Paragon shortlisted for London Construction Awards 2016

Station House in Bracknell has been shortlisted for the London Construction Awards’ Health and Safety category. The joint entry was led by Paragon, principal contractor, and Castle Scaffolding.   Station House is a commercial-to-residential conversion of an empty, Network Rail-owned office building above Bracknell station that is being transformed into 96 new homes.   The site’s exceptionally challenging location – directly alongside a live platform and railway track – led to a unique and pioneering scaffolding concept developed with Castle Scaffolding. The result is an exemplar health and safety solution that has been praised for its ingenuity and will be rolled out on future projects.   The London Construction Awards recognise achievements by those that have played a defining role in delivering exceptional quality, innovation and service; and in driving the London construction industry forwards.   The awards welcome a number of high-level attendees from the sector to celebrate the successes of a wide range of companies across the capital.   For this year’s remodelled awards, the focus is very much on excellence on the ground and discovering the unsung heroes that consistently deliver outstanding projects, are constantly innovating and are leading the way to provide a safer working environment for all involved.   Winners will be announced at the ceremony on 26 October 2016.
