CBOA Award of Excellence for Wood, Hall & Heward’s construction focussed brochure
29th April 2009

  On Wednesday the 29th April Wood, Hall & Heward Ltd were presented with the Commercial Boat Operators Association highest Member’s award, the Award of Excellence, by John Dodwell Chairman of the CBOA at the Multimodal exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham. Keith Mahoney received the award on behalf of WHH Ltd.

The citation commends the contemporary design of our promotional brochure highlighting the new age of the waterways and showing the benefits that construction site managers can gain through using barges.

CBOA chairman John Dodwell said:
“In the comparatively short time they have been operating, Wood Hall & Heward have clearly demonstrated that working the waterways is very much an activity of the present - and future – not just the past. CBOA welcomes their production of a contemporary brochure focussed on how construction site managers can benefit from using barges.”

He added, "They had seized the opportunity to show the benefits of using the waterways rather than roads, especially in congested urban areas. A major recent contract was the delivery of thousands of tonnes of steel beams and granite faced cladding panels to the new Kings Place cultural centre at Kings Cross, London."

CBOA is the trade association for companies which carry freight on the UK’s inland and estuarial waterways. CBOA members offer a one-stop service to advise companies on what can be done to take freight off the roads and on to water to capture both economic and environmental benefits.
