On Monday the 19th of February I gave my presentation to the judging panel for the Women in Property (WiP) awards, having been nominated by Dr Hannah Wood, head of Building Surveying at the University of Brighton.

In February 2018 a team of student from the Built Environment subject area took part in the regional heats of the CIOB Brighton Futures Challenge, where they came thirds overall, securing them a place in the final. The Final was held last week at the Ballymore head offices and Wardian site, Canary Wharf, London. Despite the snowy conditions we made it to site on time so were able to look around the area at all of the ongoing construction work.
The final consisted of a site visit around the Wardian site, a residential-led development under construction from Eco World-Ballymore and designed by architect firm Glenn Howells. The scheme consists of two skyscrapers , upon completion, expected to be in 2019, Wardian London will be one of the tallest residential developments in London and the United Kingdom. Once the site visit was complete, students were given 90 minutes to prepare a 10 minute presentation analysing the use of prefabrication on the project and identifying where they could make improvements, this was then presented to the project team and CIOB representatives.
The Brighton team were commended for their presentation and came second in the overall competition, narrowly missing out on the top prize. Overall it was a really enjoyable day and the team made lots of connections with industry professionals.
The Brighton team consisted of Building Surveying graduate and MSc Town Planning student Tavis Stringer and Project Management for Construction undergraduate students Rhys Hooks and Dafydd Rees (in final year), and Taka Musimurimwa (in second year).
