CW Awards 2016: Winning Project Manager crowned
CWO reveals the winner of its Project Manager of the Year Award, announced at last night’s Construction Week Awards 2016
Ramboll’s Brian Sweeney was named Project Manager of the Year at the Construction Week Awards 2016.
Sweeney was described by CW’s panel of industry judges as somebody who handles complex, large-scale projects while still finding time for staff development.
One panellist commended him for his client relationships and organisational expertise.
ALEC’s Johan Moolman was named this year’s highly commended project manager. Moolman was also applauded by the judging panel for his track record of managing large-scale, multi-faceted projects.
Brian Sweeney, associate director for project management at Ramboll said: “I’m extremely humbled, I didn’t expect to win this award. I’m very gracious and hopefully it reflects well in what I do. Winning the project manager of the year award is not just for me, I’m only the figure head for many people in my team. It’s been a pleasure to work for everyone.”
He added that that some of the most interesting projects he’s worked on are “Green Planet and Hub Zero in City Walk, and Damac Heights in Dubai Marina”.
Sweeney’s priorities for the coming year include “help Ramboll win more work, and deliver projects I’m working on the moment on time and within budget”.
Other shortlisted nominees included Ioannis Spanos of KEO International Consultants; Lay Kiat Neo from Faithful+Gould; Neal Coote of Parsons; and Pedro Duarte from Multiplex.
