‘The Estates Office is now engaged in its biggest ever programme of construction and development work in support of the University’s strategic objectives. I am therefore delighted that Constructing Excellence South West and the CIOB have seen fit to recognise the Capital Projects team in this way. Throughout the team, there is a commitment to achieve the highest standards of construction, procurement and delivery with a culture of continuous improvement. This culture pervades not just the University’s in-house team but the consultants and contractors with whom we regularly work in delivering the programme. I congratulate everyone involved in helping the Capital Projects team to clinch this award.’
