Time running out to reward the best in construction

There are less than two weeks left to enter the Construction Enquirer Awards 2018 as companies come forward to face an industry vote to pick Top Ten winners.

The categories have been shaken-up a bit this year so you can now nominate your favourite projects to work on as well as the industry’s best companies and consultants.

Nominations take minutes and are all done online.

So if you are proud of your firm, have worked on a great project or like the way another company does business it’s time to nominate them for some well deserved recognition.

Anyone can put a company or project forward so you don’t have to wait for the corporate entry – just click here and tell us who deserves an accolade.

Our awards are nominated by real construction people and voted for by your staff and suppliers rather than a room full of judges.

Last year more than 10,000 people voted in the Enquirer awards making them a true reflection of who is doing business in the right way.

Awards categories

 

  • Best Client to Work With (Public and Private)
  • Best Main Contractor to Work For (Over £250m)
  • Best Main Contractor to Work For (£50m – £250m)
  • Best Main Contractor to Work For (Under £50m)
  • Best Specialist Contractor to Work For (Over 25m)
  • Best Specialist Contractor to Work For (Under £25m)
  • Best Main Contractor to Work With (Over £250m)
  • Best Main Contractor to Work With (Under £250m)
  • Best Specialist Contractor to Work With
  • Best Construction Supplier to Work With
  • Best Consultant to Work For
  • Best Construction Project to Work On (Civils)
  • Best Construction Project to Work On (Building)

Top Ten winners will all be nominated by the industry and voted for by the industry.

Our awards night in Birmingham is a non-stuffy affair where you won’t be fleeced a fortune for a ticket.

You’ll just enjoy a laid-back evening of celebrating success and networking with the best in the business hosted by industry legend George Clarke.

Sponsors are already signing-up months before the October event to guarantee branding alongside construction’s newest and most vibrant event.

Industry titans Laing O’Rourke and Kier are confirmed as sponsors plus software recruitment specialist Engage Tech, expanding contractor Torsion Group and insurance giant JLT.

Enquirer editor Aaron Morby said: “We know how hard people work in the industry so now is the time to celebrate your success.

“Putting forward a company or project is easy online and we want to hear from as many people as possible.”

The big night is in October alongside UK Construction Week

The nomination process is now open and you can enter here before the deadline of June 8.

Entering is nice and simple and all online – no stacks of forms to fill-in or time-wasting interviews with judging panels.

Sponsorship slots are also still available – for more details click here
