It was such a tough process to select a nominee to be entered into the awards! As a busy business full of dedicated project managers, surveyors and facility managers who all work so hard transforming spaces into places communities love, we think everyone here deserves an accolade for their work.
We looked for an individual who demonstrated evidence of strong commercial, analytical, negotiation and communication skills to achieve value for money in building and civil engineering projects and whose underlying behaviours showcased our own core business values, from Pride to Teamwork, our values are the foundation of our future success.
From his time during his university placement year to returning to work for us following graduation, Harry brings his endless enthusiasm, passion for his profession, high standards and sunny disposition to everyone within the company and our clients alike. He works hard and is not afraid to question, query and in-hand, learn, and he continues to push himself as he works through his RICS accreditation preparation.
Recently, he steered sites though the changes the pandemic thrust upon them, quickly locking them down and later, Harry developed innovative ways to carry out virtual weekly site meetings allowing clients to discuss progress and variations from the safety of their own home.
Going above and beyond in all aspects of his role, he is always the first to volunteer around the office and leads the way with technological innovation within our company. He champions the spirit of our company culture, he lives and breathes our company values and he is always happy to help and get involved.
We have even witnessed our nominee eat a big slice of cake that a client had baked, despite later admitting that he strongly disliked the cake, although this goes against his usual honest approach with clients, he did not want to risk harming our client relationship by declining the homemade cake.
Although we could talk about Harrys contribution to the company all day long, from his office-based work, innovative technology ideas and his role in shaping major projects with real social value, we will let the judges form their own opinions.
We are keeping our fingers crossed!
