G4C Wales Award Winners

The second G4C Awards did exactly what we hoped it would: shine a light on the future talent within Welsh construction

All of the winners were outstanding in their own way, but one or two are worth highlighting because of what they represent for the wider industry – not just the young leaders within G4C and CEWales. The winner of the G4C Future Leader category, Alexandra Egge, of Mott MacDonald, was indicative not just of the passion and energy amongst G4C as a whole, but the place that construction has in Welsh society and particularly its position in the work of the Future Generations Commissioner. Alexandra's work to create, promote and deliver a wellbeing assessment evaluation toolkit is exactly what our industry, and Wales needs. That vision was repeated in almost every G4C award winner, whether it was one of the apprentices, mentor or new professional. The same values were clear in every winner – all of which underlined the importance of adhering to the best practice principles championed by the G4C parent and mentor: CEWales.
