George Clarke will be hosting the awards followed by a comedy set by Seann Walsh

Clarke was a big hit at the inaugural awards last year and he will be joined by comic Walsh who will round the night off with a storming set of stand-up.

It is less than a month to the big night on October 10 and tables are selling out fast.

The Top Ten winners were confirmed earlier this month after more than 10,000 votes were cast by the industry. All the winners are also listed below.

Awards night in Birmingham will see the construction world gather to pay tribute to its favourite firms during UK Construction Week.

Being voted for by your peers makes an Enquirer Top Ten place a unique badge of honour – awarded to construction companies by construction people.

The industry has spoken and chosen its best places to work at and the best companies to do business with.

Winning contractors, clients and suppliers have been backed in their thousands by staff and their supply chains.

Tickets are now on sale for the event which is the perfect chance to say thank you to the staff and suppliers who have helped win these prizes.

Enquirer editor Aaron Morby said:“It will be great to see all the winners on the night and tables are booking up fast as firms rightly reward their staff with a top night out.”

A raft of big-name sponsors are already backing the awards.

On board so far are Engage, Torsion Group, JLT, Hadley Group, Screwfix, Cemex, Laing O’Rourke and Velux.
