Welcome to the 12th annual North West Regional Construction Awards.

The annual Awards event has become recognised across the region as the biggest and brightest celebration and showcase of excellence for our construction and infrastructure sectors. More significantly, the applications process and the rigorous judging procedure serve to both drive improvement, and to demonstrate excellence, in the delivery of construction and infrastructure, and indeed facilities of all kinds.

With 18 categories ranging from 'Client of the Year' to 'People Development', these awards are pan-industry and recognise more than the great projects delivered; they focus on people, their behaviour and the approaches taken to achieve best social value, as well as, economic value.

Last year, we saw an increase in both the number and the quality of entries to the Awards. As a result the North West won more categories than any other region at the National Constructing Excellence Awards, held in London in November, 2017.

Since the publication of the Farmer Review, 'Modernise or Die', in October 2016, National Constructing Excellence has marked a shift in gear and clarified the core mission to support disruption of the industry’s delivery models for better social and economic built environment outcomes. This shift is reflected in the Awards.

Consistency in the Awards process and categories is maintained through the Constructing Excellence Regional Partnership. To the challenges and opportunities presented by market conditions and BREXIT, in our region we can add devolution. Early 2018 will see the publication of a national 'Construction Sector Deal' and 'Greater Manchester will work in partnership with the Government to develop a Local Industrial Strategy'. These initiatives recognise both the peculiarities and particularities of the construction sector and the regional economies. The regional Constructing Excellence Awards can become an important source of evidence for how these policies need to play out differently across the regions and may result in more Local Construction Industry Strategies.

Regular entrants will notice some changes this year – the Young Achiever Award has a new name and new criteria. This Award is now called the G4C Future Leader Award. We also have two new categories the Offsite Construction Award and the Outstanding Achievement Award. Please ensure you read the application forms thoroughly if entering into these categories.

The Awards are hosted by the Centre for Construction Innovation (School of the Built Environment) at the University of Salford and by Constructing Excellence North West.
