Baggaley Construction is celebrating after project manager Christian White won gold in the National CIOB Construction Manager of the Year Awards.

Christian, a senior project manager at the Mansfield-based firm, had been shortlisted in the category of New Build and Refurbishment Projects valued at between £2 and £7m.

Christian said: “I am absolutely thrilled at the award. I am proud of the work that we do but couldn’t believe that I had actually won gold. It’s testament I think to the whole team and how Baggaley delivers projects to ensure client expectations are not only met, but then exceeded.”

The award recognises Christian’s role as project manager at the Wyre Forest Crematorium and Cemetery, near Kidderminster, a project which saw the creation of a modern crematorium facility with offices, a chapel and a floral tribute area.

The awards event was hosted by the Chartered Institute of Building at the Marriott Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, London.

Baggaley managing director Phil Askin added: “Christian’s attention to detail and his ability to manage projects to the highest of standards exemplifies what Baggaley is all about. To take gold is a fantastic personal achievement and we are all really proud of him.”

Christian has risen through the ranks since first joining Baggaley as an apprentice joiner in 1994.
