Outstanding building and infrastructure projects wanted for regional Constructing Excellence awards
Organised by the School for over seven years now these awards showcase the projects and organisations that have pushed boundaries in both build and design and consideration for social, environmental and human factors, improving the image of construction for the next generation.
COVID-19 has created many new challenges for the industry in our region with businesses having to adapt to survive. Off the back of a difficult year, when the sector will look to recovery, it is more important than ever that businesses make noise about everything they have achieved and how they have innovated to keep standards high.
Entering these awards will raise awareness of the work you do and how it demonstrates excellence in your market, showcasing your business to key regional and national influencers and help you to win more work. Completing a submission can also be a great exercise in personal development as well as helping you to focus your internal strategy to ensure best practice. The gala awards presentation evening itself attracts over 450 construction professionals and a dominant social media presence online and attending can be a great way to celebrate your teams’ success, attract and retain talent and network with your industry peers.
Submissions are invited across thirteen different categories, each representing the key themes of the Constructing Excellence movement such as sustainability, people development, collaborative working and digital. All category submissions will be judged by a panel of leading industry figures with the winners being revealed at the prestigious Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber awards ceremony on Thursday 25th November 2021 at the Royal Armouries in Leeds. The winners of each category will then go on to represent Yorkshire and Humber at the National Constructing Excellence Awards later in the year.
Professor Akintola Akintoye, Dean of the School of Built Environment, Engineering and Computing says “The University is proud to be organising these awards for the seventh year running. Year on year our awards continue to grow, giving us a platform to promote the great work the regional constructing industry. Being able to connect our students to the best regional companies and show them positive role models in the built environment is hugely advantageous to their studies”.
Entries should be submitted by Friday 25th June 2021. Details of how to enter the awards as well as opportunities for further involvement are available online.
