Rob van Zyl, Managing Partner of Cundall Birmingham office said, “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for five awards we entered. There is an amazing number of great projects and initiatives within Cundall, and it is great to have them recognised by an esteemed industry body. It is especially rewarding to see some of our younger staff being recognised and that the investment we make in them is paying off.”
Charlotte Homer commented, ‘It was very exciting to be considered, let alone being shortlisted for the award. Often I volunteer with institution committees because I enjoy the aspect of organising CPD events, but it has been great that someone has noticed the work that I get involved with. It has also been good to know that the sessions I run with the graduates are well received and wanted. I firmly believe that you're only as good as your company lets you be, so a lot of the credit goes to Cundall for supporting me in the early stages of my career in this industry.’
Daniel Floyd also commented, ‘Firstly I would like to thank everyone at Cundall for supporting and nominating me, I feel greatly honoured to be shortlisted for the WMCE young achiever award. I have some great people around me who have opened doors and given me the opportunities I need to build my career with hopefully many more to come. I am one of those fortunate people who goes home knowing that I am helping to make a difference in the world of construction and engineering and I hope this continues. Being shortlisted has showed that my work is being recognised and gives me the enthusiasm and motivation to continue along the road to engineering a better future for all. ‘
