A galvanizing company is reaping the rewards of their expertise after seeing work completed on behalf of its clients recognised in three separate award schemes over the past twelve months.
Scottish Galvanizers Ltd, part of Wedge Group Galvanizing, has seen three of their recent projects honoured by the highly respected Galvanizers Association.
Winning the 2010 Galvanizing in Detail award was the South Port Gates project at St Michael’s Church in Linlithgow, which was recognised for its innovative use of galvanized steel. Scottish Galvanizers, on behalf of artist blacksmith P Johnson & Company, galvanized the gates which served to not only complement the aesthetics of the main Grade A listed building, but also protected the structure from corrosion and deterioration.
The organisation was also praised for its work on the new Small Animal Hospital at Garscube Estate in Glasgow, which received a Highly Commended accolade in this year’s awards programme. The project saw Scottish Galvanizers appointed to galvanize all the external steelwork required to construct a state-of-the-art hospital building within the grounds of Garscube Estate.
These two awards follow hot on the heels of Scottish Galvanizers success at last year’s Galvanizing in Engineering awards. The company was commended for their work on the Colchester Community Stadium, which saw Scottish Galvanizers commissioned to galvanize the entire volume of steel used to construct a new 10,000 capacity football stadium.
Paul Tait, Customer Services Manager at Scottish Galvanizers, revealed: “The Galvanizers Association is the voice of the galvanizing industry, and to have our work recognised in this way by the organisation is a fantastic accolade.
“We are extremely proud to have been involved in all three of these major projects which have brought significant benefits to our clients and the local communities, and which demonstrate our ability to work in partnership with our clients to provide the very best solution for their needs.”
