4th November 2011.
Coleman & Company received the Summit’s most prestigious award, “Contract of the Year”, for their work on Phase 1 of Birmingham’s New Street Railway Station. Coleman & Company also won the “Civil’s Demolition” award for their work on the A404 Railway Bridge in Maidenhead, England.
Coleman & Company also received a ‘Special Commendation” for the Explosive Demolition Award for their work at Octavia Court, Greenock, Scotland.
The judging panel comprised of the industry’s most respected experts. Shortlisted projects were completed in the UK, Continental Europe, North and South America.
Mark Coleman, Managing Director of Coleman & Company notes “I’m delighted to receive these awards. It’s nice when our team receives recognition for their hard work at such a high profile event. The incredibly complex nature of all three projects highlights how our business has changed and thrived during challenging economic conditions as we move towards our 50th year of trading in 2012.”
Commenting on the award, Network Rail Project Director Chris Montgomery said: “The job at New Street was an extremely complex engineering challenge and one that Coleman’s rose to with some innovative Birmingham engineering. We’re now focusing on turning the huge space created into the new station concourse which will open to passengers at the end of 2012.”
Lindsay Gale, Editor of Demolition and Recycling International notes “The jurors were looking for the extra ordinary and that is what Coleman & Company provided by making Birmingham New Street Station, a very complicated job, look straight forward.”
