The Harry Fairclough Civil Engineering team recently attended the  Civil Engineering Contractors Association North West dinner event at the Midland Hotel Manchester and scooped not one but two prestigious awards! We were joined by over 300 other CECA members from across the region to celebrate and recognise the North West’s outstanding civil engineering projects and individuals.

It was a particularly proud moment for our team when our  (now retired) Safety Manager Brian Goodacre was awarded the  Lifetime Achievement Award for his service to Civil Engineering. Brian is a former CECA North West Chairman, and Vice Chairman of the Health & Safety Forum. We were delighted to congratulate Brian and share in his success and look forward to continuing to work with him as he moves into a consultancy role.

We also received the ‘Highly Commended’ award for projects up to £1 million for our Vicars Hall Bridge project for our longstanding client Bridgewater Canal Company, a complex upgrade project that involved working around the live canal environment.

Andy Longstaff, Pre-Construction Manager, Harry Fairlough Civils said: “Working with our longstanding client the Bridgewater Canal Company, a relationship that dates all the way back to when the Manchester Ship Canal was actually built is always a pleasure for our team. We are delighted that the Vicars Hall Bridge project has been recognised by CECA as industry leading and also to share in Brian’s success.”

CECA NW members work to build and maintain essential infrastructure and facilities in our region, delivering an estimated 70-80% of the £2 billion worth of civil engineering that is carried out in the North West each year.
