Kier Construction Scotland duo reach finals of industry awards
Two of Kier Construction Scotland’s construction managers reached the final of the prestigious Construction Manager of the Year Awards, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London last week with host, BBC news presenter Steph McGovern.
The awards event, run by the Chartered Institute of Building, is one of the most prestigious built environment awards in the world and also one of the most unusual: it is the only event in Europe that celebrates excellence in construction management.
Kier Construction Scotland’s Stephen Parker reached the final of the schools category as construction manager for Garnock Community Campus and John Gilchrist was a finalist in the offices category as construction manager for the Cumbernauld Community Education Centre campus.
Brian McQuade, managing director of Kier Construction Scotland and north east, said: “Only the very best in the industry reach the final of these awards and we’re so proud that two of our team were recognised at this very special event.
“Awards like these are so important in honouring the talent of individuals within the industry, particularly as the sector strives to combat the skills shortage by encouraging new and diverse talent to consider a career in construction.”
