Dandara trainee congratulated on winning prestigious construction industry award

A Trainee Structural Technician at Dandara has been honoured with the presentation of the Isle of Man Construction Federation Award for Outstanding Construction Technician.

Max Christian received the prize during Isle of Man College’s annual awards ceremony.

The 23-year-old has spent the past two years studying for the BTEC National Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment, and his course results and learning ethic were recognised with the presentation of the award.

Each year a student from either the first or second year of studying towards the National Diploma is selected for the award. Max was chosen on the basis of his consistently high level of work throughout all modules, contributions in class, attitude towards work, team spirit and always being willing to help others.

Max, who joined Dandara in January to establish his career in structural engineering, is now taking a break from studying for the summer before beginning his Higher National Certificate in Construction and the Built Environment in September.

Dandara Director of Engineering Greg Kerwick said:

On behalf of the team I’d like to congratulate Max on this thoroughly deserved award. Since joining us earlier this year to develop his career in the industry he has proved himself to be hard-working, skilled and dedicated, qualities which he has equally applied to his studies.

We are proud to be able to support people at the start of their career in construction by providing practical and academic assistance, encouraging the next generation of industry leaders. We look forward to Max enjoying a long and rewarding career with Dandara, and I wish him all the best with the HNC course he begins in September.
