International recognition for Octatube
We are proud to be awarded with two Supply Chain Awards by the Wates Group in London. Octatube has been the winner in the category ´Extraordinary Pre-Construction Support’, and we have been highly commended as ‘Supply Chain Partner of the Year’.
Citation on ‘Extraordinary Pre-Construction Support’:
Octatube have worked with Wates at pre-construction on the London Business School, Victoria and Albert Museum and Tasman House. All three projects brought with them various challenges, in particular the difficulty of working on listed buildings with the first two projects. On all projects they have been proactive in providing solutions to the issues raised, working closely with our architects and engineers whilst ensuring the solution provided value engineering and cost savings. The finished products and on-site quality control have been first class and a credit to them as a company.
Citation on ‘Supply Chain Partner of the Year’:
Despite Octatube and Wates only having had a relationship for a couple of years, they have made a massive impact on our projects with their professionalism and approach to projects. Working on both our historic restoration projects at the Victoria & Albert Museum and London Business School and new build commercial at Tasman House, they have provided solutions to challenges that have occurred and worked in a collaborative manner with Wates, the client and the design team. The finished products that have been delivered are of first class quality and are a testament to Octatube’s attention to detail and exacting standards.
