Ten years after we spotted Steve McGuckin and Ivan Harbour, Building is hunting for another 40 people under the age of 40 who are sure to change construction as we know it. So, if you are sitting next to a future industry leader, let us know …
Ten years ago, Building interviewed 40 of the construction industry’s most promising under-40s about their ambitions, heroes and where they saw themselves in the year 2010. Now the time has come to find out what they have been up to since then.
Building will be running a feature with the now under-50s in the spring to touch base and reveal whether the 40, including the likes of Jason Millett, Anna Stewart, Steve McGuckin, Vince Clancy and Ivan Harbour, have achieved the goals they were aiming for back in 2000. So keep aneye out for it.
Not content with just revisiting our first 40 under 40, Building is also on the hunt for a brand new set of construction’s rising stars. The 2010 batch will comprise the people who look set to achieve great things in construction over the next decade and the ones to watch over the next few years.
We will be looking for a cross-section of the whole industry, from project managers to architects and specialists to engineers. The only criteria for entries are: each should include a brief paragraph outlining why this person should be considered for the final list based on their achievements to date and plans for the future; and each entrant needs to be under 40 until August 2010.
If you would like to nominate one of your team members, a colleague, or yourself for Building’s 40 under 40 2010, please send the person’s name, age, job title, company name and reasons for nomination – along with your own name and job title if you are nominating someone else – to Emily Wright at email@example.com by Friday, 19 February 2010.
The final 40 will be notified by Building by the end of March and will feature in a special edition of the magazine later in the year.
