Project Manager Martin nominated for national award

Hull-based Sewell Construction project manager Martin Standley has been shortlisted for a national award in recognition of his positive contribution towards the construction community.

He has been chosen as one of the finalists in the Construction Manager of the Year category at this year’s Chartered Institute of Building’s CIOB Awards. He has been shortlisted following his work project managing the construction of Hull’s brand new Broadacre Primary School.

Martin joined Sewell Construction in 1985, where he served a four-year bricklaying apprenticeship, before becoming a Project Manager in 1994 and working on Sewell Construction’s first £10m-plus project at Orchard Park Health Centre. Now, his projects have a combined value of around £100m and he has worked on several of Hull’s cutting-edge facilities, such as Thomas Ferens Academy and the refurbishment of the former Endeavour School.

Broadacre Primary School is Hull’s first purpose-built base for young children with autism spectrum condition and aims to create an inclusive learning area that enables the pupils to be able to access mainstream education with the necessary additional support.

Martin championed the involvement of the site staff in social value projects during the build, helping to raise awareness on inclusion and diversity within the Sewell team, and even doing further research on autism spectrum conditions in order to broaden his own understanding. It is because of his enthusiasm and passion for this project that he was nominated for the award.

Martin will find out if he has been chosen as the winner at the glittering CIOB Awards ceremony in London in April.
