CEYH AWARDS 2020
CONSTRUCTING EXCELLENCE YORKSHIRE AND HUMBER AWARDS 2020
**TAKING SUBMISSIONS UP TO AND INCLUDING TUESDAY 26th May 2020**
Closing Date: Tuesday 26th May 2020
Shortlist Announced: w/c 22nd June 2020
Gala Awards Dinner: Wednesday 7th October 2020
Organised by the School of Built Environment, Engineering and Computing at Leeds Beckett University, the Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards (#CEYH2020) focus attention on some of the most important issues in the construction sector. They recognise the very best companies, collaborations and projects sharing best practice and inspiring others to adopt new and better ways of working that deliver outstanding results.
All types of organisations enter our awards each year; private and public sector, micro, SME and large contractors, designers, consultants, clients and suppliers – in fact anyone and everyone that is part of construction’s extended family. From all those entrants our judges select the very best projects, schemes and teams to go forward to represent the Yorkshire and Humber region at the national Constructing Excellence Awards in November. 2019 was a really great year for Yorkshire and Humber at the Nationals with five of our regional winners going on to win their respective categories and two additional regional winners being highly commended.

EASIER THAN EVER TO ENTER
There is no cost to enter the Constructing Excellence Awards and you can enter as many projects for as many categories as you like. Also, you do not need to be a Constructing Excellence or regional member to be able to enter.
The forms have been simplified to just eight questions with the final question being your chance to highlight the key successes about what you have done and why it’s different to your peers, why it should win, why it stands out from the crowd and represents excellence in construction.
This year there are 14 accolades up for grabs and all the forms can be downloaded at the links below. Please note you are allowed to enter as many projects into as many categories as you like, however you must fill in a separate form for each.

Best of the Best – No form, the judges will award an extra prize on the night to the winning project in each category that they best feel demonstrates “Constructing Excellence” in action.
*Please note: As with 2019 we will be awarding several accolades on the night in the Project of the Year categories to best represent projects of all different sizes and values. We want to ensure that smaller & community led projects have an equal opportunity to gain recognition alongside multimillion pound schemes. Therefore we will be awarding two winners in both Building Project of the Year and Civils Project of the Year against the following value brackets.
£10 million and above
> £10 million
Only ONE project in each category can go forward as Yorkshire and Humber’s representative in the national awards – this will be the entry out of the two bracket winners which the judges score the highest overall.
BOOK YOUR PLACE AT OUR “MARDI GRAS” THEMED GALA AWARDS DINNER!
We pride ourselves on delivering an event where as much attention is paid to unique theming, hospitality and staging as well as to the awards presentation itself. Over 480 people attended last year’s event and we can’t wait to welcome you all to #CEYH2020. Every year we have a different theme we actively encourage our guests to participate in and which we know adds to their positive experience.
For this year’s Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards, we are delighted to be bringing some New Orleans carnival atmosphere to the evening with our special Mardi Gras themed ceremony. Guests are encouraged to add a little Mardi Gras to their black tie outfits; from beads, masks and feathers to simply adorning the traditional Mardi Gras colours of purple, green and gold! Join over 450 of your professional peers on Wednesday 7th October for a spectacular evening of celebration with great food, hospitality, entertainment and a few surprises thrown in too! Please note, you do not have to enter our awards to attend the dinner – the evening presents a great opportunity for networking and socialising with clients and your teams.
(All tickets include a welcome drink and a three course dinner)
Table of 10 – £950 + VAT
