Female member beats 300 to land top performance award
Sharon Dempster, a bid coordinator at Farrans Construction, was presented with the Best Overall Performance Award at the recent CIOB Annual Lecture and Awards in Northern Ireland.
Dempster won for her outstanding results in the CMP programme in 2017, achieving the highest marks of 300 candidates worldwide.
The annual lecture, which was delivered by Peter Reavey and Garry Farmer from Graham-BAM Healthcare Partnership, focused on the construction of the £85m Ulster Hospital Phase B2 Inpatient Ward Block, which was awarded the overall winner at the CEF/Specify Construction Excellence Awards 2017.
With over 80 people in attendance, certificates were then awarded to candidates who successfully passed their CIOB examinations last year through QTAS and Training LMS training organisations. Certificates were also awarded to highest performing GCSE and NVQ students.
