Letchworth-based Willmott Dixon has been named Environmental Contractor of the Year at the Construction News Awards.

The Environmental Contractor award recognised the companies strategies to protect, preserve and nurture the environment. This includes beating its 2020 target of a 50 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by three years.

The judges were impressed with company's work to improve partners' approach to sustainability and how they demonstrated that environmental performance was embedded within the entire organisation.
