Congratulations to our team at Wandsworth who have been awarded a Health and Safety Award by Galliford Try.  

The Wandsworth Riverside Quarter project is a 13 storey tower of apartments and commercial units. The monthly award is based on a variety of criteria including complexity of works, number of operatives and Serious Safety Event Rate. They also selected a stand out operative for their particular focus on H&S – and B&F electrician Elvis Shadrawry was the lucky recipient! We’re not sure if he celebrated with a song though!

Well done everyone!
