Eurocentral-based electrical specialist Crown House Technologies has won another major award at a prestigious ceremony.

The company scooped a title at the event hosted by SELECT, the campaigning trade body for the electrotechnical industry in Scotland.

Crown House Technologies, which created a best practice high voltage installation at Scottish Power’s HQ, scooped the Best Electrical Safety Project award, sponsored by campaigning charity, Electrical Safety First.

Phil Buckle, director general of Electrical Safety First, said: “This award allows us to celebrate companies that are promoting and fully integrating electrical safety into their working practice.

“Awards of this nature are all about identifying and highlighting good practice, so that the industry can raise the bar for the benefit of all.”

Crown House Technologies has figured prominently in SELECT awards in previous years, and was the company behind the modelling and building services at the Hydro, the spectacularly successful 12,000 seat entertainment arena in Glasgow.

Newell McGuiness, SELECT managing director, said: “Companies such as Crown House Technologies set a magnificent example in the field of installation and operational safety.

“The electrotechnical industry, by its nature, can be hazardous and for that reason safety has to be taken very seriously indeed. Crown House Technologies has shown once again that it practises what it preaches.”

The successful engineering enterprise has a long pedigree, having been founded more than 200 years ago. Now part of Laing O’Rourke, it is one of the UK’s leading building and infrastructure technology services providers, supplying a complete building services package.

The award was presented, at a glittering gathering at the Radisson Blu in the centre of Glasgow on Friday (October 9) night, hosted by writer and broadcaster Keith Aitken.
