The Women in Construction Awards 2016


The Women in Construction Awards 2016 took place on Wednesday 23rd March 2016 at The Palace Hotel, Oxford Road, Manchester.

The event provides a showcase for the brightest and best female achievers in the Construction and Built Environment Industries and is now in its 10th Year.

Ruskin Air Management is now in its 2nd Year of sponsorship and it was again a brilliant night, with an amazing room full of women leading the next generation in construction.

This year the award category Ruskin sponsored was Engineer of The Year – Building/Services. The nominees for the award were Agnieska Sawicka from Hilti (GB) Ltd, Carolina Bartram from Arup and Yvette Aunger from Mace. It was a tough decision; all 3 ladies have achieved so much and will no doubt continue to strive within their industries.

Our Actionair Area Sales Manager Dave Harding had his second appearance at the event and even had the pleasure of presenting the award to Carolina Bartram from ARUP. 

Also in attendance from Ruskin was our Air Diffusion Area Sales Manager Jason Laugharne who said ”It was a great night and very inspiring to meet such talented women”

Ruskin would like to congratulate Carolina and the 19 other award winners, we hope to see you soon.

Also thanks to our guests for the evening Vicky Priestly and Carolyn Sidebotham from Hannan Associates, Silja Gula and Nicole Evens from ARUP Manchester, Kelly Dew and Nikki Waud from Seddon Construction, it was a pleasure for you to join us in the celebrations.
