The awards recognise the UK’s finest construction professionals across a range of different categories. 

Kingscote, senior project manager for Galliford Try Building London and South East Commercial, has been nominated for the Construction Manager of the Year Award in the Commercial category for the 1-4 Marble Arch project in London, a complex reconstruction of the 1920s building for The Portman Estate. 

He said: “It has been a privilege to have led this prestigious project, and this nomination is a testament to the team’s hard work and dedication on what was a challenging and ultimately highly successful project in the heart of London’s West End.” 

Meanwhile, Taylor, delivery manager for Galliford Try’s Environment division, has been nominated for the Construction Manager of the Year Award in the Public category, for his work on the AMP7 framework with South West Water. 

Taylor said: “I am delighted to be considered for this award and I would like to thank my team for all the support they have shown me, without which I would not have achieved what we have across the AMP7 programme. I wish all the nominees the best of luck at the awards.” 

The winners will be announced on 9 April.
