Local Scaffolders Ascend Great Heights

Admiral shortlisted in specialists awards

Wimbledon-based Admiral Scaffolding Group have been shortlisted in this year's Construction News specialists awards.

Now in their 10th year, the awards create a platform for sub contractors in recognising their specialisms and claiming some of the limelight usually bestowed on main contractors.

Admiral, based in Weir Road, have been recognised for their diverse specialism in large scale construction projects as well as scaffolding for access and unusual projects.

Laura Withers, Admiral's Sales and Marketing Manager, said: "It’s great to be acknowledged in this way.

"Since the recession, we have put even more effort into diversification and ensuring our operatives are trained to the very highest standards to meet the requirements of our traditional construction business and the unusual projects that are emerging from our new Special Projects Division, like the internal access tower we built at Top Shop Oxford Circus for mannequin display. The people skills and technical skill needed to do this were completely different from building a temporary roof on the Four Seasons hotel in Mayfair or providing scaffolding for major multi-million pound new-build projects.

The award ceremony takes place on March 22 at the Hilton Hotel in Park Lane.
