Merit wins TWO Construction News Specialist Awards!

We’re incredibly proud to announce that Merit won TWO Construction News Specialist Awards!

At a glittering awards ceremony held in central London, Thursday 7th September, Merit took home the prizes for ‘Project of the year by a Specialist Contractor (subcontract over £5m)’ and ‘Offsite Specialist of the Year’.

The annual awards ceremony, which is held by the leading publication in the construction industry, recognises large and small teams, and projects from across the UK.

In line with Merit’s impressive year of growth, these award wins are testament to Merit’s pioneering approach which prioritizes disruptive innovation, and measurable productivity growth within the sector.

Merit’s entry for ‘Project of the Year’ shined a spotlight on our most recent build – Autolus Therapeutics, the UK’s first CAR-T cell manufacturing facility – with the judges commenting that the project “provided a solution for a client that delivered real value” and is “a fantastic example of what design for manufacture and assembly can achieve”. They were also impressed that “so many elements of the project were being delivered in-house by Merit.”

The ’Offsite Specialist of the Year’ category celebrated Merit’s industrialised approach, with the panel commenting that Merit “stands out from the crowd as it knows its market and knows where to add value within a hugely complex field.”
A fantastic achievement for all involved – congratulations!
