Kings Norton man Pierce Browne has won a gold medal at this year's national Construction Manager of the Year Awards final, staged by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
Mr Browne, who is employed by Solihull-based George Wimpey West Midlands, won the gold medal in the 'Housing 3 Storey's & Under' category for his work on The Mall, Erdington - a £31 million housing development consisting of 234 townhouses and apartments on the site of the former Highcroft Hospital.
His production director, Keith Gaulton, said: "This is the second time in three years Pierce has won a gold medal and I think that says a great deal about the quality control and professionalism that he and George Wimpey West Midlands brings to bear on its construction work.
"Pierce had to compile a detailed report on the development and present it to a panel of distinguished judges, who rigorously inspected the site earlier in the year - and he put in a lot of extra effort and commitment above the call of duty."
Chris Bly, the CIOB's chief executive, added: "These awards have honoured the industry's highest achievers for over 25 years and reflect the importance and ability to skilfully handle partnerships, both public and private, through the truly multidisciplinary management skills which the construction industry demands and attracts.
"Construction is the world's largest industry and affects the bottom line of every other business. To reach the final is a tremendous achievement and to win a gold medal signifies real excellence."
