Totally inclusive and free to enter, the Awards are open to the whole sector from buildings to infrastructure, all parts of the supply and demand chain, all disciplines, professions and trades.

We are looking for projects, organisations or individuals where outstanding performance has been achieved during the calendar year 2016.

Most sectors and regions are on the up, and it is to be hoped that excellence will return to the fore in projects. It is therefore great to recognise those individuals and organisations who are leading this trend.’

About the awards

Entries to the Awards are welcomed from large or small organisations, project teams and individuals involved in delivering building and civil engineering projects in the North West.

We are particularly keen to recognise the contribution of smaller organisations and encourage them to apply across all categories of awards as well as to the SME category.
Being recognised by your peers for excellence in construction will bring enormous benefits to your business, helping you to attract new clients, cement existing relationships and raise your staff morale. The winners of these awards go forward to the National Awards in London in autumn 2017, to compete with awards from each English region and from Wales. The only way to get nominated for a Constructing Excellence National Award is to win a Regional Award. Regular entrants to the North West awards will notice some changes in the award categories, as all of the regions have sought to be more aligned for 2017.
Professor Peter McDermott, Chair of the Judging Panel, and Constructing Excellence in the North West, said: "These awards are pan-industry, cross-disciplinary and recognise more than the great projects delivered. All of the award categories are designed to find, reward and celebrate the best people and firms. The judges are looking for the people and firms who are demonstrating how collaboration and innovation are characteristics of the North West region; who act as encouragement to investors and policy makers that the potential for a "construction power-house"
