Terry Stocks awarded MBE in New Year’s Honours List

MBE for Faithful+Gould’s Terry Stocks recognises 40-year career dedicated to innovation.

Terry Stocks’ 40-year career dedicated to innovation in the construction industry has been recognised by His Majesty the King in the New Year’s Honours list.

Stocks, UK head of public sector and education and a director at Faithful+Gould, was awarded an MBE, recognising his pioneering work as one of the UK’s leading authorities on building information modelling (BIM).

The award of Member of the Order of the British Empire also recognises the chartered structural and civil engineer’s contribution to construction innovation in both the public and private sectors.

Stocks, who is married with three children, said it was a real privilege to be awarded with the MBE.

He said: “I have been lucky to work for some great organisations, such as the Ministry of Justice, and Faithful+Gould/Atkins, along with some great people as well - too many to mention!  

“I have always worked to try to make a difference, so to be recognised in this way is a real high point - but I fully intend to carry on with more of the same.

“Working with excellent people to deliver excellent outcomes is extremely motivating.”

James Butler, UK and Europe managing director at Faithful+Gould said: “All of us at Faithful+Gould offer our congratulations to Terry for this thoroughly deserved award.

“He has been integral in delivering innovation and efficiencies for our clients in a crucial sector for our organisation, drawing on a huge amount of experience from a career spanning over 40 years.

“It’s a great start to the year to see that body of work being recognised in this way.”

Stocks, from London, joined the team at Faithful+Gould in 2015. Since then, he has been at the forefront of delivering innovation across many key government accounts, including the Department for Education, the Ministry of Justice and the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

He previously spent 24 years at the Ministry of Justice, where he led on the UK government’s first BIM projects (HMP Cookham Wood) and the cross-government departmental delivery of the UK BIM Mandate, as part of the UK BIM Task Force.

He has also chaired both the government BIM Working Group attended by government departments, large UK infrastructure providers and local government representatives and the UK Cabinet Office New Forms of Construction Procurement Group, developing and implementing collaborative procurement models across UK government departments.
