This includes sites due for demolition and those which are to continue in use. “We regularly deal with private and public sector clients, nationally and internationally, for industrial, commercial and residential structures.

Cuddy Group’s reputation is what sets us apart from the competition, Mike underlines in closing. “It hasn’t been easy building up such a loyal customer base, but our hard work and dedication has won us numerous plaudits and awards, such as the ‘Best Demolition Contractor 2017 – UK’ award “While the firm never set out on any project with the intention of winning awards, it’s still gratifying to be recognised as we have. Such recognition enhances Cuddy Group’s reputation, but nothing can match the word-of-mouth that our expert engineers, managers and operatives have garnered over the years. It’s this strength – which comes from exceeding clients’ expectations and working with them as partners – which has placed us as one of the country’s leading contractors. “We’re not the sort of firm which sets out to win awards – satisfying the clients is reward enough – but we’re honoured to have been recognised nonetheless with some of the industry’s most prestigious honours. In past, few years, Cuddy Group has received ARCA Gold ‘Training’ and ‘Asbestos Supervisor of the Year’ awards; Specialists Awards 2009 ‘Demolition’; and ‘Highly Commended’ status in the ‘Demolition Training’ category at the inaugural Demolition & Recycling International awards held in Amsterdam, 2009. “These join Cuddy’s other awards, including two International Safety Awards from the British Safety Council, a Contract Journal Award and a RoSPA Bronze Award. In addition, Cuddy Group and its personnel also have memberships to groups including the National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC) and the Institute of Demolition Engineers. We are always looking to improve Cuddy Group’s services as a demolition contractor, civil engineering contractor, asbestos contractor and land remediation contract and in our pursuit of improvement we are always glad to receive recognition.”
