WT Wins Love Northallerton Award

Golden Recognition for Walter Thompson

26th Jan 2021

Walter Thompson are extremely proud to announce we’ve won not one but TWO awards in the recent Love Northallerton award ceremony. This is the first of its kind and so it’s a pleasure to be honoured by the Town where we’ve been situated since our inception in 1920.

Our very own Andrew Sykes (Apprentice Bricklayer) won the award for Apprentice of the Year. Andrew is now in the third year of his apprenticeship and has worked on various jobs since starting with the company. He had this to say:

“Walter Thompson have given me the chance to do what I’ve always wanted to do for a career. I’ve experienced so much variation with the different projects I’ve been able to work on throughout my short time with company and it’s been a fantastic experience.”

To make the night even better we were ‘virtually’ presented with the Employer of the year award. We’ve always tried to employ local people and give the opportunity for on the job learning for all our staff to better further their careers through our Walter Thompson Academy programme. It’s a pleasure to be recognised by our local Town.

ONE of the region’s largest construction companies is celebrating after winning a top national award.

Northallerton-based Walter Thompson Ltd was declared winner of the Most Considerate Site (£1m to £2.5m) category at this year’s prestigious Considerate Constructors Scheme’s National Site Awards.

The gold award was given in recognition on the Breckon Hill Primary School project in Middlesbrough, where the company completed an extension and refurbishment project.

The annual CCS awards recognise the highest levels of consideration and care shown by constructors towards their local neighbourhoods, the general public, their workforce and the environment. This year’s awards were held online in light of Covid restrictions.
