AR is committed to delivering service excellence to their clients and wider supply chain, innovating to provide the best solution. This was recognised in also being named finalist in four further categories including Specialist Contractor of the Year, Health Safety & Wellbeing Excellence, Project of the Year and Innovation of the Year. These celebrated commitment in safety, sustainability, collaboration, client satisfaction and innovation.

Mike Henderson, MD at AR, commented This award win, along with being finalist in a further four categories, is testament to the whole AR team. Our commitment to providing a first-class service to our clients and wider supply chain and innovating to deliver the right solution, is where we excel. We have won this particular award each time we’ve entered and we’re all proud to have received these prestigious accolades.

Colin Marrs, editor of Construction News said:"The CN Specialist Awards is always a very special occasion and this year’s event was no exception. At a time of economic uncertainty for subcontractors, it feels more vital than ever to celebrate the incredible work the industry does.

“The entries for this year’s award revealed inspiring stories of innovation, effort and efficiency that bear testament to the industry’s continuing adaption to ever-changing circumstances. It was amazing to see so many recognised and a shame that not every shortlisted entry could win.

“Subcontractors are currently operating under intense pressures. That’s why it is so important to support each other through difficult times. By showcasing the achievements of the industry, I hope Construction News can help boost the confidence of an industry without which there can be no return to economic normality.”
