Jeakins Weir has recently won two major industry awards.
It was presented with a Bronze Award at the 2016 Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Awards in Manchester for its extensive remodelling work on Loughborough Council offices for Charnwood Borough Council.
The second award is the NEC Small Contract of the Year Award 2016 which Jeakins Weir was presented (with Pick Everard) at a ceremony at the Institute of Civil Engineering in London, for a building and refurbishment project it completed for two schools in Corby – Beanfield and Gretton Primary Schools.
Both projects were procured through the empa (East Midlands Property Alliance) Construction Framework.
Commenting on receiving the two awards, Jeakins Weir Managing Director, Alistair Weir, said:
“We are delighted to be recognised as one of the UK’s top performing companies at the 2016 National Site Awards and also to win a second straight NEC award for Small Contract of the Year. National awards like these recognise excellence, dedication and teamwork, and it’s a real boost to all our staff to receive such accolades, particularly from our industry peers.”
The Considerate Constructors Bronze National Site Award 2016 was presented to Jeakins Weir Contracts Manager James Banaszak and Site Manager Tom Coady.
The new look Loughborough Council offices opened in February 2016 following completion of the £700,000 project. Jeakins Weir built an extension to the front of the office and refurbished and made alterations to the existing offices. The offices had to remain fully operational whilst the refurbishment was happening.

The 2016 NEC Awards particularly focused on ‘collaborative working’. Jeakins Weir Contracts Manager Andy Rich and Quantity Surveyor Phil Bluck were present when the winners were announced. Last year Jeakins Weir and Pick Everard won the same award for Rushden Splash Pool in Northamptonshire.
Jeakins Weir’s work at Beanfield Primary School involved the refurbishment of a prefabricated classroom and toilet block, as well as converting an existing classroom into a fully fitted commercial kitchen. At Gretton Primary School Jeakins Weir relocated the creative studio to a smaller classroom to allow for a year six class to make use of a room of suitable size for their class numbers. It also replaced damaged suspended ceiling tiles in a classroom and re-roofed an external storage facility.
