“I am delighted to see the talent and commitment of our construction managers recognised at these prestigious awards. Over the past eighteen months, our people have delivered some incredible projects, overcoming the immense challenges created by the pandemic to work safely to deliver critical school places, world class healthcare facilities, vital regeneration schemes and places for people to enjoy. It is great to see our people recognised by our peers on the national stage”.

All the medal winners are to be applauded for their hard work, commitment and professionalism. And for one company to achieve eight medals is an extraordinary achievement.
