Decarbonisation projects lead to awards success for Warden

Warden’s work on two decarbonisation and net zero projects has been recognised at some of the construction sector’s leading business awards for sustainability.

Our project on behalf of Manchester City Council to create new solar car ports at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester won in the low value project category at the North West Construction Hub Awards.

The project was also highly commended in the Large Project of the Year category at the North West Energy Efficiency Awards on February 15.

Meanwhile, our work with Greater Manchester Combined Authority to improve the energy efficiency of a number of its key buildings was named Gold Winner in the Energy Saving category at the recent Green Apple Awards.

Susie Harrison-Serella, business development manager at Warden, said: “We’re working on a growing number of decarbonisation projects as the journey towards carbon net zero gathers pace. It’s an area where we have built a real specialism.

“These projects require true partnership working to make them a success and we’re absolutely thrilled this collaborative approach has been recognised by these leading industry awards.”

Warden’s work with GMCA involved the installation of solar photovoltaic panels at Ashton-Under-Lyne Fire Station, Bury Fire Station, Greater Manchester Police Headquarters, Greater Manchester Police North Manchester Divisional Headquarters, and Greater Manchester Police Openshaw SOCH Building.

Meanwhile, our project at the National Cycling Centre saw us construct new solar car ports within two car parking areas. These car ports provide shelter for parked vehicles while generating renewable energy for use on site or for the charging of electric vehicles. The project was delivered as part of a wider programme of renewable energy projects across Greater Manchester funded by European Regional Development Fund.
