QMAC Construction has been shortlisted in two categories in the CEF Construction Excellence awards 2022. The categories are:
- Social Housing. The recently completed new-build housing development at Drumellan Park, Craigavon, was built for families with disability requirements. This project was successfully completed an impressive eight weeks early. The client was Choice Housing Association.
- Apprentice of the Year. Kevin Boggs, who worked as an Apprentice on the Enniskillen Workhouse restoration project has been shortlisted. Kevin is undertaking an NVQ Level 3 in Heritage Skills Construction (specialising in Woodwork Occupation) in association with South West College. Kevin aims to achieve a Level 3 Diploma in Heritage Skills (Wood Occupation) and work locally in the industry as a Heritage Joiner.
Sean Mullen, Contracts Director at QMAC Construction, commented,
“I am delighted that the company has been recognised in two categories. Managing a construction business is all about managing people. We have experienced staff and supply chain members who each contributed to delivering the Drumellan Park project ahead of schedule. This was a fantastic achievement for all involved as it allowed families to move into their new homes earlier than expected. I am also very pleased that the work of Kevin Boggs on the Enniskillen Workhouse restoration project has been recognised. The retention and promotion of traditional building skills is essential to retain the fabric of the wider built environment for future generations. We are very keen to recruit and train Apprentices to ensure there is a pipeline of new talent coming into the industry. We wish Kevin well for a successful career.”
The awards ceremony will take place at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Belfast on the evening of 6th October 2022. To learn more about the awards event and view a list of the shortlisted projects/people in each category, click here.
