Teamwork to the fore

l £1,500 cash prize awarded for winning world-leading eco-town development

Nine teams from the construction industry, ranging from town planners to building services engineers, competed for prizes totalling £4,600 at Teambuild 2011 in November. The event, held at at Eynsham Hall, Oxford, challenged teams of young professionals to plan, design and deliver a world-leading eco-town development. The event focused on developing skills in leadership and coordination beyond the sum of individual skills, reflecting the way teams must work together in the construction industry. While some of the teams lacked architects

Graham Manly, who was president of CIBSE in 2004/05, has been appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), in recognition of his contribution to the building services sector. A chartered engineer, Manly

also served as president of the HVCA in 2008 and is currently chairman of its communications committee. Manly currently serves on the board of SummitSkills and is a member of the Institute of Refrigeration, and he was a former chairman of the Building Services Research and Information Association. He was managing director

of AG Manly and Co from 1982 until its acquisition by the Gratte Brothers in 2000, and is now the company’s business development director, focusing on technical innovation.
