Solidaritest is a contest that seeks to measure and reward the quality of business companies’ social and humanitarian commitment, expressed through their strategies in the field of social solidarity. The Best Practices Award recognizes, in turn, a specific innovative social solidarity project. Again, BESIX was one of this year’s five winners, as well as the only company to carry off both awards.
On November 18th, 2010 the nominations and winners of the 2010 steel construction prize were announced in Louvain-La-Neuve. Out of all the entries, a total of 29 projects were nominated. After two successive nominations in 2006 and 2008, West Construct was once again among the winners with a nomination in the category of “Civil engineering and engineering structures”. West Construct was nominated for the cycling and pedestrian bridge in Beernem.
Once again, just like last year, the BESIX Group received the quality-label.
