Steelway Win BSF “BEST SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT” Award
At the recent Interbuild Exhibition Steelway were awarded The Building Schools for the future “Best Sustainable product” award for their outdoor play solutions.
Steelway were chosen because their products contributed towards creating a sustainable community and supported local regeneration. Their continuous product development and commitment to life cycle costing eradicates the need to replace their products for at least 25 years therefore minimising disruption.
Another Key value of BSF is local employment and Steelway have focused on employing local people and offering apprenticeships and training schemes over the years. Steelway can proudly say we have a number of employees who have been with the company in excess of 25 years which includes employees who started as apprentices themselves. This impressed the Judges who were members of the Birmingham BSF procurement team, the Judges viewed Steelway as portraying the key values of the BSF programme.
Tim Cartwright from Steelway said: “The award has recognised our commitment to sustainable practices! We have gained a number of new contacts at Interbuild this year, the show has been an all round success for Steelway!”
