SCHEME NEWS

Teambuild 2014 challenged

teams to plan, design and present

proposals for the extensive revamp

of Land Securities’ Eastbourne

Terrace site, adjacent to Paddington

Station. The real masterplan from

Fletcher Priest Architects was used

as the basis for a weekend of quick-

fire challenges. This fascinating

project provided the background

for a series of taxing scenarios at all

stages of the construction process,

watched and scored by eminent

Judges from all fields across the

construction industry. Twelve

teams, representing twenty-seven

top construction companies, made

it through to the hotly-contested

finals, and impressed throughout

with their professionalism,

enthusiasm and dedication.

The winning team, awarded a cash

prize of £2,000 by the Worshipful

Company of Constructors, was

STRATA, a group from KSS, Mott

MacDonald, Gardiner & Theobald

and BWB Consultancy. The prize

was awarded by the Master, Victoria

Russell (SCL). STRATA impressed

the judges with their consistent

teamwork, great leadership,

and their confidence and

professionalism in presentations

and under pressure. Team

members were Samantha Barclay

(RIBA), Emily Bonner (ICE), Sally

Emery (RIBA), Arran Ewin (RIBA),

Helen Payne (CIBSE) and Emillie

Webster (RICS).

The Considerate Constructors

Scheme (CCS) sponsored a new

prize for Excellence in Construction.

This prize of £1000 was awarded

to Promoveo, a team from Hoare

Lea, Sweett Group, AHR, Curtins

Consulting Ltd, and Galliford Try.

presented the award for an

outstanding performance during

the final stage Task; construction &

were studioforma, a team from

and Create Design, including
