Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards 2020 – The Winners

Share This:

Many thanks to everyone who tuned into our online awards ceremony.

Congratulations to all the finalists, highly commended and the winners of the #CEYH2020 awards. The regional winners of each award category now go on to represent Yorkshire and Humber at the National Constructing Excellence Awards in early 2021 (See details below for individual category winners).

However once again, the real winner of the awards is the industry itself. The shear diversity of projects and organisations making up this year’s shortlist proves that the sector is responding positively and proactively to economic uncertainty, committing to high standards and striving to change the way that it builds for the better.

We look forward to seeing what you submit next year!

Mental Health Awareness in Construction

Share This:

Tuesday 14th May 2019 | 09:00 to 11:00 (registration from 08:30)

Clarion, Elizabeth House, 13-19 Queen Street, Leeds, LS1 2TW

During Mental Health Awareness week, Constructing Excellence Yorkshire & Humber will be joining forces with Leeds law firm Clarion to deliver this very important event looking at mental health in the construction industry and what companies can and are doing to try and reverse the industry’s shocking statistics in this area (data from the Office of National Statistics found that between 2011 and 2015, of the 13,232 in-work suicides recorded, those within the skilled construction and building trades made up 13.2% – despite construction accounting for little over seven per cent of the UK workforce).

THE PANEL

Clare King, Legal Director, Private Client, Clarion

As a trained Mental Health First Aider Clare will share the importance of being aware of mental health issues and the benefit to the workplace. Clare will demonstrate how you can create a more inclusive culture and the initiatives Clarion has put in place.

Joanna Dodd, Senior Associate, Employment, Clarion

Joanna often advises on issues around employees’ mental ill-health and will explain when mental health conditions might be classed as a disability in law and what the employer’s obligations are in this area. Joanna will also discuss the practicalities of managing absence linked to mental health issues, what adjustments might be necessary and appropriate, and how performance/conduct issues (which are or may be linked to an underlying mental health condition) should be dealt with.

Eddie Murphy, Founder of Ollio Consult

Eddie will talk about the need for healthy buildings and the emerging concepts around biophilia in the workplace which incorporate design that promotes mental and physical wellbeing leading to happier, healthier and more focused work teams.

Finalists announced for Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards 2017

Share This:

A hospital helipad, several flood protection schemes and a former nightclub redevelopment are amongst the diverse and creative schemes that have made the final at this year’s Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards (#CEYH2017).

Organised by Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber (CEYH), part of the School of Built Environment and Engineering at Leeds Beckett University, the awards are now in their 10th year. They aim to recognise and reward the groundbreaking teams, projects and organisations in the region that are driving innovation and elevating standards in the construction industry.

From L-R, (1) Edward Boyle Library redevelopment (2) Yorkshire water (3) Gatecrasher Appartments (4) Helipad on Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, (5) Scarborough Market

Sponsored by Galliford Try, awards are available in 12 different categories, each representing one of the core themes of the government industry improvement agenda. These include: collaboration, people development, value and digital construction. For the first time, in 2017, there are also prizes for both Building Project of the Year and Civils Project of the Year, in recognition of the differing challenges (and opportunities) they present for those involved. All the category finalists can be viewed here. Professor Akin Akintoye, Dean of the School of Built Environment and Engineering at Leeds Beckett, said

 

“Our awards are the perfect platform to celebrate the contribution the built environment makes to our region’s prosperity, from forward thinking clients and considerate contractors to educational institutions who support the next generation of industry professionals. We wish all the finalists the best of luck!”

 

The winners will be revealed at a gala presentation evening on Friday 7 July at the Queen’s hotel in Leeds. This year, the CEYH team will be paying homage to all that is great about the region, from innovative art and architecture and vibrant communities to picture postcard scenery and cutting edge music! There will be a keynote speech from Rosie Millard, Chair of Hull City of Culture 2017, alongside food, entertainment and the presentation of the awards, with more than 300 industry decision-makers in attendance. Tables and individual places at the event can be booked here or by phoning 0113 812 1902.

#CEYH2016 Awards: Proud to be different!

Share This:

As I write this post we are now just under five days to go until we close for this year’s Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire and Humber awards and we are very excited to see what you have all been up to in the last 12 months. We are really heartened by the response of local companies so far and can’t wait to get stuck into the judging process and organising the rest of the evening. There is still time to get your entries in – follow the links below or visit our dedicated awards page here

Not just your average awards ceremony

Here at the CKE, we take the responsibility of providing the best possible platform to showcase your projects, organisations and individuals extremely seriously, which is why you will never see us run the same event twice! Just like our entrants we aim for our awards ceremony to represent the common themes of our awards in being innovative, collaborative and dynamic.

For instance, at last year’s awards we were the only region to run a selfie competition, which was so successful that it was adopted at the nationals. Not just an excuse to take silly pictures (although that is always welcome), the selfie competition helped to raise the profile of the awards across social media giving extra coverage to the companies involved. We will be running it again this year so don’t forget to bring those phones and snap away!

If you are still undecided, here are just three more reasons why our awards are different and how your business will benefit from being involved,

  • Our dynamic team are all from construction/engineering backgrounds. With over twenty years combined industry experience, we know how to sell what the industry does best
  • Our awards are an experience as well as a ceremony. Every year the team try to do something different on the night itself to ensure the event is memorable for all the right reasons and is a real reward for the individuals and teams who take part. With this year’s Swinging from the Rooftops theme, this year is no exception! We have a number of surprises planned for you on the night – we can’t wait for you to see them!
  • Our added value with our relationships to the National Constructing Excellence network, Yorkshire and Humber Constructing Excellence Club, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Sustainability Institute and our thinkBIM, Green Vision networks. Going forward there will be plenty of opportunities for our entrants to showcase their work at our breakfast and twilight seminars, our half day conferences and through site visits.

How to enter

Fully inclusive and completely free to enter, we welcome submissions from any organisations, companies &/or project teams involved in delivering building & civil engineering projects in our region over the last 12 months. With 13 categories to choose from we are sure there is one for you! The closing date for entries is 29th April 2016 and all the forms can be downloaded from the links below.
