Architect Terry Farrell and engineer Joe Dwyer led the roll-call of construction industry figures honoured in the Queen's Birthday Honours last Saturday. Both received knighthoods.
Sir Terry said he was very pleased to have been recognised for services to both architecture and urban design. He said: "I think I am the first person to have been honoured for urban design, which is a positive thing."

Former Wimpey chief Dwyer, president of the Institution of Civil Engineers and chief executive of regeneration company Liverpool Vision, was knighted for services to Liverpool Vision.

Zara Lamont, outgoing director of the Construction Best Practice programme, and George Leslie, managing director of George Leslie Construction, were awarded OBEs. Lamont, who was last week named chief executive of the Confederation of Construction Clients, was given the honour for services to the construction industry. Leslie's OBE was for services to civil engineering and construction.

CBEs were handed to Richard Saxon, chairman of Building Design Partnership, and Ian Henderson, chief executive of Land Securities.

Saxon, the only professional on the Treasury's construction group, was honoured for services to construction procurement and Henderson for services to the property industry.
