Newcastle based Whelan win Landmark Award

Northeast based Whelan Construction Development has topped off what has been the company most successful year-to-date by adding a Landmark Award to its burgeoning portfolio.

Whelan beat off stiff competition from nominees around the Northeast of England to scoop the industry's prestigious award, which recognises building excellence in the region. Announced at the annual event in November, held at The Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, the award was in acknowledgment for the firm's Salvus House development in Sunderland.

A flagship headquarters for Sunderland Marine Mutual Insurance; the 3,300sq m bespoke development was designed to provide longevity using high quality materials, whilst remaining economically viable. Specific operational logistics, communication requirements, and the local environment were taken into consideration, along with design elements to reflect the industries supported by Sunderland Marine.

Geoff Parkinson, Chief Executive of Salvus Bain, said: "Whelan was one of six contenders for the new office build. I was impressed from the start with their down-to-earth, straight talking manner and it an approach that continued throughout the project. They have delivered everything they promised and more. I found their service impeccable and I'm delighted to have worked with them. The end result has surpassed all my expectations".

The Landmark Award is the latest addition in a long line of significant achievements for Whelan, which this year celebrated the company strongest growth to date, having embarked upon a significant expansion plan, which will see Whelan double in size by 2010.
