EIC wins Contractor of the Year award
EIC's northern division has been recognised for excellence in its integrated approach towards sustainability by the influential industry body.

Northern regional director Tony Greenway accepted the award from CIBSE chairman Frank Mills at the awards ceremony in Manchester.

Greenway has overseen the rapid expansion of the Manchester office in the last 18 months.

'EIC is extremely client-focused and we make every effort to ensure our experience and expertise is used to best effect to benefit our customers,' said Greenway.

'Our engineers and managers are committed to helping clients meet both their environmental and financial targets. We have found that by being involved from the very early design stage of a project, we can help clients to make the most of their engineered building services throughout their lifetime, ensuring reduced maintenance requirements, which is better value for money in the long run and a better deal for the environment.

EIC has already implemented a range of carbon reduction and energy saving measures within its own business structure, establishing a Sustainable Solutions team, with directors, engineers, designers and sustainability specialists reviewing new and ongoing contracts to recommend environmentally friendly and cost-effective alternatives for clients.

EIC uses local suppliers where possible, saving on fuel miles and supporting the local economy, while all field operatives are issued with hand held PDA devices to reduce the amount of paper being used.

In addition, EIC has pledged to replace its existing 350-stong vehicle fleet with greener models in order to reduce its CO2 emissions.

Frank Mills, chairman at CIBSE North West, said the standard of entries was extremely high and added: 'In light of the national commitment to reducing the UK's CO2 emissions there is a need for stronger collaboration across disciplines in order to deliver an integrated design which results in construction projects which are sustainable and functional.'
