We have been nominated for the Sedgemoor Business Excellence Awards in 2022 and have reached the finalist stage.

This nomination is especially important to us as it demonstrates the dedication that we have to the industry, our customers and the community. It especially recognises our hard-working staff and sub-contractors who share a strong commitment to ensuring the business is a success.

Congratulations to all the finalists and we look forward to the awards evening later in the month.

We are very proud to announce that Constructs were also recognized by the Sedgemoor Business Excellence Awards in previous years and have been awarded the ‘Construction in Sedgemoor’ award for 2020 and again for 2021.

Constructs South West Ltd are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Construction in Sedgemoor award for the 2nd year running.

The Sedgemoor Business Excellence Awards are organised by the Bridgwater Chamber of Commerce and when nominations opened in the summer, we decided to enter again by submitting an entry, detailing our business structure and ethics and provided evidence for a project that we recently worked on in Bridgwater.

It was then in the hands of the judges, who announced the shortlist in October 2021. Finalists were invited to a celebration and awards evening earlier this month where all the award winners were announced.

We would like to congratulate all of the winners and finalists. The awards are a fantastic way to highlight the brilliant local businesses in the area, giving them some well deserved recognition.

A huge thank you must go to all our staff and sub-contractors for their hard work throughout a challenging year. Here’s to 2022!

Our works within Somerset has been a large factor to winning this award for two years running including the works we undertook for Willmott Dixon at Polden Bower School, Bridgwater.

Project: Polden Bower School

Main Contractor: Willmott Dixon

Address: Bower Lane, Bridgwater, Somerset, TA6 4GU

Constructs South West Ltd started working on this project in January 2020, then the Coronavirus pandemic struck. We were able to continue working under strict COVID-19 work safe protocols, set by ourselves and Willmott Dixon, the main contractor. We liaised closely with our suppliers in order to meet our supply deadlines, thus meaning we were able to keep to the programme completion date. This state-of-the-art school provides 160 school places for pupils ages 4 – 16 years with sensory and physical needs, along with support for parents and carers, and merges 2 existing schools in Bridgwater.

All sub-contractors who worked on this site live in the Sedgemoor area and, where possible, we sourced materials from local suppliers and joiners including Locks, Doors and Window Fittings, Electro South West and AG&R, who are all based in Bridgwater. The plywood and other materials for this project were provided by the Bridgwater branch of Bradfords Building Suppliers. Our proven supply chain also compliments our service by providing the best and most up to date advice and recommendations.

Works included:

  • 1st fix internal carpentry works, including studwork, window boards, door frames, and patressing
  • 2nd fix internal carpentry works, including fitting of skirting boards and architraves/li>
  • Installation of external bin stores/li>
  • Supplied and fitted bespoke joinery products/li>

It is vitally important to have the correct installation for fire doors. Our supervisors are trained in the recognised methods and are fully audited to ensure we install fire doors to the highest required standard.
