Celebrating our milestone year with award wins

We have marked a milestone in Pave Aways’ history – our upcoming 50th anniversary – with a number of award wins.

We have won a number of accolades at recent awards that celebrated construction excellence in the Midlands, Wales and Shropshire.

We first won SME of the Year at the Constructing Excellence Midlands awards where we were also highly commended in the People Development category.

At the Constructing Excellence Wales awards, we won Building Project of the Year for Hafan Yr Afon, a new visitor and community centre in Newtown in Powys.

Welshpool Church in Wales School, the first Passivhaus school Pave Aways built for Powys County Council, won the Value Award. The school also won Innovation in Delivering a Sustainable Education Facility in The Education Building Wales Awards for the architects, Architype.

We then went on to win Community Champion – Business in the Community at the Shropshire Chamber Business Awards.

Commercial director Victoria Lawson said the award wins were testament to the high standards that Pave Aways demands across every aspect of its business.

“It is very gratifying when schemes that we have been involved in win awards, especially the best building in Wales. This recognises that we’ve delivered the level of construction excellence we strive for,” she said.

“As a business, winning the SME of the Year, being highly commended for our commitment to our team and winning the award for giving back to the communities where we work, has been very important for us.

“Supporting our people and local communities are two of the pillars on which we’ve built the foundation of Pave Aways so to get this independent validation that we’re achieving this is incredible, especially as we head towards 50 years in business.”
