Building Safety Awards Nhg (1)

22 May 2024

Golden Thread programme shortlisted for two awards

We’re delighted that the work we’ve done on building safety has been recognised.  

We’ve been shortlisted for Building Safety Initiative of the Year at the Association of Safety and Compliance Professionals (ASCP) Safety and Compliance Conference and for Digital Innovation in Asset Management at the Digital Construction Awards. 

The Digital Construction Awards recognises the use of digital processes and technology in asset management. Entries are from across the built environment – with other nominees including the Lattice app for ULEZ expansion signage and Ulster Campus for their virtual campus. You can see all the nominees for each award here 

As it wasn’t building safety specific we were able to tell the story behind the Building Safety Act and the Golden Thread coming about as a result of the Grenfell tragedy. We talked through the challenge the legislation presented and how important it was for us to get it right for the benefit of our residents.  

For the Building Safety Initiative of the Year award we presented how we improved the design construction and management of higher risk buildings as a result of the Building Safety Act. This includes how we have improved the management of our buildings and how we have empowered residents to have more say in how their buildings are kept safe. You can see all other nominees here 

On the awards Jake Le Page said: 

“It’s an honour that all the hard work we’ve done over the last couple of years has been recognised. 

“This has been a collaborative effort across the organisation which has changed how we think about managing our building data. With teams having better access to data and better understanding of the buildings they manage, we can help our residents be safer and feel safer in their homes. 

“A huge thanks to all involved” 

The ASCP Safety and Compliance Conference is on Wednesday 12 June in Cardiff and the Digital Construction Awards are on Tuesday 2 July in London. Keep your fingers crossed for the team!
