He added that the award was a fantastic accolade for the Garenne Group and demonstrated the group’s approach to undertaking work in the Channel Islands.
‘I am delighted as this is a prestigious accolade which recognises the team’s considerate approach to this project. Working on such a significant project has provided a unique challenge for the team in terms of the unusual type of build in addition to the high levels of public interest.
