A Coventry construction company has been shortlisted for an industry award for its work at a local school.
Deeley Construction, which is part of the Deeley Group, is a finalist in the Refurbishment Project of the Year award category at the NFB Awards 2018.
The company has been shortlisted for the £5.8 million project it completed on behalf of Warwick School on the former Guy Nelson Hall, which is now known as Warwick Hall.
The new hall has already played host to a range of events and performances and has proved to be a hit with staff, pupils and the local community.
Simon Jones, foundation secretary for Warwick Independent Schools Foundation, said: “Deeley Construction was courteous and flexible in their approach to minimise disruption to the school. We were impressed by Deeley’s willingness to host site visits for pupils, teachers and governors who were eager to view progress.
“The hands-on approach from all of the employees – from site managers to directors – gave a personal touch which all at Warwick School appreciated. The building provides a focal point for our school campus, helping to shape future plans, and we are grateful for such a wonderful building.”
Winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony taking place at The Belfry Hotel & Resort on Tuesday, March 27.
Martin Gallagher, managing director of Deeley Construction, said: “We are very pleased to be shortlisted for our work on Warwick Hall.
“It was a project that required a great deal of expertise and, also, strong communication between our team, the client and the community. We look forward to finding out if we’ve won in March.”
