An interdisciplinary team from BDP has won the Teambuild Future Leaders competition for the second year in a row. This is the fifth time BDP has won the Teambuild competition and, for this year’s winning team CONSILIO, we collaborated with a project manager from Mace.
Teambuild is a cross-disciplinary construction contest, where young teams from top construction companies compete over an intense two-day programme on the completion of a real design and build project. This year’s project was a residential led mixed-use development at Green Park Village in Reading provided by St Edward Homes.
Five teams from a range of backgrounds relating to the built environment made it through to the competition weekend. The performance of competitors was evaluated by six senior industry figures, representing a wide range of disciplines and they awarded CONSILIO the Overall Winners of the Future Leaders Competition team. Project Manager Marcel Peeperkorn also won the individual prize for leadership.
Judge Patricia Bessey said: "We were delighted to see such a range of professional disciplines from across all sectors of the construction industry at this year’s Teambuild event, the cross-discipline collaboration within the teams and the creative solutions to the challenges set by Teambuild only reinforced our view that this year’s competitors were probably of the highest standard to have attended the event in recent years. Although it was a close fought competition the judges were unanimous in awarding CONSILIO the Teambuild Constructors Award for their professional and ingenious solutions to the challenging problems set."
Team CONSILIO: Christina McHugh building services engineer, Marcel Peeperkorn project manager, Gergana Popova architectural assistant, Jon Hall sustainability consultant, Alice Galvin landscape architect and Rodolfo Leon project manager.
