North West

G4C North West is one of the newer regional groups and has been rapidly gathering momentum as the North West’s young professional voice of the UK built environment agency. We are open to anyone with an interest in joining the industry, or in their early stages of their career in the built environment sector. We run a series of events throughout the year, both with a social and educational focus. We are currently working towards hosting the inaugural G4C North West Awards in Spring 2020.

North West Chair 

Ruth is a solicitor specialising in construction law and works in- house for Costain plc. Ruth studied law at Exeter University, followed by her postgraduate year at the College of Law, Chester during which time she didn’t consider a career in the construction industry. However, after nearly 18 months as a claims manager at a professional indemnity insurance broker defending claims against architects and surveyors, followed by over five years in the construction team at Hill Dickinson LLP dealing with both contentious and non-contentious work, Ruth now has no desire to work in any other industry! At Costain, Ruth works cross-sector for the group on a variety of projects. Her workload covers the power, water, oil & gas, nuclear, rail and highways sectors. Ruth joined G4C just over two years ago and is particularly keen to promote and advocate careers in the construction industry to young people, through, amongst other avenues, improved accessibility and awareness of the breadth of professions and roles available.
