David Bucknall OBE FRICS was one of Birmingham’s best known businessmen. Born in Wolverhampton, he qualified as a quantity surveyor in 1961 and went on to become a leading figure in the profession, before founding global property and construction practice Rider Levett Bucknall.
David project managed the construction of Birmingham’s Symphony Hall, International Convention Centre and National Indoor Arena and set up the Birmingham Community Foundation charity which distributes grants to local grass roots projects. David was well known for helping young people achieve their potential, which is why the scholarship has been set up in his memory.
The David Bucknall Sponsorship is aimed at helping students from disadvantaged backgrounds develop a career in construction and property. The scholarship, which is being offered to young people who have already applied for courses at Birmingham City University, will also provide students with work experience, placements and guidance from Rider Levett Bucknall.
