Teambuild, the UK construction industry competition, moved online for its first virtual contest.
The event, supported by CIBSE, took place at the end of 2020. Competitors undertook real-life challenges faced by construction industry professionals, particularly at this time of coronavirus restrictions.
Teams were set three tasks around a major development site by St Edward Homes, called Green Park Village, in Reading. The winners were Team JT2, featuring Thomas Cunningham and Tobias Mackrill, both of Hawkins Brown, Katherine Dauncey, of BDP, and Clare Timpani, of Motionspot.
Teambuild UK chair of trustees Patricia Newton said ‘We were absolutely delighted that committed new professionals have benefited from the training and expertise that Teambuild has to offer, despite the difficulties we, as an industry, have faced this year.’
Richard Brindley, who chairs the Teambuild Working Party, said: ‘The challenges are realistic and it makes sense this year that participants face the additional challenges of communicating and preparing materials that can be shared through virtual channels.’
Now in its 31st year, Teambuild is a multidisciplinary, team-working competition that aims to promote understanding and cooperation between young professionals in the construction industry.
Prizes were sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Constructors and Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects.
