Pave Aways builds for success with team awards

We have signed off a successful 2018 by handing out a string of accolades to our staff in recognition of their achievements during the year and handing over an amazing £10,000 to our charity partner, the Midlands Air Ambulance.

We made four special awards recognising our top performers at our annual staff Christmas party.

The Apprentice of the Year award went to trainee setting out engineer Jack Mitchell while Employee of the Year was named as company buyer Rob Keyland.

Dave Garratt, contracts manager and quantity surveyor, scooped the title of Colleague of the Year that was voted for by staff.


The Neil Holding Award, which is given in memory of our former Quality Manager who died after a battle with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, was presented to Shawn Humphreys, construction quality manager. It recognises an employee who goes above and beyond in their role and was chosen by the firm’s directors.

We have been fundraising throughout the year for the Air Ambulance. Staff carried out a number of charity events including the three-day Shropshire Safari sponsored walk across the county in animal fancy dress costumes.


Managing Director Steven Owen said: “We know our team is the secret of our success and the annual party and awards give us the opportunity to celebrate their achievements.

“Not only do they work hard to deliver some amazing builds across the region, they play hard and raised a staggering amount for a brilliant cause.

“The Air Ambulance is a vital service for a rural county like ours. We work on sites all over Shropshire and the Midlands and often see it flying overhead so we know how much it is needed.”
