Invisible Connections proud sponsors and member of our team shortlisted for award at CONSTRUCT 2019
CONSTRUCT’s annual flagship event, CONSTRUCT Day took place on 4th October 2019 and was attended by over 500 guests and 25 exhibitors from the concrete industry.
This year, Invisible Connections were not only sponsors of the ‘Young Achiever’ award but also delighted that our very own Technical Manager, Steve Fordham was shortlisted for the ‘Unsung Hero’ award.
The CONSTRUCT awards recognise outstanding achievements in the construction sector, acknowledging hardworking and committed individuals as well as innovative new products and systems. The awards ceremony was hosted by comedian, Hal Cruttenden, and the five winners were:
- Projects over £2.5m: Careys Civil Engineering – Principal Tower
- Projects under £2.5m: Oliver Connell & Son – Royal College of Pathologists
- Health & Safety: J P Dunn Construction – Deck Box
- Unsung Hero: Dave Heneghan – A J Morrisroe & Sons Ltd
- Young Achiever: Macauley Stock – Southern Concrete
Invisible Connections would like to offer their congratulations to all the winners, especially Careys Civil Engineering for taking home the Projects over £2.5m Award for Principal Tower which used our Ferbox reinforcement continuity system extensively throughout. The project demonstrated a number of firsts in the UK for high-rise construction, including the installation of optical fibre cables in the concrete columns and walls.

Neil Marney, CONSTRUCT Chairman, adds:
The standard of entries at this year’s CONSTRUCT Awards was extremely high, and to see the hard work and excellence celebrated by the sector at such a joyous event makes me proud to represent CONSTRUCT as Chairman. CONSTRUCT Day never disappoints and is always a brilliant opportunity for members to come together and network in a relaxed, enjoyable environment. Although it has been a tough year for the construction industry, the high standard of work shown by our members proves that even in difficult circumstances we are able to produce quality construction to the highest standards.
During the day over £6,000 was raised for the Lighthouse Club, the charity which provides financial and emotional support to the construction community and their families.
