A PROJECT manager for Doncaster-based Keepmoat subsidiary Frank Haslam Milan has won a hat-trick of health and safety awards.

Gary Williams received a commended and highly commended award in the multi-storey category of the National House-Building Council’s Health and Safety Awards before being crowned regional winner for his work on a development close to Hull city centre, which posed a number of challenges.

Having once been the site of a Roman community, the site was bombed extensively by the Germans during the Second World War, before being redeveloped as an engineering works, which had to be demolished to make way for the construction of a new hostel.

As a result, Gary had to incorporate a programme of excavation by a bomb disposal team into the development schedule and cater for archaeologists who wanted to search for Roman artifacts.

Development manager Andrew Williamson said: “This has been a complex build, with many additional factors to take into consideration.

“Gary has met all of these challenges in a professional manner and ensured the highest levels of health and safety on site. As a result the build programme is on schedule and the first residents are due to move in this summer.”
