Generation for Change G4C

The recent Generation for Change (G4C) awards, part of Constructing Excellence North East, have recognised the contribution of Newcastle students and alumni to the profession. 

Master of Architecture student, Ruta Bertauskyte, was announced as winner of the Student of the Year – Higher Education award after a nomination by FaulknerBrowns.  The award is for ‘someone who see no boundaries to what they can achieve. An academic high achiever, this individual is also determined to make a positive contribution to the construction industry, education and the local communities in which they work’.

APL alumna, Irina Korneychuk, also won the Future Leader award after a nomination by FaulknerBrowns.  It was noted that ‘Irina is an outstanding individual not only in their field at work but also in the industry and is a keen advocate to encourage upcoming young professionals in construction’.  This follows on from Irina’s recent success at winning the Architects’ Journal Inspiring Graduate Prize.
