Steve Lambourne makes National Finals for CIOB Construction Manager of the Year Awards 2012
Beard is delighted to announce that Steve Lambourne has made it through to the national finals for the prestigious CIOB Construction Manager of the Year Awards 2012, regarded as the premier showcase for management excellence in UK construction.
Winners of the CIOB Construction Manager of the Year Awards 2012 will be announced at a Gala event in London on 1st November 2012.
An experienced and enthusiastic Project Manager, Steve has been nominated for his successful management of an important yearlong project at Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum, involving the refurbishment and remodelling of the Egyptian galleries to create an up-to-date and more accessible visitor experience.
Minimising the impact of complex construction activities on the Grade I listed building as well as visitors, staff and priceless nearby artefacts were crucial factors. Meticulous planning, detailed coordination and strong communication with architects Rick Mather were paramount to the project’s success. Gardiner & Theobald acted as Cost Consultants and helped form the winning team, this project has won a RIBA award and been shortlisted for an Oxford Preservation Trust Award
John Youle, Construction Director for Beard Oxford said: “These are the UK’s most prestigious and hard earned construction awards and Steve deserves every credit for the Egyptian Gallery project. As a Design and Build project there was even more emphasis on the team to get things right and to deliver on expectations. Reaching the National Finals is an achievement in itself and demonstrates the strength of the team we have at Beard.”
