It was a double celebration for Interserve at the Construction News Awards on Thursday as the international support services and construction group was named Contractor of the Year, while the company's long-serving CEO Adrian Ringrose scooped the Roll of Honour Award.
Interserve's construction business was commended for its project delivery and innovation, while Adrian, who became the youngest CEO of a FTSE250 company when he took the helm in 2003, was recognised for his leadership of Interserve and his outstanding contribution to the UK construction industry, as well as his work promoting skills development and innovation within the sector.
In the last decade, Adrian has overseen significant growth at Interserve, with the workforce expanding from 15,000 to more than 75,000 staff worldwide, with operations in more than 40 countries. During that time Interserve has become synonymous with high-profile UK projects, ranging from work on the Stirling-shortlisted Olympic Aquadome in Stratford, Manchester’s Christie Hospital and Sandwell College in the West Midlands to new headquarters for the West Yorkshire Police.
Adrian Ringrose said:
"These two awards recognise the fantastic efforts of every one of Interserve's construction team. Over the last 12 months there has been a real focus on doing things differently - delivering results in a sustainable and effective way with innovation at the core of everything we do".
