Speaking of the 2017 Overall Construction Manager of the Year, CIOB President Rebecca Thompson said Margaret Conway was an inspiration for anyone thinking of entering the industry.

“As well as remaining in control of the immense technical and logistical challenges of her day job, her inclusive style has encouraged young people to get involved in construction,” she said. “We will watch her career with interest.”
