NPS enjoyed a fantastic evening last week at the Celebrating Construction in South Yorkshire (CCISY) Awards 2018.
Our Barnsley office walked away with two awards on the night:
- Training Award – NPS Barnsley
- Project of the Year under £5m – Elsecar Heritage Centre
NPS Barnsley is dedicated to developing staff, and provide a supportive working environment where training and personal development together with succession planning mean staff can realise their full potential.
Since 2011, over £250,000 has been invested in staff CPD with 400+ ‘training days’ carried out annually. The company also hosts numerous apprentices and work placement students each year.
The Elsecar Heritage Centre scheme saw the sensitive restoration of a derelict mid-18th century building into six commercial Units for small local businesses.
The building is situated at the Elsecar Heritage Site, and although is of great historical value, faced demolition. However, despite numerous challenges including a limited budget and serious structural issues, this important local asset has been fully restored to its former glory. 20 new jobs have now been created with the Units contributing to the visitor attractions of the site.
