Dalcour Maclaren sponsor coursework prize for Rural Land students
Tom Hayes, third year BSc (Hons) Rural Land Management student, has won the Dalcour Maclaren prize for the Compulsory Purchase module.
Students were required to write a briefing paper for a client on the (fictional) installation of an underground cable and substation at the RAU’s Harnhill Manor Farm. Dalcour Maclaren briefed the students on the scheme and led a site visit on the farm of the proposed scheme.
Tom’s winning submission coupled the technicalities of the compulsory purchase process with a practical application of how the client could be impacted by the scheme.
Joint second place was awarded to Harry Histed and Fergus Berger.
Prizes were awarded by Andrew Roberts of Dalcour Maclaren. He said: “As the leading property consultancy for the utility, infrastructure, and energy sectors, Dalcour Maclaren recognises the value of supporting the next generation of surveyors and regularly employ talented graduates from the RAU. We are delighted to once again sponsor the third year coursework on Compulsory Purchase by providing a case study and monetary prizes for the top three responses, to support their continued development and promotion of the Rural Land Management course.”
Rebecca Marshall said: “Case studies based on real life situations encountered by rural chartered surveyors are really beneficial to our students learning experience, and makes them industry ready when applying for graduate careers. We would like to thank Dalcour Maclaren for sponsoring this prize.”
