Peter Lobban congratulates winners at the inaugural London Construction Awards

London Construction Awards

The London Construction Awards, organised by The London Construction Skills Forum, highlight exemplar training and development practice within the capital’s construction and built environment industry. The inaugural ceremony took place at 30 St Mary Axe in London – otherwise known as ‘The Gherkin’ - and awards were recognised in nine categories.

Major sponsors, ConstructionSkills and the London Learning and Skills Council, recognised and encouraged all entrants, praising the level of achievement in training – especially from the apprentices and students.

Peter Lobban, CITB-ConstructionSkills Chief Executive, commented on the London outlook: he said “Construction skills are going to be in great demand in the capital over the next 5 years. Public sector procurement is likely to top £16bn and even without the transport and infrastructure improvements, the Olympics presents a build programme worth over £1.2bn.

“But with growth, comes the need for sustained skills development and we are committed to helping the industry rise to the challenge.”

Jacqui Henderson, Regional Director of the Learning & Skills Council London, said: “I would like to congratulate all of those involved in these awards and particularly the winners for helping to create a world class and dynamic construction workforce in London.”
