The partnership between Turner & Townsend and Yorkshire Water was awarded Integrated Supply Chain of the Year at the Building Awards 2012 on 17 April.

Hosted at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, the prestigious awards recognise the construction industry’s top performers. Yorkshire Water has been at the forefront of exemplary partnering, achieving significant efficiencies for over 15 years. They have recently established the Asset Delivery Unit (AUD) which brought together 550 people from 12 organisations in one collaborative office.

Mike Connolly, Director, commented, "This is excellent news for Yorkshire Water supporting their objective of ‘growing their influence’ and demonstrates how long-term relationships can really drive continuous improvement and add value.

"Turner & Townsend has been an integrated partner of Yorkshire Water for many years and this close working relationship has produced considerable savings, improved efficiencies, resulted in innovative service development and effective delivery across AMP4 and AMP5

"Our latest award for Integrated Supply Chain of the Year, beating stiff competition including Anglian @One Alliance is testament to this."

Nick Townsend, Cost Management, Managing Director said, "Our close working relationship with Yorkshire Water over many years has now resulted in the whole team and Yorkshire Waters' Partners being recognised by our industry peers for the achievements made by driving innovation and integrated ways of working.

"We always strive to be at the leading edge of service development. We have again proved that we can achieve exceptional results with our clients by this passion and commitment."
