Leading Scottish construction company, City Building, has beaten off tough competition from companies across the UK to win a national award for gas safety.
City Building scooped two accolades at the recent Association of Gas Safety Managers (AGSM) awards in association with CORGI, the official gas registration body for the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Guernsey.
The company took home the coveted National Social Housing Contractor of the Year award after beating seven other regions to win the Regional Social Housing Contractors of the Year award.
AGSM is a membership organisation which aims to provide a single voice for gas safety in the industry and drive best practice. The awards, which took place on 28 April at Heythrop Park in Oxon, recognise initiatives and personal successes and aims to celebrate the achievements of gas managers and directors in social housing as well as the contractors working with them and suppliers to the industry.
Claire Heyes, AGSM CEO said: “The ‘National Social Housing Contractors of the Year’ Award recognises the important role that contractors play in keeping tenants safe and happy with the service they receive.
“This Award rewards and recognises outstanding service and contribution of City Building to managing gas safety. They were winners of the Scottish Contractor and the overall National Social Housing Contractor.”
Graham Paterson, Executive Director of City Building added: “Winning two awards at this industry leading event is an important recognition for our organisation and helps demonstrate that we are leading the way in ensuring safe practices in gas services. This is especially significant as it places as at the top not just in Scotland but in the UK which will act as a great boost to the entire team.”
Councillor Maureen Burke, Chair of City Building, said: “Gas safety is such an important aspect of what City Building does and it’s great to see them recognised at a national level for their efforts.
“Congratulations should be given to everyone in the organisation for their continued hard work and in securing these prestigious accolades.”
