We are so proud at apT! LABC Superstar Awards

It has been great news this week for the apT Building Control Team who have just picked up 2 Highly Commended certificates from the LABC at their awards ceremony.

Nicola Corfield: Rising Superstar Award.

Since her arrival at apT in January 2018, Assistant Building Control Surveyor Nicola Corfield has bought new energy, drive and positivity to the team. Her commitment to customer service and the delivery of apT services has seen Nicola lead the way with innovation and care for her colleagues and our clients.

With a fresh pair of eyes, Nicola has reviewed and streamlined our processes and implemented a more efficient and quality assurance based procedure, benefitting both staff and our clients.

Working with our clients Nicola is always ready to go the extra mile by supporting the customer to achieve their goal, whether it is help filling in a form or spending time talking through developments on or off site, making sure that their project delivered is safe and meets the standards required.

She has recently been involved in a Telford based project at the Princess Royal Hospital who were redeveloping accommodation blocks for A&E staff. Nicola delivered the Building Control Services for this valuable project in her own time, enabling the A&E team to attract staff to work at the hospital and continue to deliver lifesaving services.

Being a positive ambassador for the industry and recognising the importance of educating future generations to consider Building Control as a career she also attends seminars and conferences for school leavers, inspiring and enlightening them on how a career in Building Control can open up a world of opportunities.

In addition to of all of this she has also completed her Masters in Building Surveying and is now looking to complete her RICS APC in her own time.
