Glasgow, Scotland (PRWEB) September 8, 2008
Core Utility Solutions, one of the UK's leading multi utility infrastructure companies, is celebrating after being named as Most Improved Contractor 2008 by West Lothian Council. Core won the award as part of the council's Considerate Contractors Scheme.
The programme is designed to promote roadworks excellence and reduce inconvenience and frustration to road users and pedestrians during the installation of new gas, electricity, water and telecoms connections.
The award is testament to the hard work Core has put in over the past year to ensure that and gas, water and electricity connections as well as new telecoms supplies cause as little interruption on roads and streets as possible. The company has worked with the Council's Road Services department to consistently improve safety, value and service on its streetworks.
As part of the scheme, contractors are subject to inspections of roadworks sites throughout the county whilst carrying out gas, water and electricity utilities work. Results are reported on a monthly basis to ensure companies constantly adhere to a high standard of work. Instrumental in Core's win was its Broxburn team and engineering staff at the company's Tannochside base. Each have worked to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum and improve works on the public road network during the installation of utility supplies. The award was presented to Stuart Love and Keith Hogg from Core by Councillor Peter Johnston.
Peter Jones, UK Construction Director from Core said: "This is a fantastic achievement for Core. The award reflects our commitment to ensuring we are consistently building on our performance and achieving good results."
"Health and safety is of the utmost importance to Core, as is building on our reputation for delivering high quality gas, electricity, water and telecoms supplies."
