The winner of the Construction Manager of the Year Award is Marc Burton for his work on the £6.6m Jersey General Hospital – Nightingale Wing.

He beat 76 other finalists in ten categories after managing building of a 180-bed hospital in just 25 days for Garenne Construction.

While many Nightingale hospitals were being constructed around the country during the pandemic Burton’s team faced a unique challenge – no company on the island was big enough alone to cover a specific trade task.

This meant he had to find innovative ways of helping competing suppliers work collaboratively.

Five floor-laying companies had to work together to install the vinyl in 24 hours, and it was a similar story for carpenters, service contractors and many other aspects of the development.

Burton was able to rapidly shrink design time – placing key orders within the first 72 hours – by reproducing the work done on the Manchester Nightingale by parent company Garenne Construction Group. This was key while other Nightingale hospitals around the UK competed for materials.

After receiving the award Burton said: “It’s brilliant – I’m a bit lost for words! I was here when the 2008 winner won 13 years ago.

“I want to say thank you to the co-directors at Garenne and to all the guys on the project. The whole process is about the individuals, but we all know there’s a team that sits behind everything we do. Jersey’s got such great industry so I’m so glad to represent it and the UK.”

Caroline Gumble, Chief Executive of CIOB, said: “Our Construction Manager of the Year competition has always been about highlighting the very best of leadership and talent in our sector.

“Every year I’m impressed by those who make it to the finals but I’m particularly delighted this year that a long-standing member of the Institute and long-time champion of the industry has been recognised for his achievements.

“Many congratulations to Marc Burton. He is a truly worthy winner, someone who leads by example and understands the impact of his work, making a huge positive difference in the industry and in the community.”
