Lucas named Specialist Contractor of the Year by Construction News

Lucas has been crowned Specialist Contractor of the Year (turnover under £100 million) at the Construction News Awards 2017 held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

A panel of expert industry judges described our Executive Chairman and Managing Director, Danny Lucas, as “inspirational” and said Lucas “has taken an impressive approach to training and shows a progressive approach to business, not just within its specialist sector but across the industry as a whole.”

The judges were impressed with the breadth of work carried out by Lucas, highlighting the lengths we go to on many projects such as the Sky Central building on BSkyB’s Osterley Campus when the Lucas team worked through the night to allow other trades to complete their packages and ensure the project finished on time.

They were also impressed by our adoption of new technologies across our operations which allow us to deliver ever higher levels of service, and by the 12 years average length of service of Lucas employees demonstrating the positive working culture in the company.

The Construction News Awards marked its 21st year and brought together 1,100 of the UK’s leading clients and contractors for a glittering evening of celebration and recognition. Tom Fitzpatrick, editor of Construction News said: “These awards recognise the brilliant contribution to society that this industry makes on a daily basis. From homes to schools and hospitals, to rail and roads and stadiums, we are proud to recognise the achievements of the companies working hard to improve the construction industry and help grow the UK economy.”

Danny Lucas said: “I am delighted that Lucas has won this prestigious award. We’ve gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years, from winning major signature projects from the industry’s biggest contractors, to our Living Well Alliance partnership with the British Lung Foundation in recognition of one our latest products, Lucas Breathe. This is just the cherry on top of the cake.”

“I’d like to congratulate my wonderful team, for all this wouldn’t be possible without their dedication and hard work”.
