Ground Control, has once again added to its ever-expanding collection of industry and business accolades. In September, it was presented with two BALI (British Association of Landscape Industries) National Awards development of the Children’s Garden at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew, as well as being listed for the third time in the London Stock Exchange Group’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ 2019 Report.
The two BALI awards, in the ‘Community & Schools Development’ and ‘Hard Landscaping Construction’ categories, are in recognition of the significant design and build contract to create the hugely popular new attraction in collaboration with the Royal Botanical Gardens. The company will find out in December at the BALI Awards Ceremony if it has been successful in winning the Principal Award in each of the above category or the Association’s prestigious Grand Award.
The London Stock Exchange Group’s annual ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ Report celebrates the success of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses (SMEs), with companies representing over 40 sectors and spanning every country and region across the UK. Ground Control has been listed for the third time in 2019, as it has once again demonstrated very strong and positive revenue growth – a performance the Report’s authors believe has sets it apart from many of its industry peers.
Says Simon Morrish, CEO, Ground Control:
“To round off the summer of 2019 with such outstanding recognition from both our industry and the wider business community is incredibly pleasing for both me personally and all of the team here at Ground Control. Every day, hundreds of Ground Control employees and contractors across the UK are committed to delivering the highest quality service to our customers and it is on this commitment that we have built such a successful business.
“I’m very proud of what we have achieved over the past 12 months, to continue to grow the business and work on some amazing projects like the Children’s Garden at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the Ground Control team for the work they do every day. They are a dedicated and focused team and these awards demonstrate this.”
