Presentations were made for a range of categories such as Innovation (Variable Message Signs), Safety (J Murphy & Sons), Heritage (Skanska UK Civil Engineering) and Investing In People (Babcock).

Project work was also recognised, split up into Small (Amalgamated Construction), Medium (Galliford Try Rail) and Large (Invensys Rail, Balfour Beatty Rail, Carillion, BAM Nuttall and URS Scott Wilson for Airdrie Bathgate).

Awards were also made for Community Engagement (Hull Kung Fu), Environmental Sustainability (Lancashire County Council), Good Lineside Neighbour (Friends of the West Highland Lines), Information Technology (Logica), Team Contribution (Skanska UK) and a Special Award to the team delivering Reading Station (a mix of Bechtel, Bam Nuttall, Jacobs, DeltaRail, Buckingham Group, Reading Borough Council and First Great Western).

Overall Supplier of the Year went to Invensys Rail.

A delighted Nick Crossfield, managing director of Invensys Rail Ltd, received the award from Sir David Higgins.

“Without our suppliers and partnerships we would not have the railway we have today,” said Sir David.
