Success at the Constructing Excellence North East 2018 awards

Working in collaboration with our clients and their teams, Turner & Townsend picked up seven awards out of a shortlist of ten commissions in nine categories at the Constructing Excellence in the North East 2018 awards.

The Urban Sciences Building at Newcastle University, in particular, swept the board and was triumphant in winning all of the five categories in which it was entered, including taking home the prestigious Building Project of the Year award.  Turner & Townsend provided a combination of Project Management and Cost Management services, as well as Principal Designer and BIM Information Manager in the construction of this unique project.

In addition to the Urban Sciences Building, other commissions that took home awards included those for Northumbrian Water Group (NWG) in the People Development category, and GSK, who won the coveted prize of Client of the Year.

Darren Laybourn, Director at Turner & Townsend was delighted with the results, confirming:

“Turner & Townsend in the North East has demonstrated once more that our team is assisting our clients to deliver great outcomes.  Our collaborative approach, working alongside our clients and their teams in delivering service excellence has once again been recognised by the industry, our peers and our clients.
We are proud to be a part of such amazing teams, all dedicated to creating a better place to work, live and enjoy the North East.”
