A E Yates Ltd. are proud to support CECA North West at the annual awards dinner 2023! Our team had a fantastic evening at the Midland Hotel where the event was hosted. Our team were proud to accept three awards and a highly commended certificate.
🏆 Lifetime achievement award: Congratulations Paul Boron, our recently retired CEO, for this well-deserved accolade
”It is impossible to work somebody for 46 years unless you’ve got some great people around you, this award is for them as much as it is for me.”
🏆 Social value award: ‘Tom’s Big Build:
Tom is a young boy from Bolton who was born with cerebral palsy, cortical visual impairment alongside chronic lung disease, meaning a wheelchair access to the house was required along with a carparking bay big enough get Tom in and out the car safely.
Before A E Yates got involved, another building contractor couldn’t finish the work and Tom’s family had been under lots of stress due to Tom having to be carried in and out the home.
We were pleased to announce that between us at AE Yates and our trusted suppliers, we managed to give wheelchair access to Tom’s home at zero cost. Tom and his family have expressed gratitude and have even stayed in contact with our team since the project finished!
🏆 Project of the year over £5 million, Harthill Reservoir:
The reservoir was constructed more than 200 years and in December 2020 plans were announced to upgrade the reservoir by redesigning the overflow spillway to increase the resilience of the reservoir. Canal & River trust have invested £5 million into the upgrade and the programme of works to upgrade.
A E Yates have got involved to help the local community surrounding Harthill Reservoir:
Site Management at Harthill Reservoir led by AE Yates Works Manager Steve Young dug deep into their own pockets and in just over a week managed to donate £500 worth of food to New Hope Food Bank Based in Killamarsh in December 2022.
When sluice gates at a reservoir were opened without permission, a number of fish died as a result. A E Yates helped with the fish clean up, where we managed to save some of them. A E Yates also donated 150 Heras fence panels to Harthill Carnival.
⭐ Project of the year up to £1 million (Highly commended) Barrow Bridge Retaining Wall
