Construction consultancy Turner and Townsend has been awarded best Project Management Firm at the 2020 Construction and Real Estate (CoRE) awards for the second year in a row.
Centred around sustainability, innovation and excellence, the CoRE awards bring the construction and real estate industries together to honour, network and educate by promoting best case practices in the sector.
The project management firm of the year award recognises the most outstanding project management firm that inspires, leads and enables the best possible delivery of projects, sustainable practices and future developments.
Robert Gichohi, Director, Project Management at Turner and Townsend Kenya said that the award is a testament to our continued dedication to delivery of world class project management services locally and our ability to commit to the region over the past 33 years.
“Our submission to CoRE Nexus demonstrated our consistent excellent service delivery of projects – from inception through to handover and how our business is aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and UN Global Compact ten principles, most notably the industry innovation and infrastructure goal in this particular instance,” he added.
The company’s business has had a significant, positive impact within communities, environment, workplace and wider market because of what it says is a clear approach to sustainability.
“The green building design consulting work we have done to assess and direct planning and decision making towards sustainable buildings has been first of its kind in East Africa. Our support is different from the work of the regulatory bodies with a bias towards the adoption of globally benchmarked green building standards.”
“The award builds our credibility in the market, however, winning it twice in a row is much more significant because it inspires confidence in our clients and the industry at large about the choice they have made to partner with us on projects,” said Mr Gichohi.
Turner& Townsend says that it has helped developers achieve; Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED®), IFC EDGE Certification and Green Star Africa Certification.
