The company, which will shortly be expanding into new offices in
Cambridge, has won the new business from locations across the county
against tough competition from national building contractors by
tendering competitively and demonstrating a high quality service. The
three major contracts include a refurbishment for Cambridge
University, a new music and drama suite for Sawston Village College
and a new day nursery for Peterborough Regional College.
Bernard Ward has already recruited two
new people to help with its increased workload and winning the new
contracts will create further positions within the company.
“These are significant contracts and
winning them clearly demonstrates our ability to provide a high
quality building service at competitive prices,” said Steven Downes,
managing director of Bernard Ward. “In addition to these we have
also negotiated and finalised several smaller building projects where
we were able to provide considerable value for the finance available.
“This is a excellent start to the
New Year for us - and there are many more promising opportunities in
