It’s that time of year again………!

Held every year in July our awards are a celebration of the very best the regional construction industry has to offer, recognising and rewarding the pioneering individuals, projects and organisations that are truly moving our sector forward.

Fully inclusive, entries are welcome from any organisations, companies and/or project teams involved in delivering “excellence in construction” across built environment projects in our region over the last 12 months. There are 12 categories to choose from, each representing the core themes of the Constructing Excellence improvement agenda,  and multiple entries are welcomed. We also present a ‘Best of the Best’ award on the night itself so you may even take away an additional award for your trophy cabinet! Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to show off your achievements to over 400 of your professional peers.

The closing date for entries is Friday 28th April 2017 with the winners being revealed at our gala dinner which this year will be held on Friday 7th July 2017 at the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds from 6.30pm onwards. As always we can promise you our usual blend of professionalism, great food, hospitality with lots of entertainment thrown in too!

Our spectacular 2016 ceremony  saw a record number of entries, displaying a fantastic array of companies, organisations and projects exemplifying best practice and proving how Yorkshire & Humber leads the way in construction innovation. Our winners then went on to compete against the other regions at the National Constructing Excellence Awards held in November where we scooped 4 awards including the coveted Project of the Year. It was our most successful haul to date and capitalised on the record breaking successes of the previous year. See link here for the full list of 2016 National Winners.

We like the way the region’s crown is looking at the moment and we want to better that success this year but we need your help! We need you to submit your projects; big or small, vertical or horizontal and help us show what building a northern powerhouse really looks like! If you would like to know more about the ethos behind the awards and what other regions are up to, please download the official CE Brochure @ Constructing Excellence – Rewarding Success with our regional awards programme 2017

So get working on those entries and who knows you might just walk away a double/treble winner!

If a well known brewery did awards ceremonies… they still wouldn’t be as good as ours! Our ceremony is an experience as well as a celebration. Every year we work with our dedicated yet enthusiastic group of suppliers to bring you a unique event, always different from previous years but with the same professionalism and dedication to showcasing the best the industry has to offer.  From exciting AV and technology to top notch entertainment, networking, hospitality and food – you are guaranteed to go home with a smile on your face, a pocket full of business cards (and maybe a couple of trophies too!). Our awards are still excellent value compared with similar corporate ceremonies and every year we work hard to give you maximum exposure for the price of your ticket. If you have not been to one before then buy a couple of tickets, find out what we are all about – we are sure you won’t be disapointed! The costs are:

£800 + VAT for a table of 10

£85 + VAT for an individual place

All ticket prices include a networking drinks reception, a three course dinner, entertainment, professional hosting and of course a few surprises too! (good ones, we promise!)
