Malcolm reaches final stages of Construction Manager of the Year Awards

Malcolm Emmerson, Construction Manager for Osborne, has reached the final stage of the Construction Manager of the Year Awards 2012 for his work on West Thames College.

The £52 million contract was the largest construction contract awarded to Osborne. The new space delivers state-of-the-art facilities which matched the course requirements and allows space for the campus to develop as the college grows. As a result, the number of people applying to the college has increased by 40.5% since 2011-2012 which gained the college an additional £330K in funding.

Glyn Williams of West Thames College said: “Everyone who has seen the new college have genuinely been inspired by how good it looks.”

Tanisha Artman who is a performing arts student at the college says: “The new facilities at West Thames College are fantastic and I’m really proud to say that I study here. The Sir Joseph Banks building is welcoming and colourful and the classrooms are bright and spacious. The new buildings have really helped to motivate me in my studies and the wide open spaces across campus offer a great place to relax and unwind between lessons.”

The awards are open to site-based project managers with overall responsibility for the delivery of any UK construction project, and the winners are chosen judged on their individual project management work, not the success of their projects.

The winners will be announced at the gala dinner on Thursday 1 November 2012 at the Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane.
