The five new contracts include phase two of an extension at Clayton
Special School in Peterborough for Peterborough City Council, a new
development at Cambridge’s Religious Library and a major works at
the Gordon Fendick Junior School in Wisbech.
Two contracts have also been won in
adjacent counties including the development of a new sports facility
at Bedford College and a project for Leicester County Council to build
a dining facility at Market Bosworth High School.
The company won the contracts against
fierce competition because of its ability to competitively tender and
its approach of working with design teams providing advice to help
overcome obstacles and smooth the early phases of a project.
“This has been a tremendous year for
us,” said Steven Downes, managing director of Bernard Ward. “We
very much focus on providing the best possible customer service and
through the careful recruitment of professional staff and the setting
up of an additional office in Cambridge our ability to deliver this
has really excelled. This has become very apparent with this recent
influx of business.
“Despite this current success we are
still very eager to continue our organic growth and more importantly
to continue to work closely with our existing and past clients.”
Bernard Ward employs over 50 people
and specialises in construction work for schools, colleges and
healthcare as well as commercial and industrial projects.
