TWO senior managers from Barnes Construction have continued to build their way to the top by achieving GNVQ Level 5 in construction management.

Project manager Nick Timms (pictured right) and senior site manager Richard Groom (pictured left) undertook the course at Colchester Institute in Essex. The course, which focuses on the core roles, functions and responsibilities of a construction manager, is designed for construction managers working in a wide range of job roles and is the highest level in the NVQ framework.

Mr Timms has worked for Barnes Construction since 2001. He plays a key role in the delivery of projects, providing advice on buildability, value engineering, programme information and supporting the design function.

Mr Groom joined Barnes Construction in 1998 as assistant site manager. He soon progressed to site manager, and in 2003 he became senior site manager.

Managing director Nick Fayers said: “As a company, we encourage all our staff to push themselves in their professional development. By completing NVQ Level 5, Richard and Nick have demonstrated their ability to apply a significant range of fundamental principles across a wide and often unpredictable variety of contracts. This achievement has also recognised their ability to form and lead a project delivery team, as well as oversee the job, from initial idea through to the hand-over of the completed building.

Mr Timms and Mr Groom are now eligible to apply for corporate membership of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
