This achievement is particularly rewarding as applications for the Trades Awards have doubled compared to 2015.

Wmd Na Trades Awards Finalist 01

The winners are announced at the Awards Ceremony at the Ardoe House Hotel in Aberdeen on Friday 10th June. Before this, however there is a specialist Finalists’ Lunch at the end of April where the W M Donald team will answer questions from the Awards’ judges.

Our new suction excavator featured heavily in both submissions. It was illustrated as a driver for behavioural change in terms of Health and Safety, and, under the Innovation banner, as delivering substantial productivity improvements in project critical scenarios such as the installation of new and replacement gas and water connections.

Although he was unsuccessful in reaching the final three, I would like to congratulate Keith Murray on being nominated for the ‘Tradesman of the Year’ Award. Keith – shown in conversation with Eilidh Cameron (HR and HSEQ Compliance Manager) - played a pivotal role in the successful delivery of ‘The Gardens’ at Crathes, a luxury housing development on the banks of the River Dee. Keith was responsible for setting out and installing all finishings on the Crathes site.
