TWO Kier Construction Scotland construction managers reached the final of the Construction Manager of the Year Awards.

The awards ceremony, run by the Chartered Institute of Building, was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London and was hosted by BBC news presenter Steph McGovern. The event is the only one in Europe that celebrates excellence in construction management.

Kier Construction Scotland’s Stephen Parker reached the final of the schools category for his work at Garnock Community Campus, while John Gilchrist was shortlisted in the offices category 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.”
