Kier | Awarded Leaders in Collaboration at the NCE100 for the Collaborative Learning Circle
The NCE100 is New Civil Engineer’s annual awards recognising and celebrating the most innovative, impactful and inspirational firms operating in civil engineering.
Last night at the NCE100 Awards the newly founded Collaborative Learning Circle (CLC) was awarded “The leader in Collaboration Award”.
The CLC was founded to fundamentally change Safety, Customer Service and Delivery Values in Construction & Highways through stronger collaboration and greater alignment across the sector. One element of the journey is to educate everyone in the true value of collaboration through a series of linked e-learning modules and thus far the modules have been completed by approximately 1000 people from the sector.
The CLC which is Chaired by Baroness Newlove is supporting the challenge to ‘drive consistency in excellence’ across the sector with a view to raise the bar on our construction sites through the adoption of common standards – ‘the one best way’.
The CLC has already gathered momentum after its official launch at the House of Lords in October 2018 where it invited clients and supply chain partners to join forces and start to work on collaboration in Construction & Highways.

It was also awarded for its contribution towards exceptional social value with its dedication and engagement with the charitable organisation Onside Youth Zones, providing life changing opportunities for disadvantaged young people.
Recent events have seen over 80k raised for the charity with a grueling canoe trip from Fort William to Inverness where 28 participants battled the elements physically and mentally to cover 60 miles over 3 days.

Dave Wright founder and member of the CLC told us “Its moments like this where we can really see the progress being made and believe in what we have set out to achieve. The journey has only just begun and we are excited to see such momentum in a short space of time.”
Matt Morphet of Chevron Traffic Management told us “From the outset of forming the CLC and the initial conversations around a table we didn’t dream that it would develop this fast, we are so grateful for the support from the partners who have got the CLC to this stage. We can now focus on making a real difference and impact to people and business.”
