The North West CIOB Group recently held its annual Student Challenge, its most successful event ever with 12 teams of 4 students (48 students) engaged this year in the challenge.
Jonathan Greenhalgh of Green PM was one of the judges of the students’ presentations and after a long day the winners were Blackburn College Team 2.
Said Jonathan ‘this team has been runner up for the past two years and as they finish their degrees this year, this was their last chance to participate and so this was an extra special victory for them and very well deserved.
Novus is a dedicated, passionate group of young professionals who place the CIOB at the heart of their career. Novus provides a network for students, post-graduates and young professionals developing their career in construction. It’s also an environment that encourages innovation and initiative and it’s great to see so many teams involved in this year’s challenge.’
Second place went to Blackburn College Team 3 and third place was University of Salford Team 2. The winning team will be taking part in a fantastic four week placement on the refurbishment of Bolton Town Hall.
