2012 Construction Excellence Award
For the second successive year Woodvale Construction has won the Restoration Category of the CEF Construction Excellence Awards 2012. The award for the contract at First Derry Presbyterian Church beat stiff competition from four other shortlisted finalists. The other finalists included Crumlin Road Goal, Riddel Hall and The Guildhall, Londonderry.
A delighted Robert Ewing commented “The winning of this major award for the last two years has been well deserved recognitition for our Restoration Division. The efforts of all associated with the Restoration of First Derry Presbyterian Church have been recognised and now this iconic building will sit proudly on Derry’s walls to be enjoyed by both congregation and visitors for generations to come. The restricted nature of the site and precarious state of the building prior to commencement added to what was already a very challenging project. As with any major restoration project unforeseen difficulties arose during the construction phase. However the professional approach and attention to detail of a very experienced Woodvale team led to the completion of a successful project. One of which we are rightly proud.”
