SWWIC are WINNERS at the Michelmore Property Awards 2020!!!

We are delighted that SWWIC have been awarded the ‘John Laurence Special Contribution Award’ at last nights Michelmores Property Awards 2020, in recognition of our support, dedication and making positive change to the construction industry.

We are very proud of everything that we have achieved as an organisation and thank you to everyone for their continued support!

This is a joint award with our Chariman, Glayne Price, who is also recognised for not only bringing highly successful projects to fruition, but also for helping to shape the sector as a whole.

Judge, Peter Lacy commented: “Glayne is an exemplar of what can be achieved by someone in the profession. Her dedication to improving her skills and growing her career is exceptional and she is suitably recognised by her peers and contempories. She has done a tremendous amount as chair of SWWIC, who are also an inspired choice for this award. They have spent a long time and been very successful at increasing diversity in construction. Both Glayne and SWWIC are a force to be reckoned with in the industry.”

Talking about the joint award Glayne said: “This is an incredible accolade for what we do as an organisation within the construction industry. Despite how difficult it has been this year this puts a lovely golden glow to the end of what has been a somewhat grey one!

As chair it has been an absolute pleasure to lead SWWIC over the past 4 years. Thank you to our amazing committee and members – as I said last night – we are a formidable team! Now all we need to do is keep highlighting the construction industry to the females of this world!

On a personal note I was humbled to receive the award alongside SWWIC and thank LHC Design for all the opportunities, support and mentoring they have given me. It has certainly been an amazing 30 years!”
