LABC Building Excellence Awards 2021 winner: Best Residential Site Manager

Press Release
Jessica Dowdy

More than 750 leading construction industry figures attended the LABC Building Excellence Awards at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel to acclaim best practise, quality and standards in construction.

These were the first Building Excellence Awards since 2019 following the global pandemic and LABC has revised the awards to focus more on professional skills and competence – dividing the awards into two: ‘people’ and ‘places’.

A panel of industry experts judged a list of the highest quality projects and teams from around England and Wales to showcase solutions to complex technical or construction issues, site constraints, technical innovation and the building control professionalism that leads to safe, sustainable and high quality construction projects.  

LABC is delighted to announce the winner of the Best Residential Site Manager is Jessica Dowdy, St George City Ltd in London.

The judges considered Jessica’s dedication to ongoing training, most recently completing the Prince2 Practitioner Qualification. Jessica is also part of St George’s steering group for diversity, inclusion and women in property attending NAWIC and Women in Property events. She arranges CPD sessions for her project team, suppliers and contractors and as a project leader she learns by teaching others. She is a certified Effective Leadership on Site trainer and also delivers training to colleagues on health & safety and sustainability practice.

Congratulating Jessica, Lorna Stimpson, LABC Chief Executive said, 

“These new style awards reflect LABC’s new focus on skills, quality and competency and reflect the best in construction from a technical perspective. Jessica is an exceptionally well rounded construction professional. I have no doubt this will fuel her success throughout her career.
During the peak of COVID she solved supply chain, labour and build quality issues whilst maintaining high standards. Her tenacity and resolve during this challenging time was commendable. Jessica’s work enhances the reputation of construction, delivering the ‘Most Considerate Site’ award in 2019 as well as achieving Gold and Silver awards in subsequent years.”
