Highly Commended: People Development Award, Constructing Excellence North East

Announced via an impressive Virtual Award Ceremony, this month GT3 were delighted to be receive the ‘Highly Commended’ award for the highly coveted People Development category, at the Constructing Excellence North East Awards 2020.

The award recognises organisations that appreciate and nurture their workforce to ensure they maximise the value of everyone’s contribution to the business. By creating inclusive workplaces which support people of all abilities through training initiatives, education, mentoring, support networks and innovative programmes, companies can demonstrate a significant impact on the future of their businesses and the wider construction industry.

Katie Forrest, Head of Marketing says,

“It’s always gratifying to receive an award, but to be recognised for GT3’s work in People Development is particularly rewarding. Every part of the business operates on our People Architecture ethos and the team have worked hard over the last 18 months to make time for the softer parts of running an incredibly busy business. From our People Academy initiative, to training support, mentoring programmes and our wellbeing series, now more than ever, it’s important to focus on our people.”

Simon Dunstan, Director says,

“To be highly commended in this category is confirmation of all the work we’ve done over the last year. Above all, Mark and I wanted to make sure GT3 Architects was a space where our team could grow. To attract the best, we have worked hard to create a nurturing and diverse environment. We value creativity, thoughtfulness and an approach to advancing architectural practice to create positive change for people, ultimately adding value to our communities, our projects, and the wider industry.”

On 4th December, in line with our ongoing campaign to ‘Nurture the next generation of Architects, Technologists and Designers who think differently’, GT3 Architects will be sponsoring Achiever of the Year at Constructing Excellence Midlands.
