The Major Contracts team celebrate triple success in both the LABC awards and Lincolnshire Construction & Property Awards 2017. Cartergate and Kenwick Park Spa & Leisure have received these prestigious awards and now battle it out in the National Finals in November. The team have exciting times ahead. Well done to everyone involved!
After scooping first prizes at the regional LABC East Midlands and LABC South Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards, Gelder Group will be competing against itself in the LABC National Award Finals. The event takes place on Friday 10th November at the Westminster Plaza, London.
Gelder Group workmanship on the re-development of Kenwick Spa & Leisure Centre complex at Louth following a devastating fire was voted the ‘Best Large Commercial Project’ by East Midlands building control officers. The company’s workmanship on Cartergate House in Grimsby secured first prize from South Yorkshire and Humber Building Control Officers, again for the category of ‘Best Large Commercial Project’.
Project teams at Cartergate included ENGIE and CR Parrott. The project teams at Kenwick Park were LK2 Architects and the Kenwick Park Estate.
On the awards, Steve Gelder (Gelder Group CEO) commented:
I am absolutely thrilled, we’ve secured many LABC Awards in the past which is great as it’s fellow industry professionals recognising you, but we’ve never secured the same award in two regions before. They are both great projects so let’s hope we can be recognised nationally and promote the region at the same time.
We are proud to announce that our Cartergate Office Development took the prestigious award of Best Large Commercial Project at the recent LABC awards at Forest Pines, Scunthorpe. The evening was attending by David Baines (Contracts Manager) as well as the team from ENGIE and Wilkin Chapman Partners, whom gave great praise to the Gelder team for their successful work.
Congratulations to everyone involved. If you would like more information about our involvement with the Cartergate project, please get in touch.
For the first time, Lincolnshire celebrated its multimillion pound construction and property industry by launching a new set of industry awards. The Lincolnshire Construction and Properties award ceremony, hosted by Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, was run to recognise, unite and champion the county’s leading construction and property businesses, and the dedicated people who work so hard behind the scenes.
Cartergate also received a Highly Commended for Development Project of the Year (over £5 million).
This was the sector’s first award ceremony and it was a brilliant turnout. The awards ceremony has certainly paved the way for subsequent events, and we hope to be involved again. Well done to all the teams involved!
Major Contracts had the pleasure of handing over the £6 million Cartergate Office Development in Grimsby yesterday to the delighted occupants, law firm Wilkin Chapman. North East Lincolnshire Councillors were extremely pleased with the finished building.
Wilkin Chapman chief executive Des Mannion said:
It’s been a fantastic collaboration between the council, the Gelder Group and the firm.
This project used Building Information Modelling (BIM), the new Government construction strategy. Our implementation of BIM helped to co-ordinate the entire build and has provided a successful end result for the facilities management team.

The Cartergate office development has been dubbed the best building in Grimsby in the last 50 years. The office will become the headquarters of law firm WIlkin Chapman. The work started August 2015 and has now seen the steelwork and precast flooring completed. Des Mammion of Wilkin Chapman commented:
We are thrilled to how well its going up, its been a fantastic collaboration between the council, construction company and the firm.
Work will now continue on the external build of the new offices and the roof will be lifting into place in the next few weeks.
Work to build offices on the derelict Cartergate site in Grimsby has finally got under way. Work started on Monday, August 24, with the construction of a four-storey office building set to be completed by late 2016.
The £6 million project will be the new Grimsby headquarters for law firm Wilkin Chapman, who plan to generate more jobs for the area in order to fill the 250 employee capacity building. This project will be the beginning of an exciting journey for all parties and will commence the first contract to be built using Building Information Modelling (BIM) the new Government Construction Strategy.
Contracts Manager David Baines will be overseeing Site Manager Alan Smith on this new project.
