Past winners and industry leaders form an expert panel of judges who assess applications, conduct interviews and scrutinise every aspect of the entries. The awards are free to enter.
CIOB chief executive Caroline Gumble said: “It was wonderful to be back last year to celebrate the CIOB Awards and the Construction Manager of the Year Award in person. There is so much talent in our sector and, even in the last two years, when there was uncertainty and unpredictability, the construction community showed how remarkably resilient it is and delivered an incredible line-up of finalists. This year, the CIOB Awards will be another important opportunity to shout out the finest construction professionals in this important industry and I am already excited about what 2022’s awards will bring.”
The Construction Manager of the Year award is open for nominations until 26 March 2022. Further CIOB Awards entry dates will be announced shortly.
