Seymour Civil Engineering dominates industry awards

Seymour Civil Engineering has made it down to the final in seven out of 14 categories, totalling 9 shortlistings at the Construction Excellence North East (CENE) Awards 2018.


The firm, which this year celebrates its 40th year anniversary, has been shortlisted for the People Development award, the Health, Safety and Wellbeing award, and for SME of the Year, amongst others.


Kevin Byrne, Managing Director at Seymour Civil Engineering, said: “It really is a testament to the hard work that we have collectively undertaken and the diverse range of pioneering projects that we have been working on during the last 12 months across all areas of the business.


“This year we have grown and improved in every single department from our apprentices and training programmes to our brilliant team on the ground carrying out work across all our sites, and I’m incredibly happy that this has been recognised by the CENE body.”


In the wake of the company developing and launching its own digital training portal, Seymour has been shortlisted for the Innovation award. For its work on the Hartlepool Town Wall project, completed in partnership with Hartlepool Borough Council, the company has also been shortlisted for the Preservation and Rejuvenation award.


Seymour are incredibly proud to have two projects shortlisted in both the Integration & Collaborative Working Award and The Civils Project of the Year categories, which include the already multiple award winning Hartlepool Headland Town Wall project and the Whitley Bay Northern Promenade Walk, completed in partnership with Kier North Tyneside.


The annual ceremony, which celebrates everything that the North East Built Environment has to be proud of, will be held at the Marriott in Gosforth, on the 14th June.


At the 2017 event Seymour was awarded highly commended in the Project of the Year category, for the Brunton Park flood alleviation scheme, which was completed in partnership with Northumbrian Water and the Environment Agency.


Kevin added: “The past 12 months have been fantastic for Seymour Civil Engineering. We have started work on a number of really exciting, wide ranging projects across a number of industries for public and private clients located right across the North East – further cementing our position as a leading independent civil engineering firm in the region.”


Over the past 12 months, Seymour has won a number of other prestigious awards in recognition of its hard work within the trade. Last year Seymour won four awards at the North East Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) awards.


Sweeping the board, Seymour was named Health and Safety Company of the Year and Training Company of the Year, as well as taking home the Project of the Year and the ‘Going the Extra Mile’ awards, both for the work they carried out on the Hartlepool Town Wall project in partnership with Hartlepool Borough Council.
