Construction Manager Of The Year Awards - 2024

Barry Kingscote from Galliford Try has been honoured as Construction Manager of the Year at the annual Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) Awards on Tuesday night- For his exceptional leadership on a challenging demolition and reconstruction project at Marble Arch in the heart of London. With a construction career that spans over four decades, Kingscote characterized the project as the most complex undertaking of his professional career.

Intro News

Kingscote led the successful demolition and reconstruction of an eight-storey building with a preserved facade, completing the project in just 192 weeks. Despite challenges like busy roads and multiple party walls, his innovative solutions, including reinforced concrete and secant piling, ensured efficiency and cost-effectiveness. His attention to detail, such as using pile caps and steel needles for facade support, underscored his commitment to excellence.

This contract was essentially secured on the back of Kingscote's stellar performance in a previous £51 million project, where the client ventured into solo territory for the first time. The fact that the contractor secured repeat business, especially for the fit-out phase of the project, speaks volumes about the added value he consistently brings to the table.

The night hosted more than 85 finalists across 13 different categories.
