WGC company reaches the higher Echelons
ANOTHER company from Times Territory will be present as finalists at the 2010 Building Awards.
Echelon Consultancy, based in Bridge Road East, WGC, has been nominated in the Construction Consultant/Surveyor of the Year (fewer than 100 staff) Category for the glitzy bash in London on April 22.
Formed five years ago, the company specialises in developing long-term construction and maintenance partnerships in the social housing sector.
The nomination comes after the company scooped Consultant of the Year at the Housing Excellence Awards in 2008.
But as managing director Mathew Baxter explained, the latest honour is a big step up.
