STATION COPS BUILD 'OSCAR'

Celebrations followed the award of a top building industry Oscar following Greswolde's completion of a headline-making project in Bilston to replace West Midlands Police's second oldest station.

The Built in Quality Award, which recognises excellence and innovation, was presented to Greswolde MD Malcolm Priest and his team by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Councillor Anita Ward, at the VIP showcase evening Celebrating Construction.  The winning £1.8 million project to replace the landmark 170 year-old moated building was chosen in teh Community category, in recognition of the hugely improved facilities it offers to five neighbourhood policiting teams and the community it serves.

"We are delighted to receive this prestigious award for the work we carried out on this landmark building, which is now serving the local community," says Malcolm, who received the award with Site Manager Dave Jenkins.

The impressive new police station, which features design innovations including a stylish steel bridge to the main entrance, boasts better facilities including community rooms for public meetings.  A West Midlands Police spokesperson commented: "The building's central location, modern facilities and comm unity links has made it a hit with staff, partners and community members alike."

The Awards, which recognises a range of building achievements in the public and private sectors across ten categories, are co-hosted by Birmingham City council, Building and Consultancy Services.

A spokesperson said: "The awards promote and reward excellent work in construction and winners are chosen from projects nominated by building consultancy surveyors.  "Now in its 13th year, the event is well established as the Oscars of the industry in this region."
