We were delighted to award Steve Green (MCIOB CQP MCQI MaPM) the Achiever of the Year award this year at The CE West Midlands Awards on the 1st June.

Steve works with the National Frameworks Team at Bowmer and Kirkland, with over 45 years in construction. Having worked for both International and Regional Contractors in Commercial, Design Management, Procurement and Business Improvement roles, Steve has a wealth of construction experience from a multitude of perspectives.

Steve’s journey with CE started in early 2002 whilst working at Thomas Vale Construction , where Tony Hyde was always a staunch supporter of CE and the collaborative working philosophy. TVC sponsored Steve’s diploma in collaboration and integration in construction, where Steve was awarded the CIOB certificate of excellence for the most outstanding performance on the course.

Steve initially represented TVC on the Herford and Worcester Constructing Excellence (HAWCE) committee where he remains an active member today. Then when Andrew Carpenter was brought in to revitalise CE Midlands, it was at the launch dinner in 2018 that Steve suggested that there was a need for a Quality and Compliance thought leadership group. This was driven by the findings of the earlier Edinburgh Schools Inquiry and the more recent Grenfell Tower tragedy. This was established the following year chaired by Steve and continued to until 2022, when it transitioned into the Building Safety Group to raise awareness and share best practice in support of the Building Safety Act. Recently, following his semiretirement Steve has handed the chair over to Richard Cymler of Ball & Berry

Alongside his CE commitments Steve sits on several working groups including the Technology and Error Metric groups for the Get It Right Initiatives (GIRI) and the Evaluating Quality group for CQI Consig. Having undertaken the GIRI Train the Trainer programme, he has a clear understanding of the root cause of error and where technology can help. Within CE Midlands Steve also authored their Guide to the Adoption of Digital Quality Tools in Construction, to help support those looking to adopt digital quality tools for the first time.

Steve is also one of the course tutors on the CE Midlands Diploma in Collaboration in Construction, delivering the Quality & Compliance module. Steve is passionate about connecting up the dots, both within and across businesses, to deliver a collaborative approach to quality to enhance the industries reputation and drive efficiencies
