Building teams win accolade

Have your say

BUILDERS who maintain Barnsley’s council houses have received a national award.

Berneslai Homes Construction Services gained the Performance Beyond Compliance award for commitment to health and safety, tenants, employees and the environment during work on homes at Cudworth and Brierley.

The award was given by the Considerate Constructors Scheme, which aims to enhance the reputation of building companies for how they deal with the general public, workforces and environment.

Stephen Davis, Berneslai Homes director of assets, construction and regeneration, said: “I would like to congratulate Dave Whittam and John Lees who have managed the sites and to all staff involved who have contributed to these achievements.”
