BUILDING up his reputation, a Rugby construction manager has been nominated for a national award.

Stepnell project manager John Neill has been shortlisted by industry body the Chartered Institute of Building for the title of Construction Manager of the Year.

John was nominated by staff at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, where Rugby-based Stepnell built the new Remembrance Centre.

The award-winning £15.7million centre has brought together an existing chapel, former visitor centre and external spaces and gardens.

John and his team also enabled existing facilities to stay fully operational for the staff and visitors during the 50-week construction programme.

John said: “I am incredibly proud of my role leading the team which created the iconic new Remembrance and Learning Centre.

“The finished building is a sympathetic addition to the National Memorial Arboretum and has provided this national site of remembrance and commemoration with world-class facilities.”

The winner will be announced in a ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on September 27.
