Bray People - - NEWS -

REP­RE­SEN­TA­TIVES of lead­ing build­ing con­trac­tor Clancy Con­struc­tion were in WIT re­cently to present the sixth an­nual Clancy In­dus­try Award to Lor­can Hickey from Kil­cullen as well as run­ners-up Brook Cameron from Grey­stones and Ray­mond Far­rell from County Tip­per­ary.

The awards ac­knowl­edge ex­cel­lent per­for­mance dur­ing the seven-month In­dus­trial Place­ment on the BSc (Hons) in Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment & En­gi­neer­ing pro­gramme, which forms an in­te­gral part of the stu­dent’s ed­u­ca­tion and pre­pares them for their ca­reers in the con­struc­tion sec­tor.

Wick­low man Brook worked on the Comer­agh Col­lege PPP with BAM Con­trac­tors and Ray­mond Far­rell worked on the Pro­file Park Data Cen­tre with John Paul Con­struc­tion. Kil­dare na­tive Lor­can worked with Laing O’Rourke on the con­struc­tion of a new Cross­rail un­der­ground sta­tion in the heart of cen­tral Lon­don.

With three very dif­fer­ent projects, the stu­dents all re­flected upon the im­por­tance of gain­ing such in­valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence, par­tic­u­larly in giv­ing them the con­fi­dence to work suc­cess­fully the con­struc­tion in­dus­try.

Com­pany di­rec­tors John O’Shaugh­nessy and De­clan Fitz­patrick, who were in at­ten­dance to present the awards and see the stu­dents de­liver pre­sen­ta­tions about their place­ment ex­pe­ri­ence, com­mended the qual­ity of the stu­dent’s work ex­pe­ri­ence and high stan­dard of pre­sen­ta­tion.

In ad­dress­ing the at­ten­dees, John high­lighted the con­tin­u­ing growth in the Ir­ish con­struc­tion sec­tor and the op­por­tu­ni­ties it pre­sented for grad­u­ates of the pro­gramme.

In his con­clud­ing re­marks, course leader Brian Gra­ham thanked Clancy for their con­tin­ued sup­port of the awards and pro­gramme in gen­eral.
