Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards 2018: Presenting our Winners and Highly Commended!

Share This:

Congratulations to all the companies who walked away with accolades at last Thursday’s 2018 Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards (#CEYH2018). Held at the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds, the standard was extremely high once again and there were certainly no easy categories to judge – the calibre of the projects that didn’t win only serving to illustrate the many examples of construction best practice taking place in our region.

The organisers are in the process of contacting all the entrants with comments and feedback about their specific projects but in the meantime please view the full list of winners and highly commended below.

The winners now go on to represent the Yorkshire and Humber region at the National Constructing Excellence Awards in London in Autumn. The CEYH team hope you will join them in wishing all the companies the best of luck and hoping they bring it home for the region!

Further information about this year’s awards and how to get involved in #CEYH2019 can be found at http://ckegroup.org/cexcellenceyh/ceyh-awards-2018/.
