Swansea Bay Construction Support Group Awards 2022


Swansea Bay Construction Support Group’s Annual Awards 2022 in collaboration with SNPT College, Gower College and UWTSD took place on 7th July 2022 at the Village Hotel, Swansea Bay.

The event was in recognition of the skills and talent of apprentices, highlighting their potential and celebrating the individual’s achievements in the Construction Industry.

Nominees were compiled from a pool of talented construction industry apprentices within the Swansea Bay Construction Support Group Industry region.  After much consideration and deliberation these were whittled down to a shortlist of candidates.

Congratulations to the recipients of awards on the evening go to:-

Owain Hinton, Ryan Murphy, Lewis Davies, James Cook, Nicarta Guthrie, Kim Smitham, Jordan Jones, Dalton Brown, Lewis Jones, Rowan Thomas and Joseph Murnane.

Swansea Bay Construction Support Group extend a huge thank you to its sponsors Alpha Safety Training, PCR Global and Barry Training Services, CIOB for sponsoring the winners trophies, and all companies participating in and supporting this event.

The Awards Ceremony was compered by one of Wales’ popular entertainment personalities, Kevin Johns MBE.

A raffle and auction on the evening raised valuable funds for ‘Hands Up for Downs’, a parent run charity supporting children with Down’s Syndrome and their families in the Swansea Bay Area.

Anthony Thomas, Chairman of the Swansea Bay Construction Support Group Awards, said:

“The construction industry can be a very rewarding career but is often overlooked by young adults leaving school and considering their future professional options. It is wonderful, therefore, that the Swansea Bay Construction Support Group Awards exist to not only recognise the achievements of the apprentices embarking on their chosen career with the member companies, but also to promote positivity about the many varied opportunities available to individuals who are choosing a career when leaving school or college, or who are looking for a change in direction.

“They really do represent the future of the construction industry in the region, and we wish them all the best for the future.”

Gemma Mineur, Training Officer at SBCSG Group, said:

“It is a delight to be able to bring back the Swansea Bay Construction Support Group Awards after a nearly three-year gap due to Covid. The event will shine a bright light upon the achievements of local apprentices as they begin one of the many exciting career paths available within the construction sector.”

Marc Cheverton, Director, Craftsman Flooring, said:

“The SBCSG Awards, for small businesses like ours, provide a unique and exciting opportunity for us to recognise and reward our highly valued trainees & apprentices at a prestigious event.”

Mark Bowen, Managing Director of Andrew Scott Ltd, said:

“Andrew Scott Ltd is committed to investing in apprenticeship programmes to empower the next generation of skilled employees. We believe commitment to training and development is the key to a successful future for our company and the wider construction industry.

“One of our key business objectives is to maximise the ‘Welsh pound’ by recruiting local apprentices and training them for long-term careers, with help and support by local organisations such as Swansea Bay Construction Support Group. We are delighted that two of our Apprentices, Jordan and Nicarta, have been shortlisted for the Swansea Bay Construction Support Group Awards and look forward to celebrating their success with their peers at the Awards dinner.”
