Having worked closely with Lloyd & Gravell for many years on the Carmarthenshire Framework and other projects, its great too see them get the recognition they deserve.
From the ‘Construction Excellence Wales Winners Brochure’
Since joining the Carmarthenshire Framework in 2002 this business has been committed to the principles of best practice, particularly in terms of its leadership and development of its people to ensure it delivers a great end product.
‘From around 16 employees in 2002 it now has over 60 permanent and temporary people – all of whom are briefed and encouraged to pursue collaborative working methods. It was clear to the judges that there is a clear and continuing commitment to training as the team at Lloyd Gravell see this as not just the future of the business, but an investment for the region. There
is great evidence of this in the form of a commitment to apprentice schemes in particular the support for the Constructing Carmarthenshire Together Partnership (CCT) and links with Skills Wales. Via CCT, the company runs the Next Steps project – a competition based programme giving people of all ages the chance to win a two-year apprenticeship with them. From the outset the Lloyd & Gravell workforce were fully involved. It is a fine example to other SMEs and the bigger players too’.
