We are pleased to announce that we are now taking submissions for the Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire & Humber Awards 2015. Last year’s awards were bigger & better than ever with a record number of submissions and over 350 professionals, representing a broad cross section of the construction industry, coming together at our gala dinner at Sheffield City Hall to celebrate the best that the regional built environment sector has to offer. Two of our regional winners were also victorious at the Constructing Excellence national awards in London last November, showing that construction innovation in the region is right up there with the best the UK has to offer (read more about last year’s winners here).

There are 13 different categories each representing the core themes underpinning the Constructing Excellence agenda including a new category for 2015, BIM Project of the year. Fully inclusive, entries are welcome from any companies, organisations or project teams involved in delivering built environment projects across the region. Our awards are completely free to enter and you are welcome (& indeed encouraged!) to submit as many entries as you like.

Entering the awards can bring numerous benefits to your business including raising your profile, introducing you to a wider client base and give you new market opportunities. It also gives you a great opportunity to reward the hard work of your employees over the last 12 months.

The close date for entries is Friday 15th May 2015 with the winners being announced at our gala dinner, this year to be held in York on Friday 17th July 2015 at the National Railway Museum.
