Castlehouse Construction are proud to announce that our site manager, Adam Stockdill, has been given a special award for exceptional achievements by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

Sam Dibaj, Chair of the CIOB Leeds Hub Committee, presented the Certificate of Excellence and prizes in a virtual awards ceremony to only 4 students including Adam in July 2020.

He told the winners: “It’s our aim to inspire the next generation of construction industry professionals. You’ve all been recognised for the skills that you have, that are pivotal to working within the construction industry: Communication, teamwork, having a positive attitude and maintaining high standards.”

“Not many would be able to achieve what Adam has achieved” said the college and CIOB.

After lockdown, Adam was straight on site working at a hospital. He and Castlehouse became extremely busy as they supported construction work. Including theatre upgrades, creating isolation wards, fitting extra scrub rooms. This was while some areas of the hospital were closed for essential roofing work. Again, through this time, he found a way to balance work, college and life without letting his grades fall.

Commenting on the award and his role at Castlehouse, Adam Stockdill said: “This CIOB award is a high acknowledgement of merit a Site Manager can receive in the construction industry. So it’s a huge achievement to receive. The role of being a Site Manager is often challenging. But there are so many rewarding factors that make the job so worthwhile including this recognition.

“I want to thank Castlehouse for their support with my studies and Charlotte, my partner and family for their continued patience and support whilst I committed myself to my study.”

Phil Dewell, Construction Director at Castlehouse added. “Absolutely delighted Adam has been awarded with this prestigious CIOB Award. 1 of only 4 students.  We can mirror Adam’s commitment and positive attitude to maintaining high standards.  He is a great asset to Castlehouse and our team. Well done again Adam”
