Lauren wins at the Women in Property Awards

The talent, skills and ambition of the region's female property and construction student undergraduates were celebrated at the annual South East Women in Property Student Awards, held at Savills on 4th June 2019. The Student Awards seek out the best Built Environment degree students, highlighting to industry the necessity to link with Universities early in the education process and improve the students' knowledge of the career options available to them. Many secure work placements as a direct result of competing in the Awards, which often translate into permanent positions upon graduation.

The South East branch made four regional awards, due to the extension geographical reach of the area, with one going to Lauren Webster, a student at London South Bank University where she is in her second year studying BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology. The judges, a panel comprising professionals in development, construction, engineering, surveying and property law, described Lauren as, "very confident and engaging, with a position attitude. Her warmth and energy would be popular in a team.

Lauren received a trophy, £300 and the opportunity to take part in Women in Property’s acclaimed mentoring programme. Lauren will co-represent the South East on September 2019, when she goes before a National judging panel, competing against 12 other regional finalists from across the UK for the National Student Awards, which are sponsored by Bouygues, Linden Homes and Savills. 

The winner will be announced at the Best of the Best Awards dinner, to be held at Claridge's on 18th September 2019. This year 137 students were nominated, across either of Women in Property's branches. 14 were selected to go through to the final.

We here, at the School of Built Environment and Architecture, wish Lauren the very best of luck!
