Elliott selected as a finalist for the 2013 CN Awards

  • Elliott selected as a finalist for the 2013 Construction News Specialist Awards

JLR Modular Volumetric Four Storey Office Accommodation AwardsOut of the thousands of building projects in the UK every year Elliott has been selected in the top ten finalists for the award of Project of the Year - subcontract over £500K.

This category recognised our specialist contribution to a project where the value of the work completed by us was over £500,000, with the Judges looking for evidence of the contribution made to the success of the project as a whole, and how we worked with Jaguar Land Rover. It is a great opportunity for us to showcase our work on the JLR modular office accommodation in Warwickshire.

The categories we are judged on are:

• Client satisfaction
• Health and safety record
• Sustainability
• Workmanship
• Completion on time and to budget
• Innovation
• Relationship with supply chain

Jaguar Land Rover project facts and figures:

• 192 modules four storey modular / volumetric office building system
• Total floor area of 7,262m²
• Accommodates over 600 office staff
• Zero health and safety issues during the project

High specification fit out usually only found on a traditional office build includes extensive glazing, solid Beech internal doorsets, air conditioning, fully integrated panelling system (IPS) to vanity units and WCs.

Rebecca Evans, Editor of Construction News spoke of the important role specialist contractors play in the construction industry:

"You are the best specialist contractors in the UK. We all know that specialists are at the heart of the construction industry. You provide the innovation that the industry needs to survive."

A spokesperson from Jaguar Land Rover said: “Elliott provided us with a cost effective and futuristic-looking office building for 600 employees that fits well with our brand. We particularly liked the fact that the system is relocatable and offered us complete flexibility of design, which means that it will be much easier to add further units, which we subsequently did, or downsize should we wish.”

Elliott is changing the perceptions of modular / volumetric building solutions with our innovative Progress system. Progress offers all the benefits of Modern Method of Construction, yet is comparable to traditional build.

During the last 12 months Elliott has secured several large contracts for Progress, the most notable of which is Jaguar Land Rover.

Elliott adopted an open and collaborative relationship with JLR, which played a central part in creating the flexible four storey modular / volumetric office design.
