We are delighted to have won in the Inclusivity, Rising Star and Judge’s Choice categories
Tuesday, 11 October was a day of celebration at LocatED, as we scooped three wins at this year’s Government Property Awards. Hosted by our Chief Executive, Lara Newman, the ceremony brought together different parts of the public property sector to celebrate achievements, showcase innovation, and inspire even better outcomes in the future.
Senior Associate Rav Cheema won the Inclusivity Award, for his significant contribution to increasing and promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace and wider property sector.
Development Manager Jonathan Harvey was named a Rising Star alongside fellow nominee Ciara Billings from DLUHC. The award recognises a person in the first five years of their property career, who has made an outstanding contribution to their area of work, while progressing their knowledge, skills, and experience.
And at the end of the ceremony, Director General and Government Chief Property Officer Mark Chivers announced his Judge’s Choice Awards, presented to those who were just pipped to the post in their respective categories but were deserving of an award.
We were delighted that our nomination for the Morley College project, in the Collaboration category, won a Judge’s Choice Award. This project, delivered with the Department for Education, demonstrates successful cross-government collaboration with an extensive range of external stakeholders, galvanised by an inspiring local community, to preserve vital further education provision in Kensington.
Well done also to our other shortlisted nominations, of which we are also very proud! Director of Technical, Planning & Construction, Will Mumford, was shortlisted for the Keystone Award, for an individual who goes above and beyond to deliver outstanding results; our Asset Management Team was shortlisted in the One Team category, for demonstrating exceptional collaborative working to achieve improved outcomes within government property; and Houlton School, Rugby, shortlisted for Project of the Year alongside the Department for Education.
