Building event was won by Murraywood Construction who beat HBG Construction into second placed

Consultant Turner & Townsend’s Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield teams battled it out at the Construction Industry Dragon Boat Challenge at Salford Quays in Manchester earlier this month.

The charity boat race, sponsored by Building magazine, is based on an ancient Chinese tradition.

Last year’s winners, the Murraywood Marauders team from Murraywood Construction, kept their crown ahead of HBG's Paddle Like Crazy and Erie Basin of Laing O'Rourke Northern.

Turner & Townsend Leed's team come seventh while the Manchester office had the fastest mixed sex team.

The day raised money for CRASH, the construction and property industries’ charity for the homeless.
