CN features editor wins media award

Construction News features editor Daniel Kemp has been named Feature Writer of the Year at the International Building Press Awards 2017.

New London Architecture chairman Peter Murray said: “[Daniel presented] three pieces covering a wide range of topics and the judges commented that each was well crafted, informative and impactful.

“The piece on London 2012 – Five Years On was, in the judges’ view, outstanding.”

The three articles submitted for the award were a look back at the construction of the London 2012 Olympics, an analysis of the stadium construction market, and a visit to a materials testing facility in the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire.

Daniel received the award, sponsored by Colliers International, at the annual IBP Awards ceremony held at the Four Seasons Hotel on Park Lane, London.

Also shortlisted in the category were Amber Rolt of Estates Gazette and Isabelle Priest of RIBA Journal.

Construction News was a finalist for Magazine of the Year and Lucy Alderson was shortlisted in the New Journalist of the Year category.

CN’s infrastructure reporter Jack Simpson was also shortlisted for Scoop of the Year for his work on HS2’s conflict-of-interest saga and for Construction / Infrastructure Writer of the Year.

Mental health charity Mind last month named CN ’Best Publication’ for the Mind Matters campaign.
