G&H Sustainability Director wins achievement award

The founder and Managing Director of G&H Sustainability won a prestigious Yorkshire Young Achievers Award at a ceremony held at Leeds United Centenary Pavilion.
Andrew Hudson won the Achievement in Management and Enterprise category for his efforts developing the sustainability division of the G&H Group. The award recognises the best examples of entrepreneurial spirit and management skills needed to succeed in today’s business environment.

Judges were impressed with 28-year-old Andrew’s vision to approach the G&H Group in 2011 with the idea of setting up a sustainability business specialising in low carbon building technologies. This was coupled with continuing his education, having spent the last two years studying for a M. Eng in Building Services Engineering and graduating from Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Small Businesses programme.

Andrew also devotes time to the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers as the regional chairman for the young engineers branch, promoting engineering to the young engineers of the region. Managing Director of G&H Sustainability, Andrew Hudson, said: “I’m incredibly proud to have won this really coveted award especially given the calibre of the competition.

“Yorkshire has some wonderful young business people so it means a lot to me.

“The work G&H Sustainability is doing is making a big difference to our clients and this is due to the hard work of all our staff, not just me.”

Managing Director of the G&H Group, Graham Kelly, said: “Andrew is thoroughly deserving of this award and everyone at the company is delighted for him.

“From the moment he approach the Group with the idea of creating a renewables division it was clear he was very entrepreneurial and driven and he’s continued in this vein, making G&H Sustainability a great success.”

G&H Sustainability turned over £2m last year with clients including Asda, First Group and Harrogate Grammar School while forging excellent working relationships with Balfour Beatty, Hobson Porter and ISG Construction.

The business offers building contractors and consulting engineers a complete range of advisory, design, project management and installation services.

Low carbon systems include solar photovoltaic panels, solar thermal, biomass boilers, ground and air source heat pumps, combined heat and power plants, wind turbines, rain and grey water harvesting and control and energy reduction strategies.
