JCP's collaboration with UKPN continues to win awards

UKPN announced winners of Supply Chain Excellence at Construction News Awards 2015.

We are delighted to announce that UK Power Networks ‘Principals’ Group’, facilitated by JCP, has scooped yet another award for ‘Supply Chain Excellence’ at the Construction News Awards at the end of June.

Simon Vaughan, a Director of JCP, is a leading expert in collaborative working and building robust, effective alliances. JCP has for over 20 years, championed true collaboration as the best way forward for long-term, high cost projects. The utilities sector is finally starting to catch up, as this award demonstrates.

"We are delighted that UK Power Networks' investment in this area continues to be recognised as outstanding and I'm pleased we are part of the winning team. This recognition reflects the team's commitment and determination to maximise the effectiveness of the supply chain and the excellent working relationships we have built up with UK Power Networks and its supply chain.” – Simon Vaughan.

UK Power Networks made the fundamental shift to a collaborative environment across the entire supply chain. Judges were impressed by the results the Group achieved, but also how the initiative has fostered a genuinely collaborative spirit between direct competitors who all reap the benefits of each other’s experience.

“UK Power Networks has clearly put a mechanism in place to drive improvement. And from a low starting position they have very good stats to prove that they delivered what they set out to. The results are impressive.” – Judges’ comment.

“Congratulations to all the colleagues at UKPN and the Supply Chain for winning at the Construction News 2015 Awards.” – Simon Vaughan
