Top 100 most influential Women in Construction
The Top Most Influential Women in Construction award is an event that aimed to showcase women in the sector. These nominations help shine a light on female and non-binary role models to make them more visible and accessible through their actions and support of others.
All women on this list come from a wide range of backgrounds and professional experiences, some are experienced business owners, engineers, architects and project managers. However, they all share a common passion for building a better future.
Once the list of nominations was compiled, a group of independent judges looked at the women’s achievements, potential, leadership skills and the influence of each nominee, to decide on the shortlist.

As one of the 100 influencers, NFB (National Federation of Builders) has invited Christine to join the ‘Top 100 Legacy Programme’. A great opportunity to represent Thakeham as an organization that embodies diversity, inclusion, and equality.
