For over 10 years the ‘Parking Charter’ has been in operation between Bedford Borough Council and Makers. This year saw the fourth multi-storey refurbished under the partnership and scooped the coveted British Parking Association ‘Best Refurbishment’ 2015 and also finished Runner up in the European Parking Awards ‘Remodeling Category” for Allhallows MSCP.
“Allhallows success is a testament to the team that have delivered all of the Boroughs parking stock; we are absolutely delighted and proud of what we have achieved.”
Stuart Briggs, Executive Director Bedford Borough Council
Allhallows follows in the footsteps of other successful car parks refurbished by Makers and Bedford BC, with Lurke Street, River Street and Queen Street all being recognised by the BPA with Lurke Street and Queen Street both winning the BPA “Best Refurbishment” in 2005 and 2007 respectively.
“We won our first back in 2005, to still be winning 10 years on is a fantastic achievement and we are delighted for our Client.”
Darren Wootton, Operations & Technical Director
The partnership was presented with the BPA award by Para Olympian, Ade Adepitan, however Bedford Borough Council were unable to travel to Berlin to receive the EPA’s award, but the award was received by Makers and presented to the authority outside their offices.
“Makers have been fantastic partners; they have exceeded all expectations, and delivered first class projects.”
Malcolm Parker, Building Services
