A ‘passionate’ quantity surveyor has been awarded a top prize at a prestigious London awards night.
Stacey Kirkham, from Belper, was presented with the surveying prize by the Duke of Gloucester’s Young Achievers Scheme.
The 25-year-old who works at Interserve in Alfreton impressed the judges with her dedication to the industry and her passion for encouraging young people to consider construction as a career choice.
She joined Interserve at just 17 in a traineeship programme and has since completed a degree.
And during an awards ceremony at the Royal Institute of British architects she joined more than 200 senior industry figures and HRH The Duke of Gloucester to receive a prize for her work.
The finalists were judged by an esteemed panel of industry experts through a rigorous process of presentations and interviews earlier in the year.
The judges commented: “Stacey’s passion both for the work she does as a quantity surveyor and for her role as an ambassador, educating schoolchildren about opportunities in construction, shines through like a beacon.
“She is a great role model to others considering a career in construction.”
