Two Property Awards for Morris & Spottiswood from The Co-operative

Construction services company Morris & Spottiswood were delighted to win two awards at the Co-operative Food’s first Property Awards held in Manchester last week.

Richard Magnall, based at Morris & Spottiswood’s Warrington office, won ‘Outstanding Individual Contribution of the Year’ and The Co-operative’s judges said: “Richard’s passion for all things Co-operative means he is regularly consulted by others on best practice and how to implement improvements.”

The company also won the ‘Community Champion’ award in recognition of their support for the communities they work in. They were also one of four shortlisted for the 'Outstanding Organisation of the Year’ category.

The 10 awards, which recognise the support and specific contribution from The Co-operative Food’s property suppliers, were presented by host Vernon Kay at a ceremony held at Lancashire County Cricket Club. The event was in aid of The Co-operative Group’s charity of the Year Mencap and ENABLE Scotland.

Morris & Spottiswood Chief Executive, Chris Saxton, commented: “This is a great recognition by the Co-operative to all our teams who have been involved and contributed so much in delivering the Co-operative roll out workload.”
