FAMCO has revealed the winners of its latest excavator challenge.

A number of amateur operators put their skills to the test on a Volvo Construction Equipment excavator simulator at the Construction Week Awards 2015.

Rider Levett Bucknall’s Ross Maclean and Edward Macleod scooped first and second place, respectively. Kone’s Ahmad Ayed came third.

FAMCO, a Platinum Sponsor of the Construction Week Awards, presented the three podium finishers – and all of the evening’s award winners – with collectors’ edition Volvo CE scale models.

In a speech delivered at the event, Frank O’Connor, FAMCO’s managing director for the UAE, said: “We have been very proudly sponsoring the Construction Week Awards for the last five years, and are always delighted to go all out for this important gathering of the power players in the construction industry.

“[This event] is a celebration, and as the region’s leading equipment distributor, we pride ourselves in being associated with those that endeavour and show leadership, those that overcome challenges and build great buildings… and construction companies that make big and bold ideas happen, and strive for best practices,” he added.

In addition to the excavator challenge, FAMCO used the Construction Week Awards to showcase a selection of its brands, including Himoinsa generators and lighting towers, Doosan Portable Power compressors, and a Volvo CE skid-steer loader.
