Matthew McCarrick scored a satisfying family hat-trick in December when he achieved CIOB Fellowship, representing the third successive generation of McCarricks to do so.

Matthew’s grandfather Captain James McCarrick – who founded McCarrick Construction, the family construction company, in 1953 – joined the Institute of Builders (as it was then) in 1959 and was admitted as Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building in 1980, the same year it was incorporated by Royal Charter.

“I’m honoured to have achieved Fellowship status and will continue to promote the values of the CIOB across the North East region”

His son Michael, Matthew’s father, joined the company in 1976 and the CIOB in 1979, overseeing 40 years of expansion before retiring in 2016.

Their certificates are mounted in Matthew’s office at the company headquarters in Chester-le-Street – a proud reminder of the effort put in by the McCarricks and hard-working employees over the last 67 years.

Matthew is keen to promote the benefits of CIOB membership: “I’m honoured to have achieved Fellowship status and will continue to promote the values of the CIOB across the North East region.”
