YPP Site Supervisor Wins Regional Award

We are delighted to announce that a member of the YPP team has won an award in a major annual construction event.

The Wates Group Yorkshire & North East Supply Chain Awards recognises businesses and individuals who have gone above and beyond in their work over the last year.

Our very own John Foster was the proud winner of the Site Supervisor Award!

Paul Dodsworth, Managing Director of the Construction & Residential North section at Wates said:

“John has been an integral part of our Lowfield project delivery team.

He drives safety standards upwards, resolving design issues in addition to managing his own workforce, and enabling Wates Group to maintain programme through challenging circumstances.”

We are very proud of John’s fantastic achievement and are glad to have him in the YPP family. We are also delighted to continue our strong working relationship with Wates.

A little bit about John…

John joined the YPP team in 2019, following five years working on prestigious building projects in Dubai with Khansaleb. John showed he was up to the task in various roles during this time, in which he acted as Site Manager, Construction Manager and Design Manager.

Following the completion of his Bachelors qualification (BEng (Hons)) from Loughborough University, John started his career as an Engineer at Interserve. Now, having achieved IEng MICE through professional development, and membership to the ICE (Institute of Civil Engineers), in 2014, John brings a wealth of experience to his role at YPP.

John lives in Shipley with his wife and two boys, aged eight and four. In his spare time (when not in lockdown), John can generally be found playing ice hockey – a particular passion of his. During his 5 years in Dubai, John helped to run an ice hockey league of 80 players, where he managed all fixtures and schedules.

He is delighted with the award (which was presented in a virtual ceremony), which recognises his hard work, professionalism and dedication.

A huge congratulations John from all of us at YPP!
