17 June 2015
Adam James, a final-year BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology student at London South Bank University (LSBU), has received a prestigious Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Fund Award.
The CIOB is the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership and its Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Fund Award has been established to recognise and reward some of the future's brightest construction minds.
As a CIOB-accredited university, LSBU nominates one outstanding student for the honour each year. The award recognises academic attainment, strong motivation and ambition in the built environment sector, and also the student's potential to make a significant contribution to society. It includes a prize of £500 as well as a CIOB certificate.
Adam James' nomination reflects the strong leadership and team-working skills that he showed throughout his degree. He was also commended for his excellent attention to detail and for participating fully in extra-curricular and career-development activities, organised for students by LSBU's School of The Built Environment and Architecture.
Commenting on the award, Adam said: "It's an honour to receive a QEII Jubilee Fund Award from the CIOB. I've really enjoyed my studies and have taken every opportunity to take part in the many supporting activities that LSBU has offered me, on top of my course. This award will really help me find my feet in the construction industry and I'm grateful to LSBU for nominating me."
